I posted the following on my page over on this site:
Rest Ministries Sun Room
I've really been struggling today with that familiar black cloud that descends all too frequently. The continuous grey weather does not help, it dampens one's spirits and aggravates the pain.
Then of course there is the fact that once again I'm working the night shift attempting to stabilise a diabetic condition that truly has a mind of its own. The nine year old boy (where did the time go?) who is the bearer of such a condition is blissfully unaware of the night time trials and tribulations as he snores peacefully in his bed.
On and off throughout the course of today I have truly wondered "Where is God?" and "Does He truly care?" My prayer life has hit an all time low and there are many days when I fail to acknowledge His presence, so it is little wonder that the spiritual well is dry! However, God is good and as a result of something which happened only five minutes ago, He made himself known to me in a very tangible way.
Pip our youngest woke with a bad dream and I quickly made my way to her room to re-settle her, as I sat by her bed pondering my negative thoughts a "voice" inside my head reminded me of this passage of scripture from Isaiah:
Can a mother forget her nursing child? Can she feel no love for the child she has borne? But even if that were possible, I would not forget you! See, I have written your name on the palms of my hands
Thank you God for those loving and encouraging words at a time when I needed them most.
