Tests, Trials, and Faith

There are definitely times when our faith is tested. I know for me this is one of those times….

My wedding is three weeks away and there is still a lot to be done. I have had to depend on Ryan to get things done lately because my grandmother is in the hospital with an enlarged heart, irregular heartbeat, and pneumonia. She will have a pacemaker put in on today (Friday morning). We have been in this hospital for four days now. I miss my boys. My grandma is miserable here. She wants to go home. It is hard to stay positive when I am hearing so much negativity from her all day long. She is not a happy patient. ;o)

I don’t think either of us has slept more than three hours a night since we have been here. It is taking its toll on us.

I am grateful that I was there when she had the arrhythmia episode and passed out. She quit breathing and nearly went face first into the tile floor. I can’t believe how much God sets things up in our lives. My brother “just so happened” to come over that night to get his eyebrows tweezed (yes, my muscular, military, rough, manly man brother has his eyebrows tweezed by his sister). I can’t say how happy I am that he was there. Because of his military training he knew exactly what to do.

I know that God has a good bit of revelation to give me through all of this. I am just not seeing the big picture right now. I can’t wait to write about it when I do!

There are many more trial going on right now but God is ultimately in control. I can’t tell you how happy I will be to finally be married, have a home again, and go on that much desired honeymoon. Have a great weekend ladies!

Romans 8:28
“All things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”

What a difficult time, but I pray for a complete healing and recovery for your grandma and that all the details for the wedding will come together. I pray in the weeks and months ahead you will be able to look back on these days and see the handprint of God in your life.

Praying you through honey, I pray all wedding details fall into place. Just remember and keep ultimate goal in mind, that is the "I do" and living happily ever after.

I will be praying for your grandmother.

Wow, do I understand you. Overwhelmed is your days now. It may be years later when our God reveals the lesson of these few weeks. Thank you for sharing your struggle with me.

Lord, hold Amy, her brother, grandma and fiancee in your very hand this day. Let her know You are there surrounding them with your cautious care and lavish love. In Jesus name, Amen.

Wow, so much. Praying that His grace will see you through. We've had our shares of 'incidents' for months now, but it amazes me how God undergirds His children.
