Back to Work

After a weekend of sleep, Kathryn woke up this morning and got herself ready for work. She just called at 11:15 AM to say that she still has energy and plans to work until the afternoon. Over the weekend, as recovering from the current set back seemed painstakingly slow, we talked about the strength that comes from setting goals and being hopeful even when things don't look promising. By faith she laid out an outfit for work last night. When God has a work for us to do, He supplies our energy and everything else we need to get the job done. We recognize that Kathryn is on her feet today and back to work because the Lord has ordained it. She is happy to keep on the path He has set for her. I am humming the following hymn as I think about Kathryn busy at work today.

“Fear not, I am with thee; O be not dismayed!
For I am thy God, and will still give thee aid;
I'll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,
Upheld by my righteous, omnipotent hand.
