Standing Strong

With one setback after another recently, including a broken foot that kept us from visiting our son and his family in Maryland, I was whining and crying last night to my husband. What brought on this discouragement? An announcement from Maryland’s governor that one cannot enter his state without a negative Covid test. What?!? I have been looking forward to a visit to my family for months now. We were supposed to go at the beginning of the month, but then I broke my foot and ended up in a boot and can’t manage stairs. So, we postponed it only to have Governor Hogan throw a wrench into the works. Well, I am calmed down now, prayerful and hopeful that God will work things out. I have no idea how, especially since I don’t even know where to go to get a Covid test unless I have symptoms. And praise God that neither my husband nor I have experienced those! So, what will we do? We don’t know yet. It’s in the not knowing that the stress comes in.

Then there is the election that has been called by the MSM and Fox News but not certified by the states. So, in this election cycle, I am still holding fast to my faith that God will work things out. If President Trump in still in the White House, then praise God that He has saved us once more from socialism and leaders who may claim to know God but who perform ungodly acts. Nevertheless, if there is a President Biden, that doesn’t mean that God has lost His power. He is still our firm foundation and will see us through whatever happens in our beloved nation. My prayer is that, no matter what, we will continue to have freedom of religion and speech and will not fear what man can do to us.

Dr. Denison’s forum today was encouraging for me, so here it is for you to read.

And here are the Scripture verses that really stood out to me and touched my heart and mind.

Doesn’t seem very encouraging, does it? But wait….the book of Habakkuk doesn’t end here and our story doesn’t end with the wicked winning along with injustice.
I rejoice in the midst of the troubles because God is still on His throne and I am still a Christian, on the earth temporarily, and headed for my real home in Heaven.
God helps me to stay on top of things and not on the bottom looking up. Instead, I am on the top looking down at all of the chaos and waiting for God to settle things, in His time and in His way.

May the Lord bless and keep each of you in the palm of His hand, and may you find contentment in His presence. ♥️

  1. Yes, still and always looking to God!
    In my devotions this morning I was reading in 2 Timothy, and came upon this passage that seems so relevant today, Ch 4.1-5: I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and encourage with every form of patient instruction. For the time will come when men will not tolerate sound doctrine, but with itching ears they will gather around themselves teachers to suit their own desires. So they will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, be sober in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry
