No Evil Shall Befall You

       Psalm 91: 9-10 Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling”

 

Wait a minute! What about all the adversities I have endured during the past several months? What about my being critically ill, confined to the hospital and rehab center and being completely dependent on others, and then returning to an upstairs apartment with twenty steps without an airlift to help me leave my daily place of abode?

However, on the positive side, I am feeling better and I am receiving help from home health and physical therapy, and regaining some physical strength. Blessed with a son who buys me any food which I request, and I’m having lots of time to write. And I truly believe that God is allowing all my adversities to refine my life and help it become more like Jesus. Although God has not protected me from many adversities, He has not forsaken me during them: He is not finished with my life and has a little more work for me to complete before calling me to my eternal home.

Heavenly Father, the past months were not easy for me or my family, but thanks for Your sustaining grace, and I trust if in Your divine plan, that soon I shall be able to live a better life. I thank You for past and present blessings and ask these blessings in Jesus’ name. Amen.
