a three strand cord


Thursday 29th May 2014:

I struggled through the whole day today, battling with my worries and fears again. I became overwhelmed all the uncertainties in my life – all the worries about right now and all the worries for the next few months. After reminding myself not to worry yesterday, it all came flooding back again today… with reinforcements.

I came home tonight and throughout the course of the evening bit by bit I fell to pieces. Ended up sobbing and pouring out all my anxieties to Elikem.

And it was amazing. We hugged. We talked. We prayed. Then we decided to put some music on and praise God. It was refreshment like a waterfall. We ended up singing our hearts out and dancing round the living room. I felt a lot better afterwards – and I realised – the power of unity. The power of being united with Elikem is one amazing thing, but the power of us being united with God too is even better. I was reminded – a three strand cord cannot be broken.

Today I am thankful for unity.

  1. Beautiful…

    There is a prayer that my children were taught in Pre-School. We always remember it with a smile:

    “I will trust in The Lord, and not be afraid”.

    What we focus on expands therefore as we turn our attention and focus onto HIM, we are flooded with HIS Love, Peace, Strength and Endurance. And you turned to HIM … 🙂

    • Thank you Jane. Your words are inspiring and encouraging. And amazingly – I read that very verse this morning as I prayed!!! “When I am afraid, O Lord Almighty, I put my trust in you. I trust in God and am not afraid; I praise him for what he has promised. What can a mere human being do to me?” – Psalm 56 verses 3-4. 🙂
