Faith Journey (7)

Four months after my mother died, my son broke his neck in a diving accident. We drove all night and arrived at the hospital in the morning. I was so relieved to see my son and learn that he could move his legs.
The doctor told us that my son would need to wear a special device on his head for three months to keep his neck from moving. But at the end of the three months, the doctor said we would have to wait another month. I was very disappointed. I didn’t want to wait any longer!
Once again, God gave me peace and patience. He helped me understand that things would work out okay. Maybe that is how the writer of our Bible verses felt when he wrote, “Lord, you lifted me out of my troubles. You have changed my sorrow into dancing” (verses 1a and 11a).
No matter what you will face today, remember to always depend on God and keep your faith growing.
