Jehovah-Shalom: the covenant keeping God of redemption who brings us peace. I've been in the midst of turbulent waters and my canoe has broken up and vanished quite a while ago. As you may know, my husband has been facing serious health issues; I've just gotten out of major surgery a week ago tomorrow; and now today I got a phone call that my husband was in a serious car accident. He had minor injuries but the car was totaled. Now this is an older car that is still not paid off....and it was paid for through a private loan...which means that the money we receive from the insurance company really should go to the people who hold our loan. Which means that we are in desperate need of a car with which to get my husband to and from work and we have no means of getting one.
That's how God writes scripts. And that is what he is doing in my life right now. I don't know what he's up to. I don't know how he will pull it off....I just know that he WILL accomplish his purposes in whatever it is he has planned for me and for my family. I know that our only safety; our only peace is in Jehovah-Shalom. He is the only source of safety, provision, health and life , and comfort. I just need to stay out of his way as he goes to work. I just need to pray rather than panic.
Please pray for my family and myself. Pray that God gets the job done that he has begun. Pray for our peace in the midst of it.
