When God puts love and compassion in your heart toward someone, He's offering you an opportunity to make a difference in that person's life. You must learn to follow that love. Don't ignore it. Act on it. Somebody needs what you have.
2016 held the death of my mom...but the beginning of her eternity with Jesus. It brought a total hip replacement for me due to osteonecrosis...6 months off work and the loss of my job. My boss gave my position away. I know God has something better in store for me.... Heavenly Father.... Thank you for one more day and a new year to trust in You!
I know nothing of GOD's timing. It doesn't concern me anymore. But I know that the way we look at stress can FREAKING KILL you! Scientifically, it's not the stress, but the attitude toward it. So embrace it. It's gonna happen. Stoicism can save your life.
