Yesterday was a “hairy scary” day with Mom. She got extremely upset as she “thought” something had happened to my sister, and once again in her mind, my sister was a “little girl.” She had to “go and get her.” “My sister was in trouble.” Mom begin to change clothes and anxiety was not even the word for it!
We tried to explain to her the “truth” of the matter, which only angered her greatly. When she got mad at my Dad and me, she refused to take her medication for the anxiety for almost two hours. So this went on for a while.
All I could do was in silent prayer over and over say, “God please help us?” “God please help her?” While doing this, my mind begin to flow back to my blog and the post I did asking for “Prayer for my Mom.”
All I could see were all the “like” hits, and the “comments” letting me know we were being prayed for. The words begin to flood my soul, “I am praying for you and your family.” All of a sudden “peace” begin to come, as I knew through your many prayers I was “not alone.” I had people loving and praying for me and my family, and “we” were not alone. I also realised, “God was hearing those prayers, and would answer them.” Within thirty minutes of these thoughts, Mom begin to “calm” and we were able to give to her the medication she needed. She went to working her puzzle and reading her magazines.
I can do “nothing” without God. He is the answer to all “problems.” He is compassionate and knows when the “breaking point” is being reached. I also could do “nothing” without your “prayers” and “compassion.”
A lot of the time we think the words, “I will pray for you,” mean nothing. Yesterday these “words” were my very “calm in my storm.” They were my “strength in my weakness.” They were my “joy in my sorrow.” They were my “love in my Mom’s anger.”
The wonderful thing about being God’s children, is how “we give God to others in their time of need.” All of you gave God to me in five little words. “I will pray for you.”
Have a great weekend and God Bless, SR
