Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.
This week has been eventful, stressful and it came with many tears. Here's a few things I might try to understand, but need to be entrusting to God.
I might UNDERSTAND that Gracie went home to be with Jesus, but I need to TRUST that it was God's will to take her home. She served her purpose on earth - in many, many ways.
I might UNDERSTAND that Mark has Leukemia, but I need to TRUST that God is holding his hand, and that of his wife and babies. What a surprise to learn this information just this last week, and how it rocked marriages all over the place to know that "till death do us part" could come at any time, in any circumstance and to always treat others like you would if it was the last week you had on earth. (Please feel free to add the "pray for our Daddy" button in my sidebar to your page - help us pray that Mark will be completely healed!)
I might UNDERSTAND that things in our Church are different for my Husband and I now, but I TRUST that God has it under control, and that the lack of words from everyone at church means people may just be searching for the right things to say to us, not just ignoring the incredible pain we are carrying.
I might UNDERSTAND that my daughter needs another surgery in 2 weeks, but I TRUST that God will heal her in HIS way, and allow her to have a story to tell others in the years to come that may bring someone else comfort. I will be posting Princess D's story tomorrow - please check back!
