|The Joy of the Son light after the storm|
Still smiling, I turn back to the meat and veggies I am cutting for my hubby's dinner, humming as I place all the ingredients into the cooker. He will be late tonight, but I will keep it warming for him. I reset the heat and place the lid in place, setting the imer. I head to the living room
Settling myself in my favorite chair, I am content. I love this twilight time of the day, when my chores are behind me and I can relax. I boot up the computer, looking forward to what my friends have been up to on Facebook. Immediately, I see a friend and brother in Christ, Mike Warnke has begun a new blog Souls. (souls2016.blogspot,com. Check it out, and be blessed.) It was there I spotted the word "blogger". I began to feel excited. I wondered if it could possibly "be".
Let me explain. September 2013 was the last time I posted on my blog This Little Light of Mine. It was about that time my hubby and I began another battle with the powers of darkness. Our world was turned up-side-down for more than two years. It was only the love of God and the presence of the Holy Spirit that brought us safely through. We clung to Him, trying not to despair, but we weren't always successful. Yet, He didn't waver. His knew the end of the story, allowing us through His grace to grow in our trust and faith in Him.
Somewhere, along the way I lost my blog spot. I totally lost "Blogger". I tried many other avenues, seeking that road which would lead me to my calling. Of course, God had some work to do in me. But, I didn't really understand that along the way; I was simply distressed that I was unable to serve the Lord... thinking I had failed, that I had fallen short. Oh, for the gift of hind sight before the lesson.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes..
But you, LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high.
Today, there it was. "Blogger", possibly the treasure in the field, for me. I held my breath and clicked the link. That's when This Little Light of Mine lit the screen. Something I thought was lost forever, was not. It was under the protection of my loving Father, until the time was right. I yelped for joy! This is truly sunshine through the storm for me. How thankful I am, for the Lord has once again led me to what I love to do. In His timing. At his calling.
Welcome! I invite you once again to join me as I discover God light shining in my life.
The people who walk in darkness will see a great light. For those who live in a land of deep darkness, a light will shine.
