He Cares for Me!

I am learning to trust in the Lord. I want to wholly trust in the Lord. To seek Him for every area of my life. I am so glad that God - The Creator of the Universe - cares about every little thing in my life. "How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand, when I awake, I am still with thee". Daily I am learning to lean upon Him - to rely upon Him, and to seek His ways for my life.

Last year, around this same time, I became very ill. Since that time I just have not been able to get back to feeling "right". I have tried several things to help - but nothing seemed to work. My husband and I have been praying and asking God what we should do next. We have a doctor who has been a great help to us in the past and finally felt that we needed to contact him and see if we could get in to see him. He has quite a waiting list and we were confident that it would be several months before he would have an opening. I made the call on Monday morning. He "happened" to be able to make an opening for me on Thursday afternoon - of the very same week! In about 30 minutes time - we had an appointment scheduled and babysitting for the children provided. It appeared that God had opened the door for us to go.

We were able to find out what was wrong and begin treatment for it. (Seems that I have a bacterial infection in my liver. The infection has also spread into my pancreas.) It is going to take some time - but I have to tools I need to help my body get better! I am so thankful for a God that cares for us and opens doors for us when we need answers.

This morning I read in my devotions II Chronicles 16:9 - "For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew Himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him." How strong He has showed Himself to me! How humbling and awesome to think He cares for me! I stand amazed at His love.


Thanks so much for stopping in - I am going to rest for the night overwhelmed with the truth that He cares for me.


Goodnight and God Bless,
~Jane

God is good---I don't know about you , but I have found that illness really draws me to God. He allows this for our good; I have seen in our family life God's use of illness to make us realize our dependence on Him and to draw us closer to Him; it surely makes us appreciate the little things in life! I love how God opens doors and the way He surprises us by the ways He chooses to answer our prayers.
