Sunday Thoughts

He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. - Psalm 91:4

This has been a week of ups and downs. Actually, this has been four months of ups and downs. If I didn't have the Lord covering me - if I didn't have him covering me under his feathers as a mother hen covers her chicks - I don't think I could have made it. It is because I know that the Lord has not brought me this far to leave me now, that I can make it, day by day. 

I know that His strength has to be enough for me most days. I know that I can't make it on my own strength because I have none.

God reveals wisdom day by day. This week the wound doctor got the results back from the culture he took on my wound. He found out that the antibiotics I was on, were not going to touch the infection. As it turns out, I have two types of infection and so I'm taking two new antibiotics. I am so thankful for the prayers for wisdom that people are praying over me. No wonder I wasn't feeling better - I wasn't getting better! I've been on this new medication for 2 days now and I think it is working. It's hard to tell sometimes because I am so worn out.

I've had some tearful moments this week because I've gotten confused about things. I've mixed up dates on book reviews, forgotten where I've put things, and it's hard for me to think at times. I know this is normal because of all the anesthesia  and blood I was given. My body is not functioning as it should right now. 

However, things will get better. God is protecting me right now. He is telling me to REST. Focus on His Word because it is my shield and my rampart. I had to look "rampart" up. It is a defensive wall around a castle or a city. As a verb it means to fortify. Wow! God covers me with his wings plus he gives me a shield, plus he has a wall around me, plus he is fortifying me! All I have to do is rest under His wings and stay in His Word and pray like crazy and be fortified. 

What an awesome God! He provides what we need, when we need it. Jesus gave us a comforter in the Holy Spirit, and they all work together, as One, to see us through and strengthen us. I don't know about you, but that is enough for me!

Have a very blessed Lord's Day!

Blessings - Julie
