It has been a rough few days for our family. My father-in-law’s health has been declining over the past year, and on Friday he stopped breathing. Thankfully, my husband was there, and he gave him CPR.
He was rushed to the hospital and immediately put on a ventilator. They are planning to wean him off the ventilator today and see if he can breathe on his own.
I don’t know what today holds but I do know who holds it. Isaiah 41:10 says, Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.
While I want God to heal, I also know that that may not happen on this side of heaven.
What has this week been like for you? Maybe it’s been smooth sailing, or maybe you’ve had some difficult days. You’re wondering how God is going to work in your situation.
In the midst of our struggles, He is working things out that we can’t begin to imagine. Let’s trust Him even when we don’t understand his plan.
Romans 8:28 (NIV) reminds us He is working all things out for our good. And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Lord, help us to trust you today!
Thank you for taking time out of your day to stop by my blog. I’m on Facebook, Pinterest, and my favorite one, Instagram.
Have a blessed day!
