Disease or sickness can be a catalyst that leads to depression, and despair or even loss of hope. The realization that opportunities have slipped by, never to return and doors have closed never to open again, can lead to fear, and guilt or shame. But what we less often focus on is that while this is true, new chances and never before openned doors are now there for the choosing. In truth, we are never left without hope and good things to look forward to. The Bible tells us that all things work together for good to those who are called according to His purpose. God has a purpose for every one of His children and He has put good things ahead waiting to be discovered like hidden treasure. Jeremiah tells us that He has plans to prospers us.
Jeremiah 33:2 says: Call to Me, and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know."
I snuggle down into your warmth and love. You are like the mother hen who gathers her chicks together under her wings when danger is near. Your tender mercies truly are new each day. With joy by faith, today I receive all that You have freely given me. And I will not entertain the lies of the enemy which lead to darkness and loss of light.
