The Best Solution

The time to return to California has arrived.  I board the plane Tuesday 11:40 a.m.  This has been the best of times and the worst of times.  Loving friends have filled my time here with blessings to help me during the newness of being without Dan.  I leave with some things unresolved.  Since I am not a mind reader or a magician, I do not understand.  Nor do I know how to fix broken relationships that do not want to be mended.

Looking forward, I do my best to leave these things in the hands of God.  The best solution to a broken heart is to keep on praying, giving your pain to God, as you seek His guidance, listening for His answers as you read His Word…and choosing to follow Him.

“Jesus spoke to His disciples to show them that they should always pray and not give up. He said: ‘In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared about men. And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary.’

” For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care about men, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won’t eventually wear me out with her coming!’ ”

 And the Lord said, ‘Listen to what the unjust judge says.  And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off?  I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?’ ” Luke 18: 1 – 8.  Think on these things.  Let God help you.  Will you be one of the intentional followers of Jesus when He comes again?  — Anne
