This verse was my grandma's life verse. My grandma not only loved this verse, she clung to it, completely believing the truth that it holds. I can assure you that in her eighty-seven years on this earth my grandma experienced plenty a "day of trouble."
|My grandparents during WWII|
What an amazing testimony those moments have been to me! In her truly darkest, most troubled days, my grandma clung ferociously to her Savior.
I didn't like watching my grandma lose her freedoms slowly over the last few years of her life, and it was very difficult for me when she was relieved of her suffering when I was 19 years old.
If you knew my grandparents then you knew what it was to be in love. However, my grandma's greatest love was and is her Savior. My only solace at the time of her death was that she was with her true love, her Lord. The One on whom she called on her darkest days.
The Lord truly is good. He was good enough to give me the example of my grandma, and to give me nineteen years to learn from her walk with Him.
Even now, many years later, I miss her deeply, but I know that I shall see her again, because of the goodness of my Lord.
