Let's Pray

Sometimes I look at my life with my sick daughter and I think. . . "This is too much to handle.". . . "How will I ever keep up with everything?". . . Can I really administer 365 enemas this year?. . . Fix 730 bags of formula?. . . Pull up and give 730 doses of medication by December 31st?. . . Take multiple trips out-of-town?. . . Rub hurting legs several hours a night?. . . Tell her "everything is going to be ok" day after day?
Sometime I get down. . . it's only natural. . . she is my baby and I love her. Things weren't suppose to be this way. I am human. . . I am a mommy. . . I am created in the image of God. . . I feel emotion.
God uses these times to show me I CAN. . . to show me I WILL. . . and He will help me. . . He will help us. I am so thankful for my children. I am so thankful for my husband. I am so thankful for salvation. I am so thankful for every minute we have together. . . good & bad. God's love is so amazing.
It is so easy to take things for granted. . . so easy to focus on the bad and miss the good. Tonight my heart aches for the people of Japan.
Dear God,
Thank you for my family. . . my husband and my beautiful children. Thank you for our home, our church, and our community. Thank you for the courage and strength you give me to get through each day. Thank you for answering our prayers concerning Ana's leg pain the other night.
Lord, tonight I pray for the people of Japan. I pray that you give them comfort and peace in the days to come. I pray that they seek you. I pray for the many people who have lost loved ones. I ask you to give the people of Japan the strength to persevere and overcome this tragedy.
In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen
