Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you. Isaiah 46:4

It’s been a while…

I have not posted for while. Life has been busy and I know I need to make posting a priority for me and hopefully someone else gets something out of it too.

Today was chemo round 4. I have been blessed as my body has been taking it well with mild side affects. I pray for those who are going through this as well that they may be sustained and rescued.

I have the verse above in a picture on my wall. With it, is a picture of a cowboy on a horse with a lantern and a calf in his arms. We run a cattle ranch. We are currently at the end of spring calving. It is amazing to experience the birth of a calf. We watch in amazement at the instincts and the nature of the process. For those unfamiliar, a good size calf is born weighing 60-80 lbs and can stand and walk within minutes following birth. We hope they are born strong and healthy and that they stay that way. But even the strong need a rescuer. Left to there own ways unattended they can become ill, lost, neglected, or abandoned.

I love this verse as it reminds me I will always be a child of God. He will always rescue me when I ask, when I seek him whole heartedly, heart and soul. There is a song and a verse that talks about how God hears us even when we don’t have the strength to mutter a sound. I will find it and write about it in an upcoming post.

At this time, my soul cries out for rescue and I know that even in the midst of the turmoil and evil of this world we are carried by our rescuer. Even when the world is against us and all seems wrong, I am still strong and I am still being carried to safety. Safety just isn’t in the place that I am and so I wait for the point at which I am finally carried to safety, carried safely in the arms of my rescuer.
