Forgotten?

I say to God my Rock, "Why have you forgotten me? Why must I go about mourning, oppressed by the enemy?" Psalm 42:9

This was my bible verse in one of my devotionals today. Somedays this is truly what it feels like. I know God has not forgotten me. I know that, but some days the grief can be so gripping that it is difficult to breathe. So difficult that it is only by God's grace that I am able to get up and care for the boys he has so graciously blessed me with. I am so very thankful for those boys. They keep me going and remind me of the good in my life.

I love you girl.


Oh Lord Jesus,
I come to you right now to ask you to rest your mighty hand on Kristy's burning heart. Lord, I just ask that you let your peace and your hope come to fill her again and again. Oh God, you know how our arms ache and our hearts break when we wake in the mornings to face more days without the babies we loved so much. Father God, I ask that you accept our pain as a sacrifice to you. Lord, only you know the pain and the longing of Kristy's heart. She is yours, Father. Remind her, over and over, that you will never, ever leave her. Plant reminders of the hope that is found in you and of your faithfulness on every corner. She needs to hear you now, Lord. Draw near to my precious sister in Christ. Oh Heavenly Father, draw near.

In Jesus' name I ask all these things on my sister's behalf,

Amen.

My friend, this verse is so gripping to the heart, isn't it. I think because it's challenging to seperate what we feel with what our head knows. But I am thankful that as you do feel, in your heart, abandon....your head knows that God is always there and forever holding you. I am praying for you always. love, Shannon

Kristy-

Sweet friend... know that I continue to pray for you as these days press on... some definitely press harder than others, but I am so proud of you and the way that you remember your sweet boys with Jesus while constantly being engaged with the boys you have here. Some days are just hard and I pray that you will continually feel God's arms wrapped around you as He carries you to those more "sunny" ones.

I love you friend... I'm praying!

I know! I don't know what else to say. I understand your thoughts and I understand the Grace God gives to get us out of bed.

Wow do I understand that sentiment. Have you forgotten me Lord? I'm so glad we know deep down that He has not but also it is okay to ask Him.

Thanks for your continued prayers. Praying that God's presence is evident to you this day!
