Dear Connecting Point Friend,
As you have probably noticed there have been no Connecting Points for over a week. There is a reason for that – I’ve been very sick with a cold/flu that has caused heavy congestion (Not a good thing when you have a nose like mine), deep and prolonged coughing, and tiredness. This is day nine and there is no relief. Please pray for me, but more than that, please pray for my wife. She seems to be coming down with it now as well and I have done everything possible to keep her from being exposed to the germs. The fact that she is getting it is concerning because she is scheduled for gall bladder surgery next week, and really wanted to have that done before I leave for the Philippines in 4 weeks. We know God has all of this under control, but please pray for our strength and courage to press ahead as we endure this time of suffering.
As you continue to read and study the Book of Isaiah with me, take a look at Isaiah 51:15-16.
name. I have put my words in your mouth and covered you with the shadow of my hand— I who set the heavens in place, who laid the foundations of the earth, and who say to Zion, ‘You are my people.’”
The sea is churned up, and the waves are roaring, but I belong to the Lord! Hallelujah.
