Have you ever found yourself having a hard time? Have you ever struggled and been about ready to quit, but yet you were determined to keep on pushing? I have been thinking about that a lot this week. I had the flu earlier this week and felt oh so lousy. A good friend of mine has been struggling so hard for the past few weeks with her bipolarity. She lives in another state, but she has been leaning on me heavily via phone for support. Some days she was calling every hour or two all day and night. My mom has been in the hospital and having such a hard time with wounds and pain since a bad fall in her home. She lives about 2,000 miles away. She wants to go home, but she needs assistance, and so the next stop for her is short-term rehab. She is scared. That is the route my dad had to take. He ended up with an infection that killed him as a result of those stays, and did not get good care. We believe we have found a better place for her than we found for him. We are hopeful, but she is scared and discouraged.
What is my point? Hmmm… Oh yea, now I remember. My point is, when you feel like you are care worn and worn out, or scared or in pain what happens? We pray and we also ask for help. And then….like a rainbow after a storm, the help appears. Sometimes it appears in human form, and the person helps us finish our race. Sometimes it is subtler, and God’s graces and strength flood our hearts….and He lets us know He helps us finish our race. I say it that way because He always DOES help us finish our race. Sometimes He stays in the background and sometimes He let’s us know. I saw the link for the embedded video below on Cee’s blog. I loved this video and it gave me strength and courage to be the strength for my loved ones journey by being a conduit for God’s graces. May He do the same for you as well.
