    BEND IN THE ROAD



    When we feel we have nothing left to give
    And we are sure that the song has ended,
    When our day seems over and the shadows fall
    And the darkness of night has descended,

    Where can we go to find the strength
    To valiantly keep on trying?
    Where can we find the hand that will dry
    The tears that the heart is crying?


    There's but one place to go and that is to God,
    And dropping all pretence and pride,
    We can pour out our problems without restraint
    And gain strength with Him at our side.

    And together we stand at life's cross roads
    And view what we think is the end,
    But God has a much bigger vision,
    And He tells us it's only a bend.


    For the road goes on and is smoother,
    And the pause in the song is a rest,
    And the part that's unsung and unfinished
    Is the sweetest and richest and best.

    So rest and relax and grow stronger
    Let go and let God share your load.
    Your work is not finished or ended
    You've just come to a bend in the road.

    Thanks. I kind of feel lost and hopeless now too.

    I know somehow God will get me through this....I just don't understand yet!

    On the way home this evening my husband for the second time said, "you're just not accepting Gods will. It's not my fault you are sick. You are the one who ran up the charge card. You have to pay it. You can't get it through your thick skull it must be Gods will you are sick. Just accept it and forget going to Drs! Don't expect me to pay your Dr bills!"

    At times like this when I am dealing with the pains to have the hubby turn on me like that is something I have a very hard time with. I feel so alone. I know God is there but for the first time I am questioning his wisdom. I don't want to think this is His will that I am suffering.

    Dear Bluebirder;

    Psalms 119:105 says "Your word is a lamp to my foot, and a light to my roadway." Shine the word on the dark path you are traveling. James 1:13 says "When under trial, let no one say,"I am being tried by God." For with evil things God cannot be tried nor does he himself try anyone."

    No one has the right to say God is trying you by evil things-if he does say that he is going against the word of God. How smart is that? "time and unforseen occurrence befall them all" Eccl 9:11

    Happy Paths to you,loonie

    Hubby needs your understanding. He is in emotional pain.
    Express how you feel that he has pains too. Not just emotional and doesn't want to burden you. He is experiencing a loss, of a dream, of what he wishes were true. He'll grieve. Hurting soo I know it's hard to focus when you are in pain Phys.& Emotional.
    I pray that you feel better. Love, Selma

    God always does have the greater vision- we feel our pain and see it as an End. God sees it as a "bend in the road"- Hmmmmm- Like a Tapestry in the Sky?...We look UP and see threads & mottled colors, and knots...but God looks down on it, and sees a Perfectly Beautiful Picture!
