Good-Bye to 2016

As I look back over this past year, my heart fills with gratitude for the proof of God’s Love in sparing my husband among other challenges.  The spiritual growth I have experienced due to the challenges has been vast and I am reminded of Isaiah 43:2 which states, “When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.”  Psalms 66:12 reads, “We went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.”

This has been so true for me in this past year and I feel very blessed.  I wish each and everyone a blessed Happy New Year!

Trials are Proof

Two days ago, my husband suffered a heart attack and was revived twice on his way to the hospital.  Later, he told me that as he lay there looking up into the faces of these angels of God, he saw only Love, not color, Church affiliation, political or sexual preference.  I am humbled as I see these precious people working together for my husband’s well-being and am aware of God everywhere.

Evil, or error blatantly tries to tempt us with fear or discouragement or overwhelm, but as I keep my focus on God, I know that trials are proof of God’s Love!
