My right shoulder is feeling better friends. I seem to be more slow and take more time to accomplish things. But I am grateful that the Lord always gives me the strength that I need to finish the things that I need to fulfill, day after day. Thank you for all of your sweet thoughts and prayers. My right shoulder still gets achy, time to time. But in all of this, I am still thankful that through the pain, this is nothing compared to the suffering Christ had to go through in order to save me and you. I am continuing to rest. I might visit your sites once in a while and might not leave a comment. Through your written words inspired by the Lord, I am being strengthened, being encouraged, being inspired, and being pushed to keep trusting in the One Who is our sole security. Glory be to God!
Being Christians do not mean we are going to be rid of suffering. Suffering happens to all because of sins. But to live our lives with Christ, following Christ, that sets our journeys apart. For we know whether we are suffering or not, we are living our lives with a purpose. We are not living our lives in vain. May our journeys point others to our "Savior Who suffered the most in order for us to live..."
"7But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. 8We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. 10We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. 11For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus' sake, so that his life may be revealed in our mortal body. 12So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you." - 2 Cor.4:7-12 [NIV]
