Trusting Jesus... (+ a link to: Looking to Jesus...)

In yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I wrote about how it wasn't fun being hooked up to the drainage tube, plus the intravenous tube, the bag of super-antibiotic fluid, and the pump that I have to wear around my waist at all times, except when I sleep or have a shower.

By now, I'm sure you're aware that in addition to writing a daily entry, I have been writing a second (2nd) entry.  This subsequent entry, is meant to fill in the time gap and information regarding my hospital stay.  The entry I wrote and posted today is dated May 19th, and is entitled, Looking to Jesus...  Here is a LINK, to make it easy for you to access it, to read.

While hospitalized, God made a way where there didn't seem to be one.  I mean this in reference to the fact that normally, a hospital stay can be rather boring.  But, I didn't really find myself bored often, or for very long.  For this, I thank You, Lord.

Coming home was a slightly different story.

Of course, my routine is different, not being in hospital.  I have more freedom to do things as I would like to. 

Even so, I find myself busy throughout the majority of time I have on my hands.

Being home, means I must provide for myself.  Not just making meals, either.  I also need to take time to tidy up the kitchen, bathroom and my bed.

After all, someone has to do it, and there's no one here, but me!

In addition, I am able to read my favourite blogs.  And, spend time on Facebook (FB), posting items, and chatting with friends.

Of course, quite a bit of time is taken up writing LwL entries, daily.  Especially, since I'm writing and posting not just one (1), but two (2) and will be, until I've caught up on writing about my daily activities and issues while being a patient in hospital for those 15 days, that I was there.

How grateful I am that God provides for all my needs.  How grateful I am that I realize I need to look to Him for all things in my life.

Just as He told us in Hebrews 12:2, "Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God."

Yes, Jesus is the author and finisher of my faith.  The joy I receive from loving Him, and by following Him, is difficult to explain to anyone who is not a believer.

If you do not yet know Jesus, as your Lord and Saviour, I would suggest you read the Bible.  Begin in the New Testament, in the book of John.  Then, read to the end of Revelation.

I will pray for you.  After all, faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. 

May you trust in Jesus, for He is the Way, the Truth and the Life.  No one comes to the Father, but by Him. 

And, His arms are open, waiting for you.


Until next time...
