Giving Him All the Praise

He is worthy of all our praise.
Since I last posted I have witnessed firsthand the power of God's healing hand. The weekend of February 7, 2009 was one of the most challenging times of my life. In the Intensive Care Unit at the hospital, holding my mom's frail hand and caressing her wavy red hair, He was right by my side. When I felt sick to my stomach with worry, I knew that He loves her even more than I do. When I felt like screaming, "Somebody figure out what is wrong with her!" I knew that He already had the answer. And the solution. Returning to the hospital with a heavy heart, He provided strength that I needed. Not knowing what the future held, there was peace that He had a perfect plan.
My mom is at home now and doing well. I give Him all the praise.

"He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust." Psalm 91:1&2

"Because he loves me," says the Lord, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him." Psalm 91:14&15
