Nevertheless, the Lord definitely took care of me this past Sunday morning! Things could have been a lot worse. The Apostle Paul once told the Corinthians in his second New Testament letter (2 Corinthians 4:8-9)” “8We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.”
I can certainly relate to this. And I praise the Lord that I came through my accident without having been crushed, destroyed, or abandoned by the Lord. As it is, I do have quite a few bumps and bruises. But the Doctor seems to think these will all pass in due time. And I hope to be back in the pulpit very soon.
Thanks for all of you who have prayed for me during my accident, as well as the other individual involved. Thanks as well for the many cards, emails, calls, and texts. They have meant a lot.
I leave you with these words from the Apostle Paul (in Philippians 4:11-13): “…I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”
