Rainy Day Roses

Rainy Day Rose

We can grow

We can learn

We can make progress forward

This is my first post in quite awhile. No, I haven’t been ill with Covid. I have been busy and so tired, it has been so difficult to put one foot in front of the other. I am so grateful to the Lord for his patience and being so close at hand through it all.

I have learnt first hand the truth of those words of Paul the Apostle in 2 Corinthians 12.9… the power (strength) of the Lord Jesus is made perfect in weakness.

We can still grow …. in grace, in courage, in faith.

We can still learn …. first hand, that the Lord never leaves us or forsakes us.

We can make progress forward … even if we cannot take a step from the house.

Little by little will get us there.

Oh most, wonderful,

Most patient and loving God,

Your love refreshing as rain on sad, dusty roses,

Restores, refreshes and fills us with new purpose…

Because…

In our weaknesses…

It is your arm which holds and supports.

Thank you for holding us up when our own strength will not,

Truly, your compassion and mercies will never fail us,

Amen

Jean

Now stepping forward …
