Never Upended

“Throw your burden upon the LORD, and He will sustain you. He will never allow the godly to be upended.”‭‭ Psalms‬ ‭55:22‬ ‭NET
June was bliss and romance, a long beach trip and 30th anniversary celebration. My life slowed down with daily reading and naps. Our children all joined us on vacation and we made wonderful memories together.
July hit us all full in the face with a busy work load and kids going in “16 directions” -as my mom used to say. Mid month I survived a near head-on collision with 2 of our adult children… 
and David’s mysterious “pain” began.
Dr visits, fever and increasing sickness led us to the ER for a several day (?) hospital stay. Tests, scans and IV drips have led me to this day – this hour (8:19pm) – with my feet on this spot. Did it all just happen? Is there a point? I’ve said before: I live for the point! So what is the point?
God’s Word says: “For all of God’s promises have been fulfilled in Jesus with a resounding “Yes!” And through Him, our “Amen” (which means “Yes”) ascends to God for His Glory.”             2Cor. ‭1:20‬ ‭NLT‬‬
The point is Jesus -always Jesus! He has said Yes to me and I have said Yes to Him. He has ALL of God’s promises fulfilled in Him … which are now passed on to me for His Father’s Glory! In sickness and in health – in good times or bad, the objective remains the same –STAND FIRM FOR CHRIST.
It is God Who enables me…  He has commissioned me… He has identified me as His own! How?? By placing the Holy Spirit in my heart as the – first installment that guarantees EVERYTHING He has promised me.” 2 Corinthians‬ ‭1:21-22‬ ‭NLT‬‬
Amazing wonderful God is right here, right now with a: Yes, there’s a point to all this! It’s for My Glory and for your fulfillment in Jesus! Stand firm, dear one, you will not be upended ❤️
ForGlorySake! –Anna

  1. My sweet friend. I am praying for a full and quick recovery for David. May you continue to encourage yourself as King David did. Thank you for your attitude in the midst of trials. May the presence of the LORD overwhelm your entire family.
