I have been following the progress of one of my friend’s little girls this week as she battles sickness in the hospital. I cannot begin to imagine how my friend and her husband and the rest of their family felt as they watched this little girl in the hospital bed. We praise the Lord that she is doing better and continue to pray for her recovery.
We have so much love for our little ones and it reminded me of how much love God has for us in that He sent His ONLY son to die for us. How that must have ripped God’s heart in two to see Him hanging on that cross. We can, as parents, only begin to imagine what that would feel like. Our love can never compare to it.
As I anticipate the arrival of my own little one and the terrors that have already come, I know that I can trust the Lord with this precious life. He is in control, just as He proved with my friend’s little girl.
