It’s Friday and time for another link up with Lisa Jo for Five Minute Friday. Friday is a time when we “write for five minutes not worrying if everything is just right.” You can join in HERE.
“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.” 2 Corinthians 4:16
We’ve been by her side, watching the slipping away process. The nurses say it wont be long now, maybe just a couple more days. When we visit her I think of my mom. I can’t help but do that. I think of that final day by her side. My heart breaks for my husband’s family. I know that feeling of ache and the power you feel to do nothing but watch it unfold.
Last night as we visited, I prayed again. Give her peace, give her comfort, ease her pain, wrap Your arms around this family.
As things fall apart in front of our eyes, it’s hard to see the truth that even in the midst of this, God is preparing something new, something better, something beautiful, something glorious.
There’s a party being planned in heaven right now, a celebration especially for her. I think of the welcoming committee who will be there waiting with arms wide open. I think of Jesus. And, yes, I think of my mom.
“He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:29-31
