“Dad, Gramps, Love, you have told us that before”…

Are you like me in that repeating myself is becoming more and more common? The older I get the more it unnerves me. Every silly typo on WhatsApp, every name I forget or get wrong is a concern for me. I often make a joke of it to try and hide my frustration. Should I just keep quiet and not tell stories (me keep quiet??), not call people by their name? I have been to a Doctor who assures me that it’s not the start of Alzheimer’s or dementia. Can they be sure? If it is Alzheimers would I like to know?  Probably not.

Isn’t that true of the future? Tomorrow does not belong to us. All we have is the present, a very special gift from God and trust that God will guide us. Yet I often allow fear and anxiety to cloud my thinking and challenge my outlook.  

While pondering the above this morning I played my CD of worship songs and God, through the words of “Oceans”, came to my rescue again. The words that hit home to me were: “Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me, You’ve never failed and You won’t start now”. And then I just imagined the peace that will abound when: “My soul will rest in Your embrace, for I am Yours and You are mine”.

Let’s pray: Father thank You for answering unasked prayers, oh how I love You. Please help me not to be fearful of the future despite its great unknowns, for You are always there. Amen

God Bless and take care ~ Lyn & Colin
