God of My Everything

A couple weeks ago, our Pastor at church talked about the story of Lazarus. Mary & Martha wanted Jesus to come & heal their brother. He showed up...FOUR days too late & it made Mary really mad at Jesus. Martha went to meet Jesus when He came & said, if only you would have come sooner. You could have saved him. They gave up. They figured it was too late. Jesus says, your brother will rise again & Martha says, "I know he'll rise again in the resurrection at the last day". Jesus said to her, "I AM the resurrection and the life." Long story short, Jesus heals Lazarus & raises him from the dead. FOUR days after 'it was too late'.

We keep having these apts & they're so depressing. The fluid has doubled, or everything looks the same or worse, etc. But, I can't give up. I have been believing that God CAN do this miracle. After our last appointment, I thought, it's too late. God isn't going to change this. Lazarus was dead for FOUR days. Layla's been sick for weeks, she's alive. Her heart is beating. It's not too late. God CAN & He WILL do this for us.

Jesus says, "I AM ________". He is whatever you think you need. He is money, health, love, a better marriage, children. Fill in the blank for yourself. Whatever you need...Jesus says, I AM that.

I've been thinking about this, & heard these lyrics.

God of my hope, God of my need
God of my pain that no one else will ever see
God of my healing, God of my strength
God who has always and will forever reign
God of my everything

Most of time, I don't know what to pray for. My list gets too long. I just know that God is my everything. Whatever it is that I need.

I can SEE her playing with Kylie and Layla playing and laughing. Kylie teaching Layla how to dress up and feed "babies."
You are in our prayers and thoughts!
