To God Be the Glory

The times we go through trials give us opportunity to glorify God. My husband and I both are seeing more medical personnel than we have in the past. It may continue.

My husband prayed for a doctor, with permission, not for wisdom or strength or steadiness of hand, but for blessing on him and his family. He thanked God for helping the doctor to learn and for the perseverance that kept him on course to assist others in their healing.

My husband repeated variations of that prayer for nurses, aids, other doctors, housekeeping staff, you name it. I began praying for some of my providers, as well, from his example.

He determined in his heart to treat others as he thought Jesus would behave. He reminds me of Jesus’ parable about the farmer planting seed. He hopes it will be good seed because he cares about people.

He also told me that I was the primary person he should be Christ-like towards. I am humbled to be his wife. He’s not perfect and neither am I, but I thank God for him in these golden years of our lives.

Our family, our church family, our friends have showered us with encouragement, help, meals, visits, cards—we can’t thank them enough!

Additionally, we’re aware that “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variableness, neither shadow of turning,” (James 1:17, KJV).

I’ve seen so many answers to prayer over the years. If ever I’m tempted to doubt, I remember God’s promises that He’s fulfilled from His Word, that I didn’t deserve.

Praise God! May God bless you!
