A Reason To Celebrate!!

I was looking back over my calendars (where I keep track of symptoms, my cycle, ect.) because I knew it was about a year ago that I got sick.

Sure enough, one year ago today is when I got sick. Looking back over the weeks and weeks that turned into months of extreme and profound weakness and depression (and countless other symptoms) I almost cannot believe that I am SO healed and we are heading off to some friend's cottage to kayak and play all day! Praise the Lord!

When I looked back and actually put the last year into weeks of feeling okay, weeks of barely functioning, and weeks of not at all functioning, I am shocked at how bad I really was. It seems so distant now, as I feel so good, so joyful, so full of life. I often times have to hold myself back, I think I scare people with my excitement and zeal. ;-)

I feel like I could bounce off the walls some days, there is so much energy, comparatively speaking. I will often just marvel at how 'normal' I feel on the inside. I really began to wonder if I would ever feel this happy again, ever. Don't get me wrong, I am still a very 'normal' human being with plenty of sin nature left to deal with, if you know what I mean.

Anyway, I just had to let you know that God is so faithful, no matter what the circumstances. No matter how hopeless everything might seem to you right now, all is not lost and He is still on the throne!

No sickness, no depression, no symptoms, no wayward child, no financial difficulty, no difficult marriage, no weariness, no lying devil, NOTHING is out of His reach and out of HIS control! Put your hope in Him. Anything else you put your hope in will fail you eventually, He never will!

Sing with me today!

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heav'nly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!

One more thing, below is one of my favorite songs right now that might just be an encouragement to you. Have a wonderful weekend. I am so thankful for all of you!
