How We Respond To Trials

Exodus 15:25-26

25 And he cried unto the Lord; and the Lord shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the awaters  were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he bproved them,

26 And said, If thou wilt adiligently bhearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and ckeep all his statutes, I will put none of these ddiseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that ehealeth thee.

Moses turned to the Lord when he was faced with a trial. He trusteed that the Lord would help him. The children of Israel turned to Moses and murmured about the problem. What a difference. I wonder how many times we murmur and how many times we turn to the Lord. Something to think about and strive to do more turning to the Lord.

Gratitude

I am grateful today for the kind buyers of my old house. I’m glad they turned out to be members of the church too and have a great attitude.

What Did I Do Great Today...

  • I got a Covid test today in preparation for my treatment Monday.
  • I picked up a last few things at the old house.
  • I investigated why a wire that was sent to me was denied. No resolution yet, but I started the process.

Random Thoughts

I didn’t get to stay and see Shari down the hill today, unfortunately. But at least I stopped at her house long enough to get a shower since I don’t have gas service here yet, which means no hot water.  They were at work and I had to come back up the hill to pick up stuff at the old house that Tony had planned on doing, but ended up not.

They are such a nice family over there. I’m sure they’ll fit into the ward very well. And they were kind to me and very understanding of the stuff that hadn’t gotten taken out yet – they were very willing to take it to the dump and not one bit upset about it.
