BLESSED IS HE THAT CONSIDERETH THE POOR: THE LORD WILL DELIVER HIM IN TIME OF TROUBLE. THE LORD WILL PRESERVE HIM, AND KEEP HIM ALIVE; AND HE SHALL BE BLESSED UPON THE EARTH: AND THOU WILT NOT DELIVER HIM UNTO THE WILL OF HIS ENEMIES. THE LORD WILL STRENGTHEN HIM UPON THE BED OF LANGUISHING: THOU WILT MAKE ALL HIS BED IN HIS SICKNESS," PSALM 41:1-3.
Watching my husband go through cancer and the treatments is the most difficult thing that I have ever experienced in my life. I want to make all things better, but it is impossible. Only God can accomplish that.
Day after day I look for encouragement that comes from friends and family. My friends and family do so much to make life easier for us at such a time as this. I know that God has them in our lives for this very purpose.
Day after day I yearn for my God to give me the assurance that my husband will be totally healed. He speaks to me through HIS Word (the Bible). Today the Lord encouraged me with the Bible verses written on the top of this article. My husband's blood counts at this time are very low (requiring blood transfusions), but the Lord "will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing" and "thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness." The best part of these verses is "The Lord will preserve him, and keep him alive." The Lord is in control of life and death and could choose to take my husband home to Heaven tonight. But for now HE encourages me by telling me through his Word that HE will keep him alive (at least for now) and he will comfort my husband by making his bed. Everything is okay for today. I must live one day at a time and not fear what tomorrow may bring.
