During the whole time that I was sick and focused on fighting a deadly enemy, life went on without me. Mark continued to go to work, the kids went to school, Community of Faith continued on. The only thing that mattered during that time was my relationship with Christ. I was desperate to have Him close, to know He was with me, to hear his words, and to be comforted and strengthened by his presence. He gave me life and hope. He was all I needed. It was the only thing that mattered.
Now that life is going on WITH me, shouldn't it still be the same? My relationship with Christ should still be the one thing that really matters. If that continues to be my focus then everything else will fall into place.
"It is not circumstances that need altering first, but yourselves, and then the conditions will naturally alter. Spare no effort to become all I would have you. Follow every leading. I am your only Guide." (God Calling)
