It has been a while since my last post. I actually have one started based on part of Psalm 16... but for reasons only known to the Father, I am unable to finish is right now. I know that for that post He has something different in mind... I will listen and wait for His prompting.
Right now... we are just getting through the days with faith and hope. A week and a half ago my husband took his father to the hospital. He is 90 years young and has lived a healthy life. When he first went in we thought it was pneumonia. 5 days later we found out he has cancer.
In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, becuase the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance to God's will. ~Romans 8:26-27
When we learn a loved one is nearing the end of his or her life a wave of emotions hit. In a way the mourning process has begun. Not only are our lives filled with the daily responsibilities we have been given, but our days are now filled with nursing care, paperwork, cooking extra meals... emotional stresses. I know that right now, the words won't come from my heart to my fingers on this keyboard. How I wish I could be here everyday pouring out my heart and visiting the blogs I love so dearly. There is so much filling our days that when my head hits the pillow and I don't 'have the words to pray...the Spirit is there... interceding.
Father, I thank you for your grace, you goodness and the hope that is in you and your son Jesus. I thank you for this precious time we have... I thank You for placing me in a family where love abounds for each other and for Jesus! I thank you for Your Spirit - right there, praying when I cannot, giving me strength!
