I miss a few people but my mind is eased and the desire to have them close to me fades when I think about the fact that the three people were all followers of Christ and God fearing individuals. The first of the three is my aunt Volita whom we called Dita. I wrote her on day 15 of this 30 day blog challenge, significant childhood memories. The second of the three is my grandmother. I wish I would have spent more time with her before she passed away. I feel like in comparison to a lot of my other family members I didn’t have as close of a relationship with her and it makes me sad at times. Lastly I miss my great grandmother. I don’t remember her very well because she passed away while I was young but one thing I do miss is the unity she brought to my family. She solved every problem with God and made sure all of us were keeping up with the Lord. After she passed away all hell broke loose so to speak. The unity ceased, rivalries broke out and God became a bit of a distant memory.
Sometimes I find myself missing the days of innocent ignorance. The days when I didn’t know about all of the troubles of this world. The days when my most difficult decision was which flavor candy I wanted to by. Today when one looks at the condition of the world it is easy to conclude that all hope is lost haha. The government is corrupt, no matter who we vote for they are all in cahoots and have the same motives. Schools have an agenda and that agenda is to poison the minds, confuse and mislead the youth under the guise of fairness, equality and truth. But if one pays attention it is easy to see the deception and that these people are all wolves in sheeps clothing. Knowing all of this worries me at times because I fear for my children and grandchildren.
But there is one thing greater than the pain the I experience when I find myself missing my loved ones. There is some one greater than all of the anxiety I get when thinking about the future of my descendants. There is one thing covering myself and my family that will not allow the duplicity of Satan to trap us within his web of confusion, lies and sin.
God is greater! Great enough to part the red sea, calm a storm and walk on raging waters. Great enough to heal the sick give sight to the blind and drive out demons. Great enough to form the universe with nothing but his words. Greater than the pain I feel when I’m hurting and the fear that overwhelms me when I worry. Greater than the the stronghold that this world has over my family. God is greater than the possibility of a negative outcome. When my chances of succeeding are slim to none God is the variable that catapults me beyond prosperity. Jesus provides peace when chaos ensues and a way when the world minimizes my options.
With confidence I look forward to the future knowing that myself and my family are all in the hands of our wonderful creator! God has the world in His hands, my relatives in His presence and my future under His provision.
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand” (Isaiah 41:10)
