Earthly Treasures of the heart
As I have mentioned in my previous post ,our family is going through a difficult phase with my grandad being sick and hospitalised.This has taken much a toll on me.
My grandad has been more my father.He has carried me as a toddler for an entire night as I suffered through pneumonia.He has been my first encourager as I became the first working professional in my family.He helped me file taxes and do investments.He taught me how to talk to a manager and how to navigate through difficult work situations.I’ve always pictured him like the wall that protects me from the big bad world.He has been the wall I can lean on in difficult times and family crises.
God has been gracious enough to place this precious person to be a part of my life.
Our entire family is prepared and are ready to say “His will be done”.While I have to be honest ,I cannot come to utter those words.How we clutch with closed fists on to our earthly blessings which god has bestowed on us.
This brought on an old memory of my grandmas last words before she passed away.She told my mother “Trust not your husband, trust not your children,Trust only in god.He is the one unshakable unchanging factor in life”.”Yes my grandad has been a pillar in my life an ever steady component of my life,But above everything and every person,GOD NEEDS TO BE MY EVERYTHING”.
This has become my daily prayer for strength to trust and to lean on him with all my heart.I do not know what the future holds,I m a work still in progress in his mighty hands.
Luke 10:27 (NKJV)
27 So he answered and said, “ ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself.’”
“Your love never Fails,
Never runs dry,
Never runs Out on me.
I’m confident and covered By the power of Your great love”
