I haven’t been writing much here in this little sphere known as the “blog world”, or virtual reality - "computer-simulated environment”.
The obvious would be time, and that is certainly partly true.
Health is another obvious - I haven’t felt very “Up” and lately found out that my thyroid, which was diognosed 14 years ago (Hypothyroidism - or low thyroid) had gone down pretty bad.
Or, I could blame it on the emotional “vortex” of parenting N. and C. right now. Ugg
I have kind of tossed around whether to continue with blogging, and had to reevaluate the “why’s”.
What I have come back to is the purpose (and my passion) for this little spot;
-I hope and pray to “Declare His Glory among the Nations”,
-To encourage others to live the Truth’s found in the Bible, even when those Truths do not always match up with the circumstances.
Secondary would be to encourage, pray for, and support others in their God Given passions for His Glory, and to gratefully enjoy the like-minded friendships that I have found “long distance”.
Right now, I apologize for not following good “blog etiquette”. I read many of your blogs, but just do not have the time to comment the way I would like. I do think of you and pray for you. If you would ever like to contact me for special prayer request, please feel free to email me.
Here is something from Scriptures that the LORD spoke to me this week;
“For it is You who light my lamp; the LORD my God lightens my darkness. For by You I can run against a troop, and by my God I can leap over a wall. This God - His way is perfect, the Word of the LORD proves true; He is a shield for all those who take refuge in Him.” Psalm 18: 28-30
This week I have been crying out to Him for help in mothering Noelani and Clive (all of my children really, but especially these two). The pain, fear and just plain ol’ bad habits that they have are really hard on Kalyn and me. Clive does some things that are very controlling and rude towards me especially. There is definitely a “darkness”...
I felt encouraged when I read the above verse and now pray it as a thanksgiving to the LORD. I am thankful that He promises to lighten this darkness that these children are in, and that by my God, I will leap over their wall of pain and fear. No doubt, only praise, because His way IS perfect; it will prove true; He is our shield. He loves to heal the sick, so I continue to trust Him each day to heal my children’s hearts.
Now do I “feel” this right now? Not really. But I must take my present “reality” and make it submit to His Truth.
And now, THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU for reading this blog, for praying for our family, for being a friend to me. I am grateful to share my heart with you here, and pray that we would all encourage each other through the good and the bad to look to HIM always, and to sing praises to the ONE who lights our lamps. May we SHINE for Him.
