Tori had an appointment with her PT on Monday and she told us they would prefer her to be in a wheelchair instead of a stroller until she is able to walk, I cried right there in therapy. I find it so hard not to feel sorry for myself sometimes but I have to live in reality about our situation if I am going to help my child in the best way possible. It is hard not to feel sorry for yourself when you are constantly reminded you have a disabled child. Lord please give me strength and peace today!
I wanted to pass on some of the scriptures I read today that gave me hope and reminded me that God loves me infinitely and is at work in my situation. I especially love verse 20.
In Whom, because of our faith in Him, we dare to have the boldness (courage and confidence) of free access (an unreserved approach to God with freedom and without fear). (Ephesians 3:12 AMP)
May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the [Holy] Spirit [Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality]. May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love, That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God’s devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it]; [That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]! 20 Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]– To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen (so be it). (Ephesians 3:16-21 AMP)
I pray that I (and you) will be constantly reminded of God’s love for us today and this knowledge will give us true joy and peace in the midst of our struggles.
