Believing...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I tell you about important things... and unimportant things, also.

Today, I'll tell you that on Saturday, I went to visit the fellow who is in rehabilitation after having a stroke.  After crossing town, God immediately provided a parking spot for me.  Thank You, Lord!

Unfortunately, the gentleman wasn't up to having a visitor.  He was exhausted and could hardly stay awake.

I saw my daughter P for a few minutes, and did an errand, before heading to the library.

On Sunday morning, I went to worship.  Just as I usually do, on SONday mornings.

Once again, I went to worship at Walkerville Evangelical Baptist Church (WEBC).  Of course, if you've been reading LwL over the past few weeks, you'll know that I've worshipped with this group of fellow believers, several times.

And, you'll also know that it is where I went to watch the movie, Facing the Giants on Friday evening.

I felt truly blessed, being there today.  And, not just because they once again prayed for me and my health needs.  But, also because the sermon that my friend Tom Perry preached, was wonderful!

Afterwards, I met with some single friends at the Tim Horton's (TH) in Tecumseh, in the plaza at the corner of Tecumseh Rd. & Manning Rd.

It was nice meeting with those friends.  We enjoyed conversation, together.  And, I enjoyed a cup of French Vanilla Cappuccino!

Then, I headed to the library.  After I was finished doing my thing there, I headed home.

I need to tell you that I was happy that I had a rather busy weekend.  I thank the Lord, for this.

You see, every year it seems that no matter how hard I try, I just cannot seem to shake off the heartbreak of what happened to me over the years.

It was at 3:45 p.m. on September 30th, many years ago, when the tractor (cab) portion of a tractor-trailer hit the school bus I was driving.

I wrote a chapter about this in the book I wrote entitled, Love Never Fails You....  Feel free to click on the link to find out more.

This collision changed my life.  Totally.  And, brought oh so much trouble into my life.

Thinking about this, brought to mind John 14:1, "Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me."

Yes, my life changed.  And, even though it was many years ago, I've suffered greatly.

Even so, God used this horrible incident to change me.  And, mold me into the person He wanted me to become.

Just as He told us He would.  After all, He is the potter, and I am the clay.

I'm grateful that my Lord, Jesus Christ provides for me.  And, helps me through the trauma of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that pervades my mind, especially at this time of year.

Thank You, Lord.  Thank You, for loving me, so very much.  More than I ever dreamed possible. 

And, I thank You, for giving me, and my daughter P, a testimony to Your goodness.  And, for Your love towards us.

I will continue to trust in You, and believe that You will continue to lift me up and encourage me.  Always. 


Until next time...
