When I See Things Go Wrong and I Feel Powerless

(from The Prayer that Changes Everything by Stormie Omartian)

"Lord, I praise Your name. I exalt You above all things. You are my King and Lord. In the midst of everything that is happening in my life and all that I am going through, I know that You are the all-powerful God of the universe. Hide me in Your secret place in my time of struggle. Lift me high upon a rock so that I may rise above the plans of my enemies to surround me with problems. I will sing and offer You the sacrifice of praise (Psalm 2:5-6). You are my help, and I will hide myself in You. I praise You for all that You are. "My soul follows close behind You; Your right hand upholds me" (Psalm 63:8).

"Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to teh extent that you partake of Christ's sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy." 1 Peter 4:12-13

I've been thinking about you all weekend! We're here in the "city" visiting hubby's parents...and have you and all the other mommies that are without their babies heavy on my heart.

You aren't alone in your grief today or any of the days to come,
