On the days that we are feeling overwhelmed by trials, I think of the following verses:
~Psalm 121:1-2 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. (1) My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth. (2)
When it comes to encouraging John when he is feeling sick from the cancer treatments, I feel so helpless sometimes! I wish I could take away his pain – I have even wished I could have this cancer instead of him! It hurts me to see him hurting – I wonder if that makes sense at times??!! However, I believe that those who are reading this and who are caregivers will know exactly what I mean by this.
I love my beloved more than words can express and seeing him suffer is more than I can bear sometimes. It is then that I have to look to my Heavenly Father and cry out in desperation. It is the God of Glory that sustains us!
God always has something in His Word to pick up my spirit and to revive me! Praise His Holy Name!!!
