The August 1st entry ends with this word:
"Friend, you can trust the Man that died for you.
You can trust Him to baffle no plan which is not best to be foiled,
and to carry out every one which is for God's glory and your highest good.
You can trust Him to lead you in the path which is the very best in this world for you."
As we continue to walk with Caleb through this painful part of his health journey, we can trust Jesus.
As we wait for the Shepperson family to heal from their near tragic car accident, we can trust Jesus. **
As I read news of a friend's 2 1/2 year son who has just been found with a mass on his brain, I can trust Jesus.
These are not just empty words. They are true. If I didn't have Jesus to trust in times like these, I don't know what I'd do. I am so comforted by Him these days.
He is my strength.
He is my hope.
He is as sure as the setting of the sun and the rising of the moon.
While I feel the "heaviness" of the various difficult circumstances around me, I am not weighted down these days! I know that the Lord is fully in control and I am resting in that.
