I Will Sustain You

100_1445

Isaiah 46:4

Even to your old age and gray hairs
    I am He, I am He who will sustain you.
I have made you and I will carry you;
    I will sustain you and I will rescue you.

 

These last few weeks have been a roller coaster of emotions.  Watching my 96, almost 97, year old mother in the grips of illness, immobility, dementia; struggling simply to remember her children’s names has been a challenge to my trust in the Lord.   I often desire to remind the Lord that my mother has been His faithful servant her entire life.  She has loved and praised the Lord in word, song and actions.  Her servant’s heart has been awe-inspiring to me.  She has taught me about the love of Jesus by living her life.   And she continues to teach me grace and trust while her body rebels against her.

I choose to trust the Lord with my precious Mom and not question His timing.  He is God and I am not.  I know that He loves her and she loves Him.  I ask the Lord to teach me in this time and to cherish whatever moments Mom and I have together.  I will love her in those times that she does not know who I am and I will pray that the Lord’s desire for my mother will be fulfilled on earth as in heaven.

To God Be the Glory,

Kay

 

Update

It has been an emotional few weeks.  I have much to share but time will not allow at this point.  I would ask for your continued prayers for my Mom.  She is declining.

God is in the midst of His people and for that my gratitude abounds.

Walking with Him,

Kay

My Apologies

Hi All,

Sorry that I have not posted in awhile.  We had to take my Mom to the emergency room a few days ago.  She was then admitted to the hospital and is still there.  I thank you for your prayers in advance.  Hope to get back to the blog in the near future.

In His Hands I Rest,

Kay
