But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weakness, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
This week was challenging. Bubby broke his arm Tuesday night while playing on his scooter. The next morning you had your dental work completed. The following day we had a follow up with the pediatric orthopedic doctor to look at Bubby's arm. The ER doctor explained on Tuesday, that because of the location of Bubby's fracture, he may need surgery. Each day, through it all, I felt God's whisper to me to trust in Him. He had you all in His care. He had me.
It was astonishing to see how calm and strong you were at the dentist. There were no complications; in fact they were able to complete 2 visits in one day. This meant that you wouldn't have to have sedation a second time. It was truly a blessed experience. The next day at the orthopedic doctor I was so comforted to have such a loving staff help Bubby with his arm. We received the news that he would not need surgery and three weeks in his cast would heal his arm. This was another blessing. I kept thinking how Daddy was supposed to be in the Middle East all week, and how grateful I was that his trip had been postponed. But, what I felt the most during the entire week was a sense of peace that I know only God gave me.
Going through hard times is never easy but it always makes me grow closer and stronger in my walk with Jesus. As you get older, don't run from the hard times, embrace them. God will do amazing things in your life if you seek Him. He is waiting to show you how much He loves you.
This week we played I Am by Crowder on repeat. I believe these words were a comfort to all of us.
There's no space that His love can't reach There's no place where we can't' find peace There's no end to amazing grace
Take me in with Your arms spread wide Take me in like an orphan child Never let go Never leave my side
I am Holding on to You I am Holding on to You In the middle of the storm I am holding on I am
Love like this Oh my God to find I am overwhelmed With a joy divine Love like this sets our hearts on fire
This is my resurrection song This is my halleluiah come This is why it's to You I run
There's no space that His love can't reach There's no place where we can't find peace There's no end to amazing grace
Today, I embrace this smile and laughter and appreciate it in a new way.
