As some of you have probably heard, my family has suffered and been through some testing lately. Our son Josh Sinning was injured with a life threatening incident on the morning of July 5. It was around 4 am when we received the phone call that Josh was seriously injured. Not a moment a parent wants to go through. I am married to a godly woman, but when these things happen it is hard to keep ourselves clinging to the Lord for we want to do all WE can to make things better. The first thing we had to do was go to the Lord in prayer.
For in Psalm 91:4 “He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and your rampart.”
God has promised to be with us at all times
“Keep the Book of the Law on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged for the Lord your God will be with you WHEREVER you go” Joshua 1:8
He does not promise sometimes - but always to be with us. If we could just look back and see how God brought Ryan Martin through his illness, by faith we cling to God.
We can look back when Cameron Renfro was clinging to life but his mother Lynette by faith stood on the promises of God.
It is in these times we cling to His Word.
In you , Lord my God,
I put my trust. Psalm 25:1
I for one will stand on His Word and His promise through all that we have gone through in life, I will not cower down in fear but boldly proclaim His Word and His promises, for this world is decaying but God does not.
Praise be to the Lord,
for he has heard my cry for mercy.
The Lord is my strength and my shield;
my heart trust in him, and he helps me.
My heart leaps for joy,
and with my song I praise him. Psalm 28:6-7
My family and I are standing on His Word and His promises. We look with joy to see what comes from this. We will Raise a Hallelujah!
Have an amazing day!
