Continually...

As I wrote in yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, my plan was to go to Bible study and worship with my church family.

Unfortunately, it didn't happen. 

Not because I changed my mind.  For, I didn't.

I didn't fulfill my heart's desire, because our weather turned terrible.

A few days ago, we heard we would be hit by a severe storm.  But, we weren't.  For some reason, it passed us by.

Then, on Saturday, I heard that we were going to receive up to 35 cm (13.78 inches) of snow.

When I went to bed Saturday evening, it wasn't snowing.  And, I hoped that this storm would pass us by, just as the last few had.  But, it didn't.

Even as I am writing this LwL entry, on Sunday evening, snow is still happening, and blowing around, here in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

As I discussed with a friend today, I'm glad I do not have to do any shovelling of the snow.  After all, with still healing slowly after having that extremely dangerous and severe surgery last spring, I can't even lift a bag of milk, yet (for people from other places, they are about a gallon). 

So, how would I have been able to do it, physically?  The truth is, I wouldn't have been able to do it.

But, God has provided for me, in a very different way.

By living in a high-rise apartment building, I am not having to do that type of physical work.  And, for this, I praise God!

Thinking about this, brought to mind Psalm 34:1, "I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth."

The truth is, no matter what would have been expected of me, God would have made a way for me to have accomplished whatever it was that might have been needed. 

And, I would have praised Him.  Over and over, again.  Just for providing for me, and protecting me.

No matter what happens in our lives, He provides always for those who belong to Him.

For this, I will always be thankful.  And, will always praise Him!

Hallelujah!


Until next time...
