"Father God, give me a heart that looks to You for what I need today, whether it is wisdom, comfort, joy, or perseverance...I seek You and ask that I would glorify you today!"
It was a tough morning. My little daughter that "falls apart" did and I needed to hold her and try to calm down the out of control emotions within her for over an hour. It makes me hurt for her...for the needs that where unmet those 1st months of her life, the cries that where not answered, the desires that all babies have to be held, loved, cuddled, nurtured were left unmet...
I pray and ask the LORD what to do to help her...what I hear is what He has done for me...draw her near and be her peace till she can receive it. (Eph. 2:13-17). So, our little world stops for a time; no school, no laundry, I just sit holding her rigged body and pray for healing and help. After it is over, she if fine and helpful and happy again. But those moments when things become to much for her remind me of the times when things are to much for me and I want to remember to look up and know HE is holding me, and I am not alone.
On a happy...I got both Alia and Joeliana's hair done the last two days. Yea, that always makes me feel good. I did something fun with Alia's that I will show you later. Till then, LOOK UP...Our Heavenly Father is much closer that we think!
