God will make a way
God will make a way
Where there seems to be no way
He works in ways we cannot see
He will make a way for me
He will be my guide
Hold me closely to His side
With love and strength for each new day
He will make a way He will make a way
By a roadway in the wilderness
He’ll lead me
And rivers in the desert will I see
Heaven and earth will fade
But His word will still remain
He will do something new today.
This is a song, by David Moehn or something like that – and I heard it today and it gave me such comfort that we are doing the right thing with buying this house!!! We had the home inspection today and everything went fairly well. There is a lot of work to do, but structurally it’s very sound!! I have been nervous about having to get a home equity loan on this house to get it, but that song arriving on the cd right after i’d prayed about whether we were doing the right thing made me feel we’re going the right direction. I have also prayed that God will BLOCK it if it’s not right.
We're going up on our mortgage by about $400, but down on other expenses by about $200. So it should be okay. I just pray Rog has more work soon – we’re in the middle of work stoppage right now, week 4 starting tomorrow. We did save for it, though – it usually happens in the summer and it happened in the fall instead. We’re just now going to run short if we don’t get work THIS week. Pray for us, please –
Chris had to have surgery on his ear on Wednesday because he hit it so hard he got cauliflower ear. We have been watching over him at home – he seems better today so he’s relaxing a bit in the shower and I thought I’d take a minute here. Those of you who are inclined, I would appreciate prayers/thoughts for him as his ear heals. He is on some new meds that we believe are helping him now sleep at night – it’s been 5 days now that he has slept well. I hope it also calms him too so that he doesn’t bang his ears or head.
When Chris was in the hospital last summer I found this Bible verse. I have claimed it again as my promise that Chris will be guarded over by the angels. Psalm 34
17 The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
18 The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.
20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.
I pray that Chris will be delivered from this ear problem with no damage or further danger. I know the Lord is more than capable.
I know I need to go back to attending church. I want to get back into music ministry but the Lord will have to guide me back into that – I don’t see it being possible right now.
I was in the choir at churches off and on from 1987-1994, then 1999-2000. I greatly enjoyed it, and also did special music solos with guitar, and also sang for the kids in kids church that were preschool age. That was fun (that was in 2001). When Chris got too big to handle and had started all kinds of health problems, I had to quit everything. I miss it all and pray I will be privileged to be able to do it again.
BTW, I was definitely diagnosed with ADHD yesterday at the dr. All the IQ testing is done. I’m fairly high on the scoring with the attention part being lowest, no surprise there.
