God’s Shoulders are Big Enough for All of Us

 

Some of you may be wondering why I haven’t been commenting on your Messages as often as I usually do and that I have also not Posted except for the two Re-blogs by Bill and Peter, both of these Christian Men have a great focus, I’m sure you would have been blessed like we were by their Messages, Thank you to those who let them know they are appreciated.

I would like to share now why I’m limited temporally in my Blogging and also share about something very disturbing that happened to me recently but as hard as it was to endure, it does indeed show God is with us through all the Storms that life brings. Perhaps it would not have been so frightening for me if  Ron had been here but he is staying with his Daughter, thank you for those who are continuing to pray for him, apart from extreme tiredness he is managing OK on the Chemo.

I woke up in the middle of the night last week in acute pain in my left thigh and leg, I have a pinched nerve from an accident on my Scooter, they injected a Steroid into my Spine a few days before which can take up to a week to work so I had some pain when walking  but not like this, the pain started in my right leg too, I was scared, the front door was locked and I had forgotten to put my Mobil close to the bed. I was screaming in pain but no one heard me, it was 2.30am in the Morning.

I slid down onto the floor after praying and using some of God’s Balm (see link below) I tried stretching out my legs but the pain prevented me and than I remembered I had some pain killers in the bedside chest, so I reached up and took one but I knew from taking them before that it would take at least half an hour to be affective. I was in extreme pain but yes I was still praying, I put some more of God’s Balm on and amazingly the pain started to ease straight away and enough for me to crawl to a chair and pull myself up, I made my way slowly to the front door and opened it and than went into the Office and called an Ambulance, the Dogs were very frightened so I comforted them and waited, which was not long.

Ambulance 1The Ambulance Paramedics made sure the dogs were OK they  locked up the house and than took me to Caboolture Public Hospital, they were very efficient and caring woman and they showed an interest in me as a person and not just as part of their workload.

E ROOM

When we arrived at the Hospital, the Ward Assistant helped me get settled in a cubical in the Emergency Ward where I was to wait for the Doctor and as she did I was amazed and greatly comforted to see a painted Butterfly on the wall of the cubical, if you read my link below you will understand why this comforted me so much. The other cubicles which were mostly empty had different animals painted on their walls, I also had a little girl angel smelling a rose on the opposite wall. It seems they were short of beds and put me in the Children’s section. Once again I was overwhelmed by God’s Compassion and Love for us, I have no doubt He wanted to remind me He was there with me, as He has done more than once before and yes sometimes with Butterflies.

doctor9A Nurse came and took my details and blood pressure etc than the Doctor examined me, she was also very caring and attentive, and reassured me it was the Steroids and that the pain would  go when it settled  into my system. I noticed that everyone in the emergency ward worked as a team, of course I would have preferred not to be there but I did feel I was in good hands.

Much Later as I was waiting outside in the Hospital Taxi area for Ron to pick me up, one of the Nurses brought me a cup of coffee and than one of the Security men came and asked if I was OK and talked for awhile, they were all  very caring. Some people complain about Public Hospitals but I’m very blessed to know I will be looked after and treated as a person of worth when it’s needed for me to go there.

But as they say it doesn’t rain it pours, my Computer crashed too during last week…

I’m using an old Laptop now, that cuts in and out, it’s very slow, so I’m sorry if it takes me awhile to respond to your Posts but I will once again seek to catch up over the next few days, I’m feeling much more rested now and thankful that God’s shoulders are there for all of His Redeemed Children.

ScripturesDeuteronomy 33:11b …..The beloved of the Lord shall dwell in safety by Him and the Lord shall cover him all the day long, and he shall dwell between His shoulders.(KJV)

Isaiah 43:1-3 – Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”

Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.

  4. Dear Anne,

    I hope you are doing better…I just wanted to let you know that I have been out for the past few weeks with very limited internet access and today I started to catch up. I like the fact that you single out the room with the butterflies I think that little things like that are God’s way of letting you know that he is in control. That we are always in his hands!

    Cheers,

    • So good to hear from you Caleb, I have missed you, I too am behind in Blogging, I had a Computer crash but have also been looking after two Teenage girls, I’m very tired but enjoyed doing so.

      Tonight Kasey a young girl whom I’m looking after again for a few Days, asked Jesus into her heart and so did Romaine , they both come to my Funday School too, please pray for them, we watched a Video about Jesus for Children which touched their hearts and mine but we have talked a lot about how much He Loves them and I have given them Picture Bibles, so Jesus has been drawing them to Him, how wonderful that they accepted His Love given Sacrificially and shown on the Cross.

      As the Link shows Caleb, you are right, Butterflies to me are a reminder that God is close by, they are not magic or do they have supernatural powers as some claim, their not spirits that have come to empower me and lead me to greater enlightenment, they are just a wonderful reminder that I’m not alone in times of hardship.

      Christian Love Always – Anne.

        • Beautiful imagery, thank you Caleb for sharing, yes we can indeed see God in His awesome Creation including in us, as a Doctor I’m sure this is no surprise to you, that is why Man/ Woman will be without excuse if they reject Him to death.

          Wonderfully God does know those who are His and not one of us will be lost, He will bring all those He knows as His Redeemed Children to know and understand His Truth by His good seeds planted in their hearts, even if they have been deceived by false Teachers.

            • Thank for your concern Patty, I’m feeling better physically but I’m very far behind again in responding to Posts, there were so many that impacted me and that I wanted to share my thoughts in response to and also follow up New followers but with looking after young Teenagers over the last few weeks there has not been much time left and even today I was going to use it to comment but I had unexpected visitors, yes I know one day at a time but they seem so short these days.

              You also give me a great deal of Joy Patty in your encouragement, I feel very blessed that you view me as your spiritual mentor. and the best counsel I can give you is to continue to seek Jesus as you do each day because it is Him who will lead you into all Truth, I just pass it on to others what He shares with me and so plant good seeds, perhaps God will use you to water them before His Harvest.

                      1 John 4:17-19 Herein is our Love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in Love; but perfect Love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in Love. We Love Him, because He first Loved us.

                      Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore Perfect, even as your Father which is in Heaven is Perfect.

        Anne, It is wonderful how God intertwines our lives. If I hadn’t followed God’s nudge to be a leader in Bible Study Fellowship, I would not have studied that passage to share that verse with you. God knew you would need that verse so He placed me in the right place at the right time to hear it and then in turn give it out to you. That is how our blessings overflow. It is a beautiful picture of God’s love for us! So glad to hear that you are doing better. May the view from God’s shoulders encourage you for today! 🙂

        I agree Anne that a life without Jesus ,is like a book with 2 covers and nothing inside , like a day when the sun never rises , like a night that never ends .
