Oh give thanks unto the Lord; for He is good:
for his mercy endures for ever
When we bought the motorhome I decorated and furnished it by shopping from my stucco house. I removed the above plaque from the wall in our hallway and hung it on the wall in my bathroom in the motorhome. At the time I didn't realize the significance of the verse it displays based on Psalm 136:1 With God's hands beneath us we need not fear what lies before us.
As we have traveled in the coach now over 6 months I can not begin to tell you how often people have said to me, "Oh, you are living the dream!" Yes, we are living a dream and I do not for one minute want to take that blessing for granted but the truth be told? I have experienced more anxiety and stress living this dream than I care to admit to.
Because I am not normally a person given to anxiety and stress maybe this is taking a little more toll on me. It definitely has effected the quality of life I am experiencing and has in turn then effected my Precious Husband too.
Truth be told? I am meditating a lot on these facts:
- God's hands are beneath me and they are strong and trust worthy
- God's mercy is amazing
- God wants me to live one day at a time, moment by moment
- I can trust God for my outcome
Truth be told? God is patient with me! He is trying to teach me and I am a slow learner. Someone asked me, "Where is your faith (in God) Dorothy?" Truth be told? My faith is growing daily because I know that even though I may still appear anxious and stressed as I "live this dream" God is doing a work in me and HIS HANDS are underneath me every step of the way. I will trust Him and He will continue to be merciful and good to me.
Note to self:
Each morning and each evening when I brush my teeth, take some extra time and read the verse again:
With God's hands beneath us we need not fear what lies before us.
Love and Hugs,
