Jehovah Rapha

God is most definitely at work!
I was so grateful to be reminded of God's provision and loving kindness to ALL his children.

"'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope."
- Jeremiah 29:11 

According to the "National Days" calendar, today, August 29th, is "More Herbs, Less Salt".

Not being a gardener (by any stretch of the imagination) I can never tell one leafy herb from another but I do know that they can be used for both (a) seasoning of food and (b) healing purposes.


Surely Jehovah Rapha (Lord Healer) -- who created herbs -- can bring about an even more magnificent healing. Sorrow can be turned to rejoicing (Psalm 30:11) by the power of the LORD. Humans will never live up to our expectations but we can confidently put our trust in GOD (Psalm 118:8)  I am eager to see what he can and will do. Are you?
