God is Still Glorious!


2015 has definitely felt like a year I would like to take a break from. What promised to be a life-changing knee replacement surgery turned into a different life experience when an anesthesia reaction and some mistakes in my care resulted in two huge sores on my feet which took 10 months to heal. Then, when I was able to walk again, a bone spur resulted in another surgery leaving me off of my feet for almost a year in total.

My plans for this year have been altered, to say the least.

Yet I can take pleasure in the fact that I have a home, a wonderful family, I was able to travel and I was able to minister to others. What more can one individual ask for? Yet, my flesh does. I am sure I was a complaint-free delight for my wife to live with the last couple of years…I am sure I didn’t give a good enough effort for others at times. I am sure I felt sorry for myself, wondering why I had it tougher than others around me.

But the one thing I am most thankful for; through all of 2015 God was still God! He was consistent, dependable and trustworthy. I had my good days and bad; down days and up; happy days and gripy ones. He didn’t. Like a good pilot, He guided me through the turbulence that was my life this year, taking me closer to my final destination. It helps me to truly understand the Scripture,

Romans 8:28
28  And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

He has given us the ability to choose a path. Since the beginning, the world has chosen the wrong one and we live with the consequences of a sin filled world. Yet, should we accept His free gift of life eternal with Him in Christ, He will guide us through this world and in the process use us to help others to receive this gift.

My rest will come; someday I will have healing! But for now, I have work to do, for the good of Him who calls me! So I will add my latest battle scar to the rest of them and continue on, stronger than I was in 2014…
