These last few days my heart has been so heavy for several babies that are so sick. There are so many hurting children. So many hurting people. Sometimes you don't even know what to say to encourage them. Prayer is the one thing that I know. Prayer is the one thing that God gave us when there seems to be nothing else. I have been praying for sweet little Stellan. And sweet little Jonah.And precious little Nathan.And sweet Avery Grace.And little Abby.
I have covered their parents and grandparents with prayers. I can't imagine what they are going through. They are finding strength in God. They are being held up by the prayers of people like you and I.
I found the following in a worship book. It says it all.
For those looking for purpose and direction,
God gave a Wonderful Counselor.
For those filled with anxiety and strife,
God gave a Prince of Peace.
To the lost and helpless,
God gave a Good Shepherd.
To those needing a voice in their brokenness,
God gave an Advocate.
To those seeking answers,
To the ones ravaged by physical illness and spiritual calamity,
the Great Physician.
And for all of those facing the darkness of death,
God gave the Resurrection and the Life.
And as if that weren't enough, to everyone with no spark of divine presence in their lives,
He gave Immanuel - God with us.
