I think it is good for us to look back sometimes and see how far we have come.
Sometimes we feel we are getting no where, heading in the same place for a long time almost as if we are stagnant and without a goal.
After I wrote the last ‘writing’, I realized how much God is with us always, and even though we sometimes are discouraged or tired or can’t seem to feel Him near us.
He is our HOPE and He is our Healer. Without that knowing we can just float in life and not seem to hang onto anything.
I know for a fact that God was with us through our journey as a couple.
When we held that first baby in our arms and couldn’t believe the miracle of life and love.
When we held the second baby in our arms and our love doubled and multiplied.
When we bought our first house and realized we were no longer renters, but home owners it was a good feeling for us and also scary to be the adult who is responsible.
We have had definite times of intense healing as we journeyed through our ‘better and worse’, we have also had times of blessing when we wondered, what we would have in our bank account or on the table for our children.
God has been with us just as he has been with you, those who choose to walk along with us in our journey called living together.
We have to look back and see and remember, what God has done.
Deuteronomy 4:29-31
[But even there, if you seek God, your God, you’ll be able to find him if you’re serious, looking for him with your whole heart and soul.
When troubles come and all these awful things happen to you, in future days you will come back to God, your God, and listen obediently to what he says. God, your God, is above all a compassionate God.
In the end he will not abandon you, he won’t bring you to ruin, he won’t forget…]
Job 11:13-20
[“Still, if you set your heart on God and reach out to him, If you scrub your hands of sin and refuse to entertain evil in your home, You’ll be able to face the world unashamed and keep a firm grip on life, guiltless and fearless. You’ll forget your troubles; they’ll be like old, faded photographs. Your world will be washed in sunshine, every shadow dispersed by dayspring. Full of hope, you’ll relax, confident again; you’ll look around, sit back, and take it easy.]
Psalm 139:1-6
[God, investigate my life; get all the facts firsthand. I’m an open book to you; even from a distance, you know what I’m thinking. You know when I leave and when I get back; I’m never out of your sight. You know everything I’m going to say before I start the first sentence. I look behind me and you’re there, then up ahead and you’re there, too— your reassuring presence, coming and going. This is too much, too wonderful— I can’t take it all in!]
It is wonderful to know, we are not alone and we have someone who listens and guides us.
I don’t know about you but I find that both refreshing and encouraging to know, that we do not have to do this journey or walk alone.
