Keeping Our Eyes on Him

A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root...(Matt. 13:3-9 NIV)

Sometimes my path seems full of rocks, but the roots I've sent down deep will keep me from withering.

After Ted's cancer treatment in September, it should have been complete. But his white cells are increasing and his energy is decreasing again. He will have a CT scan tomorrow to help determine what's going on. As I watch my weary husband, I call out to my God who is my Hope.

I remember all He has already done for us. Abiding is walking in step with Him, knowing He's in control and is orchestrating what is best. Our part is waiting, trusting and keeping our eyes on Him, not on the rocks in the road.

Thank you, God, for growing our faith, making it real, for being with us every step of the way.
