I THOUGHT I KNEW…
BLESSED … happy and to be envied…are the HUMBLE
He gives more GRACE to the HUMBLE.
I thought I knew what I’d be doing at this age…but I was wrong.
I thought I knew what it meant to be BLESSED…to minister to people and know GOD’S TOUCH on it.
I thought I knew what it was like to experience God’s GRACE. I am forgiven and His Presence lives in me . I do not deserve any of that.
However, at my age, there is so much I’m learning that I thought I already knew.
Covid 19 has turned our world upside down. Our GET UP group of ladies were just beginning to transition from responding to God’s Word INSIDE the church to obeying it OUTSIDE the church. Then March 2020 happened. Yet God had promised we would do HIS WORK TOGETHER in 2020…even though some of it seemed a little too “ORDINARY”!
Would you like a glimpse into my world now ?
As a Nurse I am involved in a rescue mission. We are transferring vulnerable patients from a Toronto Hospital ( where beds are needed for those suffering with Covid) to a facility where we are working very hard to keep them virus free. We started with empty rooms…we definitely had NO TOILET PAPER !!!
We had no beds or linens or toiletries or medications or treatment supplies ! We now have a great team of Nurses , Doctors and Therapists. To date we have rescued 21 who remain negative for Covid!
I thought I knew what God’s Grace and Strength looked like. After all, I grew up in the ministry !
I know now HIS GRACE is in EVERY BREATH. It’s in EVERY STEP we take when we have no strength to take it. it’s in every DECISION we make when we have no WISDOM to guide others. It’s in the SLEEP God gives us to restore the cells of our bodies so we can GET UP and do it all again.
Forgive me for my ARROGANCE.
I thought I knew some things.
But because I know YOU more every day
I AM BLESSED BEYOND MY DREAMS !
THANK YOU !
