The Pain of a Parent

In my last post I talked about a hope filled 2010 however the year has started off with many struggles and today is only January 17! I know if we are breathing we should praise the Lord but sometimes it is just hard to deal with life. And I think one of the hardest things for a parent is to see their child struggle...whether it be emotionally, physically or spiritually. Lately I have witnessed my childen struggling and it is not an easy sight, in fact it is down right painful. I can't find the words for this post much less the words that will bring comfort to the different situations that are taking place in their lives. It's hard for me to be an encourager, an optimist, or a good example of having faith when I struggle myself at times.

I just cling to the fact that the same God who blessed us with the miraculous birth of Morgan Kate is the same God who will walk with us as we face these challenges. May I have faith the size of a mustard seed.

I just keep thinking Jeremiah 29:11.

God does not leave or forsake us...as we kindred spirits know He is with us ALWAYS. Although we don't understand why we are faced w/certain things...one day He will reveal the answer. God's goodness is wrapped around us each and every day as He promised. As one of my favorite songs goes..."You raise me up to be more that I can be." Even when we think we cannot possibly go another step, He takes it for us. I also believe that He sends His angels (aka our Christain friends/sisters in Christ)to carry us through...to lift us up. Humbly we bow down together and pray to our God who is worthy of all our heart's pains, desires and praises.
Kathy, I am with you in prayer and love and we do have that mustard seed sized faith.
Here in the breath of Christ we live...Love you, Phala
