Just Pray


I

prayed

because there was nothing else for me to do

and

Peace

filled my heart

Peace

filled the room

because

He was there

in

the hospital room

where my precious cousin

was sleeping.

He was there

because

He is always there

and

when you know

He is...

His Peace

overcomes you~

His Peace

that transcends all understanding

His Peace

that

you know can only be from Him

as there is no way

that I could have produced it on my own.

His Peace~

a confirmation

that

He is taking care of her.

His Peace~

knowing that He is with her.

His Peace~

knowing that

she loves Him

and that

she loves His Son

because

it is in them

where she has placed her hope.

So

I take her hand

as she sleeps

in her helpless state

and

I

in my helpless state

because

there was nothing else I could do.

Was I settling for second best

because there was nothing else I could?

Not at all

because

it is

what I need to do

always,

even when I think there is something I can do.

Prayer~

invites God into the room

Prayer~

acknowledges that

God is God

and that

He loves her more than I do,

as she is his daughter

just as I am

just as you are

because

of

His Beloved Son

that

He had to watch suffer

so that we do not,

even though we do suffer

when trials come into our life~

the

Unplanned

the

Accidents

like this one

that brought my cousin to the hospital bed.

But

God

was there

the moment I saw her face

the moment our eyes connected.

She knew,

as the tears flooded,

but the tears of

hope

because

she loves

and

I love

God

who gave us both a second chance

the moment we believed

in His Son.

As

I left the room

and kissed her goodbye

I knew she was in good hands

the moment

I

prayed

because there was nothing else I could do.

Look up

to the

One

who loves you perfectly

who is always with you

who created you on purpose

and

pray

when there is nothing else you can do

because

there is

something that

He can do...

Always.

Is there a "nothing else that you can do" circumstance

in your life at this moment?

Put Him in Your Story~

I, _____________, lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

Psalm 121:1-2

Please pray for my cousin,

my sister in Christ,

Lori

and her family,

to the

One

Who

always knows what to do.
