“And He has put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many shall see and fear (revere and worship) and put their trust and confident reliance in the Lord” Psalm 40:3
He has Parkinson’s disease. He is getting weaker—for a while he was falling, but thanks to new medication, he can walk again. His voice also gives out when he speaks for any length of time. But his eyes! You should see his eyes. They radiate Christ. He always has a smile for everyone—his face glows. And He also possess great insights into God’s Word
This week, during our Care Group meeting, he shared with us, with tears of joy, that although the past year has been a very hard, the Lord has put a song in His heart—all the time. You can see that.
I like to sit beside him during our meetings. You can feel the love of Christ radiate from him. After I have been with him I come away a more resolute follower of Christ..
Thank you Lord, for people like our friend who reflect You in all they do and say—even in their infirmities. Thank you for your Holy Spirit who produces joy in our hearts when we allow you to control our lives. Amen
