Dear Sister Joy,
Thank you again for posting this exhortation and the others.
Just when I am most down, a sister will type something that will show me that The LORD has not been deaf to our pain, whether it be physical or otherwise.
Thank you and may I leave something that a very dear sister wrote to me, just when I was at my worst in sadness .... as in last nite and then still when waking thia morning ... her timing was HIM.
""Lord, help me to glorify Thee;
I am poor, help me to glorify Thee by contentment;
I am sick, help me to give Thee honor by patience;
I have talents, help me to extol Thee by spending them for Thee;
I have time, Lord, help me to redeem it, that I may serve thee;
I have a heart to feel, Lord, let that heart feel no love but Thine, and glow with no flame but affection for Thee;
I have a head to think, Lord, help me to think of Thee and for Thee; Thou hast put me in this world for something, Lord, show me what that is, and help me to work out my life-purpose: I cannot do much, but as the widow put in her two mites, which were all her living, so, Lord, I cast my time and eternity too into Thy treasury; I am all Thine; take me, and enable me to glorify Thee now, in all that I say, in all that I do, and with all that I have."
LORD, help us to grow and be conformed to YOUR Image.
Bless you sister - with all of my heart.
LOVE and see you 'Then'.
