It is amazing how music sets the tone of the heart!
Listening to Josh Groban’s “You Raise Me Up” and it takes my memories back to when my journey with cancer, chemo and radiation, the surgeries, the divorce, when all that took place and then reminding me where my focus should be. To not allow the enemy to take my mind back to those times but to see where he has brought me in the midst of it!
Easy to say, hard to do, but do we must. When we have done all we know to do, then we need to let go, yeild to the Father, yeild to the Holy Spirit and to walk in the new life that we have been given by Yeshua, who died and arose that we might live when we accept Him. How simple and real is that, not complicated, not at all, that you dont need to be a theologian!
That we now live in Him. The life I live, we live, is in Him, we have been redeemed and brought back into a relationship with our Father, the greatest gift ever given.
So I rest this day, knowing that the Father’s plans, what He has begun, how He has used these last twelve years when my journey began, will ultimately be fulfilled as a father, grandfather, brother, friend, a writer, will be accomplished, because He who began this work, has been with me every step of the way. He will finish and I will be part of the story that He is writing now and that gives me hope!
So a new day has begun, with hope within, knowing that it at times may be a flicker, yet hope it still is, because it is the Father who breathes life, that kindles the flame within, that it might shine forth and draw others to want to know, what it is that gives us Hope! That even in times like this, we are with hope, always!!
