Moments In Time

He Cares For You...

1 Peter 5:7, Amplified Bible (AMP) "Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties,all your worries, all your concerns;, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully."

God is Faithful!; I was asked (urged) to share one of my many; testimonies of His goodness in my "episodes" of life. I am retired, single, and have no direct income. Two and a half weeks ago my heating system went out. I called my son, and 2 other HVAC professionals to determine what I should do. Needless to say, everyone (including my son) advised me to replace the unit. It was a very expensive all-in-one system, which was installed before I purchased the home. They no longer made this style; therefore, I had to buy a furnace and a hot water heater; (the air conditioner will wait until later). WOW! Calculate that!!

My first thought was on how much I have to do this year. I just came back from a vacation out the country, my daughter's graduating in May, and I have a ton of miscellaneous "things" to do this year! But, God!; I happened to be fasting that week, and my spirit man quickly rose up to give God the Glory.; (1 Chr. 16:29) Why, with an expensive dilemma like this? Well, the second guy that came out refused to touch anything, however, he did show me where the wires had burnt out and the system's safety valve shut it down, because it kept trying to ignite! Well, what if that had mal-functioned, as well? I told my son, I cannot worry about the price, when you compare money to Life! ; My life, my granddaughter's (who sleeps in the room next to it), or what if the house exploded, or caught on fire? What difference is the money factor, if you're dead?; Praise God! He's yet teaching me, it's ALL small stuff!

I was without hot water and heat for almost a week (another life appreciation lesson), however, I was able to send for the money, and get it taken care of. There is nothing, or no-thing, that can happen in this life, that our Father cannot bring us through!; We may have a few "battle"; scars to remind us of how we got over, but we're here! Where there is life, there's hope! Let us share with others the love of God, His salvation for the lost, and His ever-extending grace upon our lives!

Let Us Pray:

Father, God; Help me to trust you in all things. Help me to not take the things of this world so seriously, to trust in you. I give you the cares of my life, in Jesus name, Amen!

Now - Go, and share His love with someone!!
