A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance

 

       Today, I would have been married to my husband for 16 years. Over three years ago, he was killed in a motorcycle accident. The past few anniversaries have been rather rough. Today seemed a little easier. I used the day to reflect on the path my life has taken. It certainly has been an adventure. For those of you that know me, it sure has been a ride. Each obstacle on the journey, YHWH made a way to continue. I should have been killed after a beating in 2001, yet here I am today. None worse for the wear. It truly was and is miraculous how I have recovered.  Through many trials, beating, death, mourning He has been with me. Giving me the strength to carry on.  Bringing me together with friends, that I never would have met without Him. A family that is only a few miles away. A son that I am so very grateful for. And the Faith in Him that is beyond a gift. I could go on and on with the thankfulness I feel. With as many miles to go as He wills, I Know He is with me. Thank you Father for this Faith, Thank you for this time to reflect, Thank You for the path ahead, for I Know You are with me.

Psalm 91

91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 

91:2 I will say of YHWH, He is my refuge and my fortress: my Elohim; in him will I trust.

91:3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

91:4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

91:5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

91:6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

91:7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

91:8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

91:9 Because thou hast made YHWH, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

91:10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

91:11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

91:12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

91:13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

91:14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

91:15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

91:16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

Wonderful testimony Kathy. You show an example of keeping your focus on Him through the hard things and showing that no matter the roughness of the road, He will take you over every obstacle you can not pass on your own. All things work for the good of them who love Him. Thank you for posting.

       I wanted to share a special moment today with everyone. Today would have been my deceased husbands 36th birthday. I woke up with it being a hard day.  While getting ready for work it was hard to contain my sorrow. After I had arrived at work, while talking to several people in a similar situation, I wasn't able to hold the tears back any longer. After receiving a request for a "Supervisor Meeting", all I could figure is I was in trouble for something.  What a day this was going to be. Already in an upsetting mood,  I thought that meeting was going to be something else to be upset about. As the supervisor and I went in to a private room, it was becoming even more difficult to hold back those tears.  We sat down and I prepared.

       While talking to my boss, the meeting was to show me a raise of almost three dollars an hour in my pay. I was blown away. Speechless. No longer able to hold tears back, I told her what an amazing gift that was and why I was weeping. YHWH works in such amazing ways. All the praise belongs to Him. After feeling so alone and sad, He is Always there.
