The heavens are telling of the glory of God;
And the expanse [of heaven] is declaring the work of His hands.
Day after day pours forth speech,
And night after night reveals knowledge.
There is no speech, nor are there [spoken] words [from the stars];
Their voice is not heard.
Yet their voice [in quiet evidence] has gone out through all the earth,
Their words to the end of the world.
In them and in the heavens He has made a tent for the sun,
Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber;
It rejoices as a strong man to run his course (Psalms 19:1-5).
One of the toughest most gut-wrenching problems on this earth is when we feel that G_d has somehow abandoned us. At issue is that G_d does not come in “physical form” and if He did, we should be questioning that individual’s authenticity. When G_d presents Himself to us, it is always through His glory that is, “through the unmistakable way He guides our world and our life, or door that opens that we could not possibly have opened. three years ago, I told G_d, “I am ready for a change in my life” and He said He would open a door for me.” Three full years passed by, I faced constant battles with the only resolution being “I got the short end of the stick.” Then one day, I was offered “early retirement” and I almost turned it down but then rethought my decision. I retired on October 15th and started dialysis on October 19th. I received 100 disability status from the military and subsequent disability which more than made up for what I lost; this was a door that presented itself and all I had to do was “walk through” it. I always thought I would miss working in Information Technology but I don’t and I don’t miss work.
Thank you for all that you do in and through my life. I pray for my family, friends, dialysis team, law enforcement officers, EMT personnel, the city of Stacy, the State of MN, and my USA. I pray for those who are in need of a special touch from you, let this message be an encouragement to those in need.
