My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.  Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.  For they are life unto those that find them and health to all their flesh” [Proverbs 4:2022]

Life with all its twists and turns becomes an instrument, a channel or tool for the flow of God’s Goodness into our lives.  Through sunshine or rain, storm or serenity God is the same yesterday, today and forever.

When we first heard the word ‘cancer’ and Joe and I went to prayer I wept and immediately heard the voice of the Lord.  “Would you receive from my hand good and not trouble?”  [Job 2:10] How blessed we have been as individuals and as a family through all the preceding years.  We have received glorious blessings and untold miracles in the light of which  now upon hearing this Word of the Lord, I was able to receive peace in my spirit and trust in the One I had known and loved for a lifetime.

So many times through so many trials, the voice of the Lord and His presence has reigned supreme.  Where else could we go or who else could we listen to.  Through it all we have learned that only God has the words of life; words that reveal meaning and purpose for those that listen.  “… For they are life unto those that find them and health [medicine] to all their flesh”.  Only God is the solution to our questions in times of trouble.  He has the prescription for life!
