How hard is it to be a follower of Christ? It’s not simple but life is hard in general. Jesus says; Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
There is always a solution for every problem.
This poem is in honor of my beloved mom...
And most of all, is in gratitude for how the Lord
has been mercifully and faithfully caring for her...
watching over her ever since she nearly died on March 9th
Healing comes from God on high
(Though wrought through human hands)
And miracles are gifts from God
That no one understands.
Healing from our Maker...
Undertaking our repair
Is one of many ways
He says,"I made you and I care."
Healing through white blood cells
In a wondrous, complex fashion...
Closing wounds and fading scars
Are signs of His Compassion.
Broken bones that mend
And all the pain He takes away
Are reasons that we have
To thank Him each and every day.
Special praise goes out to God for the recent healing
of a serious blood infection (for which she was hospitalized)
and the direct answer to prayer for them finally
putting her back on the ventilator to assist with breathing difficulties.
The miracle of Mom's smile...is what I praise the Lord for today!
After her serious brain injury on March 9th, Mom had lost many functions... Including her ability to smile. We were led by all the 'experts' to believe she would never get these back.
This Sunday my daughter went out to see her at the nursing home. She was greeted by an aide who said, "She's having a really good day today!" My daughter was puzzled (since Mom has not been able to show expression since the injury.) "What do you mean?" she asked the aide. "When I came into her room today she had her eyes open and gave me a big, beautiful smile." She described Mom as being in a good mood or happy! Needless to say, she was shocked but overjoyed. As soon as she left the nursing home, she called me excitedly with this wonderful news.
When it comes to the Almighty, never say never.
What an Awesome God we serve! I am humbled by His power and His mercy.
