So yesterday was a very hard day, and I find that I now need to take some time for some long overdue self-care. Lord willing, I will be back online soon, so thanks in advance for understanding. During this time, I will not be checking this blog, but look forward to resuming sometime in the not-so-distant future.

Truly, even in our pain, we must cling to the truth that we know, and that is where this familiar verse from Isaiah 41 comes in for me. After all, I cannot even pretend to understand His ways, but am trying to trust and patiently endure until the Lord’s (often bewildering) plan is fulfilled.

If there is a silver lining in all of this, it is that I now understand with greater certainty how many people care for, think of, and pray for me, and I am genuinely grateful. Thank you.

  1. 1 Cor 1.25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
    Because we know that God has no foolishness and no weakness, my understanding is this: We don’t understand God, and can’t figure why He would do such and such, or allow such and such. It seems foolish or weak in our eyes.
    Then in v 27: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty.
    God does what He does to teach us His ways, His wisdom, in His love.

      1. What my comment is about is,

        I remember being miserable in my many jobs I had since my layoff, and I voiced how hard of a time I was having in the job world.
        But God always provides, and I am so thankful for His provision.

        Similarly, I recall your writing about your aspirations in your career quest, and I have prayed for you in that matter.

        So what I’m asking you is, how are you doing in your career pursuit? Is it going okay for you?

    1. Thank you, Frances! I truly appreciate you. 🧡

      You sent me a video a couple of months ago, but I’m not remembering if it was from Isaiah or not. I just did a quick scan to my inbox and didn’t see it, so I will send you a message privately as requested. Thanks again! ✝️
