Welcome...(# 10)

to TUESDAYS TOGETHER (in the WORD). I am so glad that you have joined us.


Remember our goal/purpose is that we are reading God's Word and we are sharing with each other a "nugget" of what we are learning.


This week our reading (posted on the side bar) was from Psalms 13- 15, and Acts 23- 28.


I want to focus on this passage:


"But I have trusted in Your steadfast love;
my heart shall rejoice in Your salvation."


Psalms 13:5


Years ago while going through a very tough time in ministry, I read the book, "God Works the Night Shift" by Ron Mehl. The Lord used it greatly in my life at that time, and I have been reminded of it again... this time - not ministry related. This time it is personal.


So, I say with the Psalmist... BUT I have - I AM trusting in Your steadfast love. Even when it is dark. Even when I can't see the reason. This walk this week with my mom is a road that we have not traveled. But I trust Him. Even when I can't see Him. I am also reminded of an old song - "When You Can't Trace His Hand... Trust His Heart."


I am trusting in His Steadfast Love....


Also, I thank you for the love and support that we have received. I agree with a post that my daughter wrote last week. She worded it so well. You can read the whole post here. But I want to say a special thank you to those of you have been there for us. You will never know how much it means when you reach out to us in times like these. We will forever be grateful for people that God puts in our lives who are not afraid to get close to the Pastor/Wife/Family, and who will be there with and for us when we are hurting and have needs.


I am trusting in His Steadfast Love...


Now, your turn. Remember... leave a comment... share your thoughts... and if you blog - link with us.

Isn't it ironic that some of the sweetest fellowship with God is through the darkness where we have no where to look but to Him. How precious to know that He has it all written down, for Him there are no surprises. What an awsome, mighty, steadfast God we call Father. The Creator of all yet compassionate toward His children who He knows intricately the depths of each heart and mind. What a present help in time of need! Prayers & Hugs, Vicki

Trusting in His steadfast love, too, DeeDee. Thanks so much for hosting this. I'm so glad God laid this on your heart to do. I cannot tell you how much I have been blessed!

Still praying for you, sweet DeeDee...and trusting with you in His steadfast mercy and grace. He will carry you and your mama (He already is!). I'm so grateful you can rest in His arms and trust His faithfulness. Thank you for these Tuesdays Together. I so cherish them.

Blessings,
Kelly

Hey DeeDee
A great post, isn't it just amazing how wherever we are in our reading of God's Word, He speaks to us from the pages of His Holy Word just what we need to get us through what we are going through...

I continue to pray, please let me know what I can do to help you...

Blessings!

I am so truly thankful that God's word is living and breathing and jumps right out to us where we are, where we live, even during the dark and uglies. Especially during the dark and the uglies! I am praying! Please let me know if you need my nursing skills- I would consider it an honor to spend a night with "mamaw" if needed.
