Gifts from God

The past five years have been gifts from God. When the breast cancer metastasized to my spine in 1997, I knew my life on earth was temporary. Only God knew the number of years and His timing is perfect. So I put my trust in Him and He gave me these last days to see His wonderful plan being worked out in the lives of those I love.

I have been blessed to see all three of my grand babies come into this world and to get to know each of them as unique individuals created by God. I wish I could be around as they grow to celebrate their successes and special occasions with them, but I am comforted and assured to know these gifts from God are being raised in a Christian home.

The greatest gift from God has been witnessing my son, Randall, return to a believing faith in Jesus Christ after twenty years of questioning, agnosticism, and even atheism. As a believing mother, my fervent prayer over the years was that my son would become a “great man of God,” but I saw no signs of this until Mother’s Day, 2000, when he sat beside me in church and sang the hymns, listened to the sermon with an open heart, and took communion.

Choreography…

Who knows how God works, but His Holy Spirit is like a choreographer “working everything for good for those who love Him and have been called according to His purpose.”

I agree with Paul in Romans 8, “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For we are saved by hope. But hope that is seen is not hope; for what a man sees, why does he yet hope for? But if we hope for that which we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.”

I am waiting with patience for a new healthy body, whether it be here on earth or in heaven with Jesus. Do you have that same hope?
