Back to the crucible


Let's just say I've had better weekends. Right now I feel as though we are back under full frontal spiritual attack. Please pray for us... for TM... Sometimes it's difficult to find a glimmer of hope in the mess.

The hymn which has been sustaining me.

How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
Is laid for your faith in His excellent word!
What more can He say than to you He hath said,
To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled?

“Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dismayed,
For I am thy God, and will still give thee aid;
I’ll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,
Upheld by My righteous, omnipotent hand.”

“When through the deep waters I call thee to go,
The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow;
For I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless,
And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress.”

“When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,
My grace, all sufficient, shall be thy supply;
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine.”

“The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose,
I will not, I will not desert to his foes;
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
I’ll never, no, never, no, never forsake!”

We are experiencing a time of peace and it's so easy to forget about how hard those hard times are. I will pray for you from the deepest part of my heart. From that place that knows how deeply this affects you and your whole family. I pray protection for your little ones and a peace that passes all understanding for you personally. My eyes are tearing at the thought of what you must be experiencing for I know how deeply one child can affect everyone. You are loved and God chose you for this, he will equip you. Hugs Elizabeth.
