Lift Up Your Eyes to Me ~ Snippets of Rain

Snippets of RainLift up your eyes to Me

I am doing things you do not know.
I am working things out in a way you do not expect.
Keep your trust in Me.

“This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.”
Psalm 118:23

During times of waiting on God to answer our prayers, let us never forget that God neither slumbers nor sleeps.  While we wait, He is doing marvelous things that our eyes will one day see.

Blessings to all.

*For about two weeks, I have been struggling with markedly increased neck pain and inner ear symptoms.  Double whammy!  I have been working at my nurse job, but trying to minimize computer time while at home.  Bear with me while I await God’s healing touch. 

He is so faithful to strengthen and minister to us during the trials.

Give Me Jesus

Take your streets of gold;
Give me a place of no more pain.
Take your mansions
And all manner of heavenly gain.
Give me Jesus.

“And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new.”
Revelation 21:5

Due to the neck issues, I am still having to avoid using my PC for posts, so excuse the basic format from my WP app.

I don’t know about you, but although I do long to see streets of gold in heaven, what will mean more to me is being in a place without suffering.

What will matter most, though, is spending eternity in the presence of Christ.

The photo above was an iPhone picture. Miss not sharing more of my Nikon photos! 😁

He Will

At a glance, the only thing that looks different about my post today is that I did not begin with a photo. What you cannot see going on behind the scene, though, is that I am typing this from my iPhone and not my PC (a frustrating endeavor).

There’s a reason. I have experienced a serious setback with my neck pain, and not really sure what caused it. The only thing I can determine is that I did not tolerate the strain from two recent trips. I can usually bounce back, but this time it seems to be heading the other direction.

As a result, I am having to minimize time on computers, since it seems to be aggravating the problem more so than usual. Unfortunately, this includes doing any work with my images. 😒

Using my phone, I can still read and respond to your posts, and also attempt some of my own. As I do, please forgive any typos: me and smartphone typing do not get along!

I desire your prayers, as I am pursuing some measures to alleviate the pain. My journey is nothing compared to what others face, so I hate to sound like a whiner. It’s just that pain is no fun.

But the following passage reminds that no matter the trial, God is right beside us. No matter what we face, He will rescue. He will intervene.

He will.

***

Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
You will revive me;
You will stretch out Your hand against the wrath of my enemies,
And Your right hand will save me.
The Lord will perfect that which concerns me;
Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever;
Do not forsake the works of Your hands.
Psalm 138:7,8

Blessings,

Sue
