Our health gives out on us. It is a part of being human. As we age different parts of our bodies begin to fail us and we suffer with aches and pains. As well, sometimes our spirit may fail us. We encounter situations in which our resolve to overcome grows weak. Sometimes our minds fail us and we find it harder and harder to remember things or figure them out. It’s just the way life is; we are all subject to it.
But, the good news is that God does not change. He is the same as He always has been. The same God who created all things by the power of His word, is the God whom we serve today. He can be depended on to be able to help us no matter how weak we may become or feel. The Lord will never grow weak or weary.
The Lord strengthens the heart of those who trust in Him. He forever will be ours when we trust in Him. We cannot trust our bodies, minds or our willpower to always be there for us, but we can always count on the Lord if we trust in Him. And the wonderful truth is, even if we utterly are unable to think or know anymore, if He is our God now He will be our God then. He never forsakes those who love and serve Him, even when they lose their ability to even comprehend Him anymore.
The Lord is our strength, both now and forever.
About the Author:
Spending his formative years in Ft. Wayne, IN, Jim followed the love of his life to southeast Iowa where they married and have spent the majority of their lives. Jim has pastored several churches throughout his life and has worked many years in local factories to help support his family. The father of two married adult children and one son still at home, Jim is a first-time author.
C Through Marriage came into being through many years of pastoral and life experiences. The book first took on a life of its own over 20 years ago when I sought to address the much publicized moral failures of prominent leaders in the church. In the chapter on Chasity, I include the guideliness that I developed then to protect one’s self from such failures.
I am a firm believer in order to make sense out of life you have to use much common sense. We need to get back to the basics of what has worked for many, many generations. If is isn’t broke, why try to fix it? I strive to return to the basics of what really works in all my writings.
