This morning started out pretty rough. When Gary left for church, I didn't know if I would be able to make it. By about 9:45 I had decided I wasn't going to be able to get it together enough to go, but I kept saying "I can do all things through Christ who gives me the strength." I finally got dressed and headed to church. The first person I saw when I walked into the church, was our precious friend, Kyong.
Recently Kyong lost her husband, one of our deacons, Carl. Several months before Carl passed away, Kyong had some physical challenges of her own and she had not been able to drive for quite a while. After we greeted one another, we walked into the Fellowship Hall, and I looked around for her son, who has been driving her to church since Carl's passing. I didn't see him. I said, "Kyong, is David here?" She said, "no". Then I said, "So how did you get here?" and she said "I drove myself!" She proceeded to tell me that she had heard Jentzen Franklin's message this morning on TV, and she said "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." and then she said, "NOTHING CAN STOP ME NOW!" I wrapped my arms around her and agreed with her! I was so grateful that I had made it to church, Kyong brought so much joy to my heart!
I love her!
As I stood in the worship service, they began singing this song,
"Through You, I can do anything,
I can do all things,
'Cause it's you who gives me strength
Nothing is impossible"
I wept, thanking God for reassuring me of His promise to me!
After leaving the service this morning, I stopped by my office, and there was a card slipped under my door. I could not believe my eyes when I began to read the card,
NOTHING that comes your way is too much for you. No matter what it is, GOD IS MORE THAN EQUAL TO IT - - you're not, bt He is and He lives in you! With the Lord by your side and love all around you, there's NOTHING you can't get through.
I can do everything through Him who gives me strength, Philippians 4:13
The card was not signed. I do not know who left it for me, but
God sealed His promise in my heart! THANK YOU JESUS!
Thank you Mama for your continued, unselfish love and care for us.
After lunch I went home and took a nap. When I woke up I felt great and told Gary that I thought I was up to walking. We walked a mile and then came home and relaxed in the lounge chairs in the yard. Yes, this next picture is me chillin'. It has been such a good day.
My evening has been blessed by a visit from Ron and Christie Woodson and Jeff Meyer.
