December 14

I’m sitting here in my little bubble, contemplating an island getaway for a few days, when I know that there are people struggling all around me. I wish I could help them all, but some things only God can fix. When life begins to go south, does your faith go that direction too? If that happens to you, look back on those memorial markers, you know, the ones He told you to build so that you never forget how He held back the water so you could walk across on dry land. I have many, but there is one that I’ve marked “important.” If you follow my posts, you probably know that my first husband died leaving me a widow at thirty-one. However, most don’t know that the disease he died from was quite contagious. When I look back and see how God protected me and my son from it, I am astounded! Imagine the fear that gripped me while I was waiting on test results, not only my own, but my sons! I’m overwhelmed with tears, even as I write this. I’m so thankful to be alive. Look back on your memorial stones, especially the ones you’ve marked “important,” and use that to strengthen your faith in Him, and to help you get through your current struggle.

"And Joshua set up twelve stones in the midst of the Jordan, in the place where the feet of the priests bearing the ark of the covenant had stood; and they are there to this day."  Joshua 4:9
