“And let us not be weary in well-doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”
King James Version (KJV)
You may have noticed that I have been “recycling” some of my posts over the past few months. That is because I have had some distracting health issues. Nothing critical. Distracting. Migraines which cause blury vision, Vertigo from an inner-ear disorder called Menieres` which has plagued me since 1984 and “different” floaters in my left eye which caused some concern.
So I became discouraged. Okay, I will admit it. I was feeling sorry for myself because I wasn’t up to the challenge of writing, singing or teaching. So last week, I asked the Lord to help me write in a way that glorifies Him. The true question was of course, have I written anything that counts?
He answered in a way last night that took my breath away. I was reminded of Ephesians 3.
17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
So what did He do that was so amazing? He brought to our attention that an article that I had written several years ago was published in the December issue of the CMA (Christian Motorcyclists Association) Magazine! (No, I don’t ride. My husband does. I have helped any way I could to help this ministry to bikers – that they may know of Christ’s love for them.)
After his CMA meeting with Riders for The Rock last night, John called and asked if I had submitted anything to CMA Heartbeat magazine? I honestly couldn’t remember anything. He said that someone mentioned it in the meeting. Someone said,”You never know when you might pick up a magazine and read an article written by someone you know – like Kathy Purdy.”
We searched through the Heartbeat magazines going back through the fall.
We found this in the December, 2016 issue. I wrote this several years ago after our first participation in the “Toy Run” for the local Children’s Homes. I never imagined it would ever be published. I am still amazed at The Lord’s timing. It is always perfect!
You see, our work for Him is never in vain. He remembers.
