I'm emotional tonight. I feel like this is a good emotional though. The hubby and I just spent an hour reading different passages in the bible together. We read from 2 Timothy, Psalms and Romans and then we had a powerful time of prayer together. Yah, that combination always makes me feel emotional, spiritually and mentally emotional in a good, raw, humbled kind of way.
My hubby has had an ongoing and lengthy battle with various physical and mental health issues. He has been going through the ringer for well over a year now. It's been a long, tough road for him and for me too in all honesty. Being sick for a week or two is hard enough on anyone but, for months, for years, well, it wears on a person and on a family. I am SO proud of my husband. He has a stronger walk with the Lord now than he has in a long time. He is determined to get through this and he keeps chugging along in spite of so much weighing him down. We have been together for over 11 years now and I am more in love with my husband now than I ever have been. I'm so grateful that in spite of what he is going through he isn't shutting me out. Quite the contrary he has leaned on me and confided in me every step of the way. I feel so blessed that our bond is deepening in spite of the enemies efforts to divide and destroy. I am SO thankful that we know the ONE who gives the peace that passes all understanding. A lot of people might not know how to endure a long season of hardship and stay in tact and strong but, the Lord is our strength. A lot of people might lose hope or lose heart, but the Lord is our rock and our foundation who holds us steady. A lot of people might become bitter or lash out but, the Lord has shown himself faithful and we trust Him and know He will see us through as He always has. The Lord is good. This has been a long, hard season, one of which many people who know us are not even really aware of because there really isn't much to say and why make people feel uncomfortable if you don't have to right. Not to mention we don't want people making assumptions or taking things out of context so we have hesitated to share, but we also believe in keeping it real and letting the Lord be glorified in and through us in and out of season! It's awkward to feel so vulnerable but, that just means that the Lord can do more refining. I'm here Lord. Teach me and lead me. Let my eyes be open and my heart be soft to receive what you are showing me in this season. I love you my Lord, my God. You are good God. You are so good to me.
37 "No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,a]">[a] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8: 37-39
