"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on...

"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee" (Isa. 26:3). These words were brought home very clearly to me while I was reading an article in an issue of the Sentinel, and they have been proved in my life many times.

After my husband passed on, I procured a greatly needed job with a firm I had worked for before my marriage. I was also advised to apply for a widow's pension, as I had my mother to care for. This I did, but my pension request was turned down because of a technicality. At first I was resentful and thought this unfair, since others in my position had received a pension. But on reflection I decided to put the whole business behind me. This was not easy to do. Wishing to see where my thinking was wrong, I gave the situation much deep prayer. Then I realized that even though my husband was no longer with me, God had always completely supported me, and He would continue to support me.
