“Mom, I’m at a job in Woodstock; Janet is at McMaster Children’s Hospital in Hamilton with Jon-Marc. The doctors are going to give her the test results and they would like her to have someone with her.” “Phil, I’m leaving now.”
I will never forget that day, those words, and the tears I cried. Even now, as I write this eleven years later, the memory of that day is vivid, bringing deep emotion and tears. We thank the Lord that Jon-Marc is entering highschool in the fall. God spared his life, and guided the family through the diagnosis of Leukemia, the extremely difficult first 2½ years following, conintued treatments, and the very slow improvement since. God has guided the parents through dozens of decisions, and helps them to continue to have a healthy marriage. None of that could have happened without complete dependence on God and His Word.
We are looking at Psalm 119: 105-112 today. These verses have some very helpful principles and action points to implement when going through dangerous and perhaps life-altering situations. Let’s take a close look at them. Remember, none of these are likely new to you, but perhaps you will see them with a different perspective as we consider COVID-19 through the lens of scripture.
105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2016). (Ps 119:105–112). Wheaton, IL: Crossway Bibles.
