A few days ago, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I wrote about having trouble with my laptop computer. And how the screen died out.
It was rather frustrating to have this happen. Before sleeping that night, I prayed that I wouldn't have to take it to be repaired on Monday, as I planned to do.
Monday morning, I turned it on and it booted up. No problem! For this I praised God. Especially since I was able to use it, all throughout the day!
I truly thought God had healed my computer. But, I found out Tuesday morning, that it wasn't the case.
Once again, I had problems with it. Not only was my curser jumping all over, but the screen died, once again.
Knowing that I am feeling a bit stronger, and knowing that I had a call from a past client, I decided that I shouldn't turn away the business. After all, I literally haven't been able to work for months, except for some minor work that didn't drain me physically.
Still, I must admit I felt somewhat frustrated. Not just due to my computer troubles, but also some other life issues, and of course, my health restrictions.
There are times when I grow weary from suffering and feel frustrated. It's at times like this, when I review His word in my mind, searching for Bible verses that provide support and encouagement to me.
I thought about Romans 8:18, "For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us."
Once again, I must admit that I am truly thankful for God's Word.
He tells us how much He loves us. And what He expects of us.
In addition, He also has assured us that the sufferings we live with in our lifetimes, are nothing in comparison to what we will experience, later in eternity, with Him. And, He has assured us that glory shall be revealed in us.
What more could we ask for? He has assured us that we do not need to worry. Or, fear.
I praise God for this and for the encouragement He gives us. After all, He is in control. Of everything!
Until next time...
