“He maketh the barren woman to keep house and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the Lord.” Psalm 113:9
My first laparoscopy surgery was scheduled for July 30, 2000. A week before that on July 23rd, I was reading in Psalms. Someone once said you should try to read one Proverb a day and 5 Psalms a day, then you can read through both books every month. Since it was the 23rd day, I read Psalms 111-115.
When I got to Psalm 113:9, it was as if those words were the only words on the page. “He maketh the barren woman to keep house and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the Lord.” I had read Psalms many times before, but I did not remember ever seeing those words. They were God’s words to ME! What joy I felt in my heart, such comfort and full of promise. I remember sharing it with my mom and other friends and family.
