I Cannot Comfort

LOL...The Good Lord has just dumped a foot of snow on us and there is rain to follow...oi! I am so moving somewhere warm...no, seriously...it was a beautiful snowfall; however, driving through 6 inches of slushy snow for 4 hours was not so nice. It gave me time to think though - 1) about how to stay on the road amidst depth-perception challenged individuals who seem to think a two lane highway has magically become a single lane...all for them! and 2) about a new friend who is having a very difficult time right now.

I can't and won't go into details except to say that it frustrates me when I cannot bring answers and comfort to someone who needs and longs for them. All I can do is pray. Which is the best and most powerful thing I could do, but when I can't see God at work, I find it easy to become arrogant towards the Lord and I want to contrive solutions of my own and set off to implement them...and in case you haven't guessed it...my solutions usually (okay...always) cause more problems.

So, while I was driving today, I decided to put myself in check and let the Lord do His thing.(...lol it has only taken near 40 years...) Anyhow, I am confident that God will make a way for all things to come together for His Glory...and oh...what a day that will be! There is always Hope...His name is Jesus!

Isaiah 51:12 "I, even I, am he who comforts you. Who are you that you fear mortal men, the sons of men, who are but grass,
Isaiah 51:11-13 (in Context) Isaiah 51 (Whole Chapter)

We should do one of those house-swapping things. I'll come enjoy your snow, and you can enjoy the Texas weather! It was in the 30's last night, but supposed to be in the high 60's today.

No snow.

Beautiful picture in your latest post - of the tree. And beautiful post, too.

I would seriously consider this,I have been trying to get to Texas for the past 5 years! And every time I have an opportunity, something hinders it! I would like to come down and check out Texas ...I have a job offer at the Seton hospital should I choose; however, I am waiting on the Lord to open all the doors and make a way, should it be His plan for me:)
BTW, last night the temperature was minus 22 Celsius...the moon was lovely to view upon though;)

They Did Not Realize

Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus. ~John 21:4
