"But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us." 2 Corinthians 4:7
"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." John 16:33
This has been a difficult week. My husband (usually the healthy one) has been in the hospital, and was finally diagnosed with pericarditis, an inflammation of the heart's lining. There have been many anxious moments, and even though his prognosis is good, it's a waiting game, still filled with many unknowns. Will the condition recur? (It can.) Will he tolerate the best medicine? (So far, no. But he's tolerating the second best.) Did the antibiotic they gave him in the hospital give him a dangerous intestinal bug? (We hope not.) I know these things are common to man, but this woman is a weak and weary soul at the moment. Just holding on with whatever faith I've got, to the One who promises to hold on to Me and those I love.
