Hopefully, you aren't too confused about me posting Life with Lynnie (LwL) once again, here on blogspot.com.
As I've mentioned before, this site is my preferred choice. And, always has been. I just pray problems using the site won't happen, again!
Last night was one of those nights where I just couldn't sleep. Why this happens, I truly don't know.
Prayer doesn't seem to help. Nor, does thinking about Jesus. Or, thinking of the cross, as a friend suggested.
Once again, I found myself getting frustrated. So, up I got, again.
This time, I didn't watch a movie. I just watched Youtube videos and spent some time on Facebook (fb), before heading back to bed, a couple of hours, later.
Morning sure felt like it came early! That's probably because I didn't feel like I had enough sleep.
Even so, I got up when my alarm went off. Read the paper, and got ready to go out.
My daughter B picked me up. She, a friend of hers, T and my granddaughter were waiting for me at the van.
Off we went, to do a couple of errands I needed done. Of course, B and T also got some shopping done. Christmas shopping, that is!
Being Black Friday, I thought the stores we shopped at would be overrun with people. To my surprise, they weren't! I suppose this meant that the majority of those shopping today, must have gone across the border to USA, to shop.
Oh well, it made it good for us!
While in one store, I ran into a friend of my deceased husband Gordon's, B. They had worked together, for many years. For the first time, I met B's wife, M.
B told me that he is battling cancer. My heart almost stopped. We discussed his health, treatment and more.
Sad feelings overwhelmed me. I tried to not burst into tears. After all, I would prefer to be supportive and not negative, especially with B fighting this battle.
Just thinking about how we face battles in life, made me think about 2 Chronicles 20:15, "And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the Lord unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God's."
Of course, from a human perspective, letting go of the problem as serious as B is facing, isn't easy.
One of the reasons I was saddened wasn't just because of B's situation. After all, anyone who is a child of God, and who reads and understands their Bible, and who is truly trusting in the Lord, would know that the battle isn't ours. It's God's.
And, if they were saved, they would know where they were going, if their life ended sooner than they hoped.
For me, it is far more important that B obtain salvation, if he isn't already saved. Since God is not part of his life currently, only God knows if he is saved.
Still, prayer is important.
I let B and his wife know that I will pray for him... and them. If the spirit leads you, please join me in prayer. Thank you. May God bless you.
Until next time...
