More from Marie Braam

November 8, 2017 by Marie Braam (Cape Town, South Africa)

I am both humbled and delighted at having my meditation included in this November issue of The Upper Room.
I am living in the bonus years now. My husband died three years ago after a togetherness of 52 years, and I have love-filled memories of him. My children provide all my needs, so I live in an attitude of gratitude to the Lord for all his " benefits towards me."
I have three families. My biological family, my church family and the family — " as numerous  as the  stars. . and the sand  on the seashore " (Gen. 22:17) — provided by The Upper Room. There is overwhelming blessing to read personal messages from God's word from all over the world, wherever God's children are.  

The Lord bless and keep you,

Marie Braam

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
