HIS HANDS ALSO HEAL

Finally Gunnar had some spare time to help me blog in to the site of my Pilgrim Pals.
I have been planning to write something nice about my father's family and how a great loss was turned into salvation for a whole family.
I'll do that sometime...
Today I am a bit down because Serina has not yet become the help or the medicines she needs.
When I'm really flattened I reach out for my Bible and pray God for a word to help me move one step further.
I don't know if it is right or wrong theology, but it works for me, has done so for all of my life.
Just 15 minutes ago I prayed and this what comforted me and gave me hope and force to go on.
Job 5:17-27


17 "Blessed is the man whom God corrects;
so do not despise the discipline of the Almighty.
18 For he wounds, but he also binds up;
he injures, but his hands also heal.
19 From six calamities he will rescue you;
in seven no harm will befall you.
20 In famine he will ransom you from death,
and in battle from the stroke of the sword.
21 You will be protected from the lash of the tongue,
and need not fear when destruction comes.
22 You will laugh at destruction and famine,
and need not fear the beasts of the earth.
23 For you will have a covenant with the stones of the field,
and the wild animals will be at peace with you.
24 You will know that your tent is secure;
you will take stock of your property and find nothing missing.
25 You will know that your children will be many,
and your descendants like the grass of the earth.
26 You will come to the grave in full vigor,
like sheaves gathered in season.
27 "We have examined this, and it is true.
So hear it and apply it to yourself."
Felisol On The Far Side Of The Sea is greeting you.

Great Post Felisol !!

thankyou Gunnar for helping her

and of course ITS RIGHT , FELISOL -- REACHING FOR HIS WORD WHEN YOUR "FLATTENED" --- good theology, good stuff
GOD KNOWS SERINA AND IS WATCHING HER -- if HE allows her some struggles, HE is forming, purging and making her HIS CHILD , we all have to go thru that -- REST IN HIM

Dear Felisol...This IS a great post!
You are not at all wrong reaching for your Bible and getting the word straight from the Lord that you need.
This is what happened to me when the Lord gave me Psalm 34 when I needed His comfort and His promises so desperately and when I read it to Mom Golden,SHE was comforted too!
For Serina, we are praying...Love Terry

Felisol, like Bob and Terry have both said it is absolutely the best correct theology out there! One cannot get any better than His Word to us. The comfort of the Word to our sore and aching hearts is like the Balm of Gilead being poured over us, seeping into every pore of our body, every fiber of our body, and then healing each of those hurting places which only God knows about.

(((Felisol))) And, yes! A big THANK YOU to that sweet hubby of yours for helping you get on Pals to post! Give him a hug from all of us! :D

Welcome, dear Mrs. Ljung! I am not supposed to be on here as I told everyone I would be too busy, but my guests are meeting a neighbor with my parents, so I have a few minutes to let you know I am praying for you and your family. You know, during my most difficult early teenage years, I would often escape to our basement bathroom where my dad left his Bible (where he read it every mrorning), and I would open it to wherever God has it to open to, and most often, it was just what I needed to read! Hold fast to His unchanging hand...He will help you through.

God bless you,
LPP
