I trust you are well.
Thank you, I continue to receive responses from the PL which told the story of the Dog who awaited his owner’s return. I thank God that that story spoke to many of you. It certainly did to me.
This PL is going to be very personal; I give no apology as I know The Lord wants me to share the following.
I received an email at the end of last week from one of our Surrey Officers. Here is part of it.
“All in all, as a family; we are extremely blessed. I was thinking about that this morning, I know that trials will come but we have certainly been through some wonderful times and so often overlook the day to day blessings that God gives us. The classic verse from Lamentations comes to mind and the wonderful hymn ‘Great is Thy Faithfulness’.
Every blessing to you, not sure when I will see you next but know that I am praying for you Alice and the CPA. Take care, Adoni bless you!”
The writer had no idea how important that message was for me. I had felt under the weather for a few weeks, but knew I was physically well. As I read his reference to “Great is Thy Faithfulness” the penny dropped. I was running up to the Anniversary of the death of my Husband, 11 years ago this week. Some years this period of time has come and gone and no effects felt, this year and I don’t know why; it has been lingering in the subconscious. The Hymn “Great is They faithfulness was sung at our Wedding and then at my Husband’s Thanksgiving Service.
I want to Testify here and now of the Amazing Faithfulness of My Heavenly Father, during these last 11 years before you and My Heavenly Father.
I want to repeat the verses the Officer referred to, so that to you, wherever you are right now, they will be a Blessing as they were to me.
Lamentations 3. 20-23
I will never forget this awful time,
as I grieve over my loss.
Yet I still dare to hope
when I remember this:
The faithful love of the Lord never ends!
His mercies never cease.
Great is his faithfulness;
His mercies begin afresh each morning.
I have the great honour of reading the above verses at Surrey Police Remembrance Service this coming Monday at HQ’s. God’s Co-incidences!
May you be aware of His Constant Faithfulness. Amen.
In Him Alice.
