Due to sickness, I was unable to be at church today. Thankfully, someone is preaching for the month as we transition to life with another child. This transition has been a tough one. We got back home Tuesday, found out on Wednesday that the baby has high bilirubin (requiring him to sleep with a light called a “biliblanket”), and my wife was readmitted to the hospital on Thursday with a kidney infection. She returned home on Friday. Needless to say, my wife and I are dealing with sleep deprivation (her more than I) and low immunities. People have been wonderful to us, and for that we are grateful.
Some may consider these life’s battles. If they are battles, they are most definitely minor in my perspective. There are people today who are waging some serious war. Their marriages are under attack. Their children are under attack. Their finances are under attack. The list goes on.
This song puts things in perspective. It may look like we are surrounded by our enemies or our situations, but we are surrounded by God’s presence which fills the whole earth. Let this minister to you. Believe this truth!
