Today I sat in the Walk-In clinic with my son as he received stitches for an injury at work. It wasn't in my plans for the day.
This afternoon, I am sitting in the local laundromat while our clothes are being dried because the dryer element has gone out in our dryer. I wasn't planning on this either.
Dave didn't go in to Rome today. He has been so exhausted that it was necessary for him to rest. Had he planned this? No, but it was a necessity. We do what needs to be done because that's just reality.
What is the blessing from all of this? It's not getting us down! It is what it is and "only by the grace of God, go I"! How much has the Lord already blessed us with that we don't deserve! I'm sure Satan would love to see these affect us in a negative way but God will provide, our child is still alive and Dave can start fresh tomorrow!
As you're praying today, please pray for Jose. He needs the salvation of the Lord and He now has the Word of God to show him how to get it! Thank you for all your prayers!
... These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off and were PERSUADED of them, and EMBRACED them, and CONFESSED that they were STRANGERS and PILGRIMS on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country... But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
