Looking back, I have to smile now at the drama of that moment. Did I not realize I had the greatest resource a girl would ever need? The Lord has been with me every step of the way and helped us. The girls are raised and on their own now, and He still continues to be there - if I just open my eyes and look.
One of my favorite songs is the chorus "Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus." I love the line, "and the things of earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace."
No matter what you are facing, He has enough grace to get you through it, if you just turn to Him!
Have you ever had to make a conscious effort to turn from what things look like and gaze on the goodness of God?
5 Minute Friday is now hosted by Kate at the blog "heading home." This is meant to be a free write, which means: no editing, no over-thinking, no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation.
Also, the most important rule is that you visit the blog of the person who linked up before you and leave some encouragement. That’s the most fun of all, and the heart of this community.
Today's word is "turn."
