God gave His Son to die for me but allowed mine to live

We got the call at 3:40 am two weeks ago today. My 43 year old son was in the hospital and was in surgery after a heart attack. We raced there and sat with his wife and prayed for our precious son. After surgery the Dr showed us a picture of an artery that carried blood to half of his heart blocked 100%. The second picture showed it fully opened after insertion of a stent. As I sat with him in the hospital all I could do was thank God for giving him a second chance at life and thank Him for allowing me to continue to be Mom to my amazing son.

As we got further news with tests he had done that he had no damage to his heart I was so very grateful and within my soul I felt even more deeply an appreciation for God giving His only son to die that horrible death on the cross for my sins and the sins of the world. He had given His precious son for me and mine but allowed me to keep my precious son.

The last post I made last July told of a year of difficulty and our recent race to the hospital gave me another opportunity to trust my most trustworthy God. All of us have stories of both the good and wonderful things and the heartbreaks of this life we live. When the next difficulty comes our way, I am praying both you and I will remember that our God is good, all the time.  He is loving and has our best interest at heart, all the time. I would love to pray for you if you are in a season of heartache or trouble. Just post a comment with your first name and I will pray for you. Lets not try to do this thing called life first without God and secondly without each other.

I leave you today with this, “I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God. for He has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of His righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.” Isaiah 61:10.  Are you delighting greatly in the Lord no matter what circumstances come your way? I am praying for you that you answered yes! Love you my sweet friends. See you next time!
