If you have ever had your heart touched to reach out
to someone who is unable then you
understand great things happen when
you " stand in the gap "
This is our season of grace...
I remind myself whenever I meet
someone, each one of us hold our own story
and my heart reaches out with love.
When this new year rang in I was on shaky ground facing
complications with Lupus that I was quite honestly afraid of.
I thought about where God has seen me through
and now where I stood.
I was staring down at the hard fact that
we had some choices to make. Treatment plans had to be decided
and life would once again change for me. As I looked over numbers
of the medical cost and how my kidneys were now affected
my heart just sank.
The ground shook and so did my faith
for the first time as I was truly weak.
Then something beautiful happened...
Those who love us went forth and
decided to " stand in the gap ".
When you first hear that term you think
"to fill in a space".
That is exactly what took place
but in such a deeper way.
There was a great distance that had arose
from where I was to where I needed to be.
I pretty much at the start was
paralyzed by my deepest fears.
My best girlfriends who are such beautiful women
began to hold me up with their love, prayers
and constant reminders of God's promise
that we stand upon.
Then the precious blessing began to bloom
inside the heart of Mr. Dior
These past months I have watched God take my husband
on a journey where he "went to the wall" for me in every way possible.
He moved forward no matter what obstacle
was placed before him. He stayed true to the man
that was committed to fighting for his wife and family.
Never a word of complaint, never
a word of tiredness or weary,
just his beautiful smile and love spilled over.
Each day he reached a point where he gave
all that he had for us and then some.
Then provisions were given through love
and greater blessings poured out upon us.
As we sat together in church hand in hand
last Sunday tears filled my eyes while
I whispered praises in my heart.
We are rejoicing in the glory
while " grace like rain " is falling upon us...
We are now in a new beautiful valley
where God has so righteously placed us.
I am filled with so much love for this man
and those that I could not imagine my life without.
To my dearest friends, fellow bloggers and readers,
thank you for your love, continued support
and above all for your prayers that
" stand in the gap "
on our behalf.
