Dear friend, …….
So I began this Monday morning spending time with Jesus and the Bible feeling I would finally be able to come up for some air! Two-week anniversary of my ex-husband’s death, spiritual warfare almost relentless, exhaustion from being on the road for the Lord, ongoing personal decades-long challenges and battle, a call this weekend to an old friend to tell her about my ex-husband only to find out she had committed suicide, and two big losses in New York City concerning something I had loved and counted on. Just a bit of rest please, Lord? Not so!
12-year-old paralyzed Mr. Simeon woke up with a big fever, listless, and other symptoms. Had to rush to get diapers changed on him and paralyzed Miss Mercy, rush out to get the other two handicapped dogs walked, figure out how to get 2 paralyzed dogs and wheelchairs in a cab, only to discover my building would in minutes fill up with tons of firemen looking for a possible gas leak someone had called in. Trying to figure out whether to rush the dogs to the vet or wait and see if the dogs in the apartment would be okay. Gas leak was ruled out & off we went. Found a cab by God’s grace alone. Off to the vet.
My third doggy emergency in two weeks, and thank the Lord waiting for test results but so far Mr. Simeon seems to be okay.
Last two emergencies were about $500 total, this emergency was just under $500, winter dog coats for all 4 doggies will total about $400, ongoing BIG ministry costs, and now without the test results so far I’m told he already needs multiple visits and special medicines for one of his known problems. More bills!
By God’s grace alone, I gave Gospel tracts to a fireman, the gas company checking for a leak, the people in the vet waiting room, the desk staff who took about 20 of them and gave some out to staff. Then we walked back to the apartment where we stay until our next location & had numerous opportunities on the way to pass out tracts. Oh, did I mention several cabs for us wouldn’t stop. Then Jesus sent a cab who loves the Lord and shared verses with me along the way. He got a tract also!
Believe it or not, this morning before it all began I did lots of writing including starting a piece on how the best way to go through a day is to give it to the Lord and to let Him order our steps. To trust in Him and let Him lead the way. He sure did today!
Exhausted? I’m too tired to even know! Thankful? Oh, yes! I believe the Lord tested my faith today. I put my trust in Him and because of Him passed the test.
Friend, I sure could use prayers! I sure could use encouragement! I sure could use DONATIONS FOR THE DOGGIES & for the ministry as a whole! The Lord keeps growing and growing this ministry, and I would LOVE loads of ongoing prayers & lots more people who are led to give and help me move forward in my calling to help people to find and forever follow the Lord Jesus Christ!
