Charles H. Spurgeon once wrote "Why do you worry? What possible use does your worrying serve? You are aboard such a large ship that you would be unable to steer even if the Captain placed you at the helm. You would not even be able to adjust the sails, yet you worry as if you were the captain or the helmsman of the vessel. Be quiet dear soul, God is the Master! Do you think all the commotion and uproar of this life is evidence that God has left His throne? He has not! His mighty steeds rush furiously ahead, and His chariots are the storms themselves. But the horses have bridles, and it is God who holds the reins, guiding the chariots as He wills. Our God Jehoviah is still the Master! Believe this and you will have peace. 'Do not be afraid' (Matthew 14:27)."
After reading this by Charles Spurgeon today I pondered, does God have my reins? Have I allowed Him to rein over me, over all of me, over my fears, over my unbelief? If I did I wouldn't experience fear or unbelief... because God himself says that perfect love casts out ALL fear, so when I hold onto His promises and His love for me, He reins, and by His grace and power His love casts out all fear, worry, and unbelief. Easier said than done some days... on my difficult days I often pray that God will help my unbelief. Unbelief in God and His promises is what causes worry, fears, doubt, anxiety... Lord, I believe, help my unbelief. Please God, rein in me. I am not strong enough to steer this ship Lord, so I give you the reins and I trust in You and Your perfect love. Thank you for loving me all the time even through my moments of unbelief.
If you ever wrestle with unbelief, please I urge you to read this blog from the beginning, because it documents what a mighty God we serve and it is only by His mighty hand that our family is what is today! Praise God that He is the same yesterday as He is today and I know this because I have seen His miracles in Adam's healing!
Today was a rough day for Adam, he had a difficult time concentrating and participating in therapies and this afternoon was quite agitated. It just made for a long day. This evening however, he calmed down and asked to go out for a bit. So instead of taking him home, Adam went grocery shopping with Mackenzie and I!!! It was the first time that the 3 of us were out and about by ourselves! Adam did great, at one point I asked Mackenzie to run down an isle and grab me something and Adam turned to me and said " I can't see her anymore and I need to keep my eye on her to keep her safe" He is such a good dad! What an honor it is to be my man's wife!
I can't thank you all enough for your letters of encouragement, WOW!!!! They have been incredible to read and so encouraging to all 3 of us. I am working on completing Adam's book and can't wait to give it to him. I have read him the letters as they came in, and then have been putting them in his scrapbook which is documenting his journey for how far he has come. Thank you so much for all that you all have done for us! Your participation in this journey is so vital and we couldn't do it without all of you, the body of Christ! Thank you!
Ponder this today “Our anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, but only empties today of its strength” Charles H. Spurgeon.
