As high as I can reach!


My mom suffered a stroke last Thursday.  One of the first things I did, was to contact some friends for prayer.  One of them responded with this phrase….Lifting you as high as I can reach!!!  It made me overwhelmed by this precious response.  I brought my mom home to her apartment today.  She has recovered quicker than I hoped!  In the midst of a storm, God is faithful and good! I thought of a verse I learned many years ago,

John 16:33 (KJV)

In this world ye shall have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.

I don’t believe in adding anything to God’s Word, but I might add this to this verse…..and I am giving you lots of friends to pray for you whenever you get discouraged or afraid!!!!!

    I always know when you haven’t blogged in a while that something must be up! It’s a good way to know to be lifting you up, when I’m tempted be sad that there’s no new tidbit you’ve gleaned and desire to share. Glad that your mother is doing better! To God be the glory.
