guides, steadfast love

Last week, my husband had another stroke. It didn’t cause a lot of damage. He spent most of his time in the hospital to get testing done to be sure there is no place in his body that is generating clots. (There doesn’t seem to be.)

I will say that having a second stroke since February 2017, third since April 2015,  and a second hospitalization this month was discouraging. Having to cancel our long awaited vacation was disheartening! Yes, it’s true that it was better for him to have the stroke here than while we were traveling. But that didn’t make it any less disappointing. stop

Underlying my natural disappointment is the belief that GOD guides us. He has been all these years and He will continue to do so. He loves us. His love for us is the steadfast kind of love that sticks with us no matter what happens. He has stuck with us and will continue to as He guides us. Sometimes we don’t appreciate the paths where we have to walk, but we know He is the one guiding us if we are in Christ.

This is something we need to pass on to the next generation.

How encouraging is that?

*****

We have thought on your steadfast love, O God,
    in the midst of your temple.
As your name, O God,
    so your praise reaches to the ends of the earth.
Your right hand is filled with righteousness.
    Let Mount Zion be glad!
Let the daughters of Judah rejoice
    because of your judgments!

Walk about Zion, go around her,
    number her towers,
consider well her ramparts,
    go through her citadels,
that you may tell the next generation
   that this is God,
our God forever and ever.
    He will guide us beyond death.

 Psalm 48:9-14
