Thanks Iris for another great theme this week, sweet blessings to you. I want to always keep hope alive in me, because my hope comes from God, and I want everyone to know that. More importantly, I want everyone to know my God. When heartaches, and troubles come your way, and they will my friends, reach out to Him, He will take your troubles, and give you hope in return. He is the reason I have never given up, or ever will. I keep my eyes focused upon Him, not the world, my redemption draws near. I am sick so much of the time, but I refuse to let go of hope. I worry about my dear lovebug, he is such a wonderful man. But, every time I get sick, or I find out that I have another medical condition, he gets really upset. He always says, why you? It is not fair, you have enough problems, why is God doing this to you? I want Him to heal you, not give you more burdens to carry. I know lovebug loves me very much, and he worries about me. But, I want him to replace his negativity with hope. God is not punishing me, or overburdening me at all. My medical problems are not God's fault, He hates to see me suffer. He is my Physician that watches over me, and gives me daily strength to carry on. He never leaves my side, He holds my hand through everything I endure. God is my healer, in His time, if He chooses, He will heal me. If He never chooses to heal me, I am fine with that. There is a reason for everything that happens in this world, God knows what He is doing, and why. I am not the only one in the world with medical problems, so many precious ones suffer daily. My hearts prayer, is that instead of letting your problems take control of your life, allow God to control your life. Believe me, once you do, God will show you that there is no problem to big for Him to handle. I love You Lord, and I praise You for being my hope.
