For me it was very very difficult, I like to know what I am dealing with and how it is going to affect the outcome. I need to process, reflect and discern if this is the right thing to do. Having that part taken away is so frightening when it affects your child or someone you love. Where do you turn when you no longer have the ability to be peaceful of your own accord.
The Ultimate Peacemaker is the Lord of my life, it is He who determines the next steps that happen. He knows everything that will happen in my life, and is well aware of the past and present. He is enough ...... for yesterday, today and tomorrow.
I do not know how people journey through life with devastating loss, horrific changes and mind boggling events. I would not be able to navigate through my life without the confidence I can have in His peacefulness for my life.
Over the last few months I have been following the story of Baby Hope and the incredible journey of her mom and dad as they deal with a very sick newborn. Her mom's blog is so inspirational and heart changing that you will never want to miss a posting. Many have been praying for Hope and her heart condition around the globe. If you pray, you need to pray for this family - it is the prayers of His people that are keeping this family going. Today her mom posted about surrendering her baby to the surgeons, as they discuss next steps in Hope's care. Her surrender is based on releasing all of this story to God, she knows He loves her and her baby. He is enough for all of Hope's little life and more.... pray for this wee one. She is changing the hearts of everyone she touches, one beat at a time.
