I was thinking back to how God has perfect timing. When I was going through my depression and getting my prescription never in my life did I think I would be going through the road I'm on now. But.... The Lord is good. A stronghold in the day of trouble.
Thinking back over this past week. My, what a blur. Sunday my daughter had a pretty high fever. One that had lasted about 4 days. So I asked DH to take her to the e.r. The doctor sent us home after taking her blood and doing some research to have us take her to an appt. with a pediatrician.
Her pediatrician referred her to a hospital 3 hours away for us to have a bone marrow test done. The Lord is good. Allowed me to get help to deal with my depression, restored my Joy all the while giving me His perfect peace and reminding me to not be worried, pray, intercede on daughters behalf and he would provide the peace I needed.
So, Tuesday the 8th of July brought us to more testing only to find out our daughter Faith has childhood leukemia. We have 9 children, 2 of which are married and on their own. So we had to make some decisions and find homes for our children to stay for awhile while we took Faith to the hospital. We're taking things one day at a time. The Lord has been so gracious to take care of each thing thats come up.
Darling Husband and I have taken turns being there for Faith as well as getting one on one time with each of our children. The Lord has been so good to allow us time to re-connect with each of them through all of this.
There's been concerns along the way but the Lord has been a stronghold. We continue to trust Him and acknowlege Him asking for His wisdom.
We've seen Him find a home for our children in the process, provide the finances for gas, meals, diapers, right down to a phone my huband needs to communicate with me and pj's/ and a Happy Meal for Faith to enjoy during her stay. He knows our need. He knows us better than ourselves.
Our youngest celebrates his 1st birthday and we'll be traveling down to see Faith and enjoy time with the family together.
Waiting to see where the Lord leads us and watching to see what the Lord has in store for our family.
He has a plan for us. I know it as I think back to the verse in Jeremiah where He says He has a good plan for us. Not one to harm us but for our good.
