Do you see the angel in the background looking as if he’s reaching out to touch my mom?
Well, for about six months now my Mom has been very ill.
My Mom is young, vivacious, full of life and always ready for an adventure. To see her at 59 years old basically confined to her bed with no energy, in extreme pain and basically withdrawn from life is hard to process.
And to make matters worse, there is no diagnosis.
She has seen specialists around the country and no one can figure out how to help her.
At least if there was a diagnosis, they could get going with some kind of treatment. We would all know what we are dealing with and could rally in her fight to get better. The doctors could give us some kind of glimpse as to what to expect and she could find hope in knowing that something, anything was being done to help make her better.
Instead, it is like she is being carried off into a very dark place as we all stand by feeling very helpless.
We’ve prayed and prayed and prayed.
I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that God is answering these prayers… just not in the definitive way we wish He would. But we hold on strong fully trusting even in the not knowing.
This past weekend though, I sensed my Mom slipping away… not just physically but emotionally and maybe even spiritually.
So, I’m coming to you asking for your prayers. I want my Mom to read your prayers and feel overwhelming encouragement that people who don’t even know her would pause to lift her up today.
If you have time, would you write your prayer out in the comments box. Tonight I’ll have someone help my mom get her lap top, log on, and see the body of Christ rushing the gates of Heaven on her behalf.
And I think it will help her smile for the first time in a long while.
