The Lord Is My Strength

The Lord is my shieldI am to happy to write about my life in the Lord tho sometimes things are not perfect. He never promised us perfect. My husband has been in the hospital since right after thanksgiving.   He is fighting many battles with his health and this battle was really frightening.  We were moved from one hospital to another, and this was all very scary to me.  I cried out to the Lord for help as I followed the ambulance to the new location.  Then after being there for about 3 weeks he was moved once again from ICU to a regular room.  Again I was frightened about the change and cried unto the Lord.  The new room had a big window with some nice old tree’s and a lovely snowscape. I saw movement and watched very carefully and spotted a woodpecker enjoying his breakfast.  It was early morning.  Joy filled my heart with the sight of the bird.  Then a moment later I spotted another of the same bird.  Again joy surged through me.  I of course had my camera and was able to take some photo’s from the window. The Lord knows how to turn my fear and sadness into joy.  I love nature, and looking thru the lens.  I shared with the nurses that were getting Jerry settled into his new room and everyone was looking out this window with excitement.  A squirrel even appeared in the tree.  The Lord spoke to me through those birds and my fear turned to joy.  The Lord speaks to us all the time in so many ways.  More often than not we miss his voice because we are so busy crying or complaining.  Our time at this hospital was wonderful.  Now we have moved on to yet another place. A place called Power Back. He needs his power back for sure, and I think this could be the place for it. The Lord knows our needs and answers before we even utter the prayer. I was helped thank you Lord.  The birds I saw were Northern Flickers.  A type of woodpecker.

My desire is to share my photography, to honor the Lord, and send out His word to all who might read. My photo's will include a scripture,and I write a devotional for each entry. The very least that I can do for our precious Lord Jesus. I am a wife to Jerry, my wonderful husband. We have 5 children, and 7 granchildren.

  1. Oh, Darlene,

    Our LORD is your strength! May He return Jerry’s physical strength as He shows Himself to both of you.
