Staying In Continual Communication by Susan Browder
“And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groaning’s that cannot be expressed in words.” Romans 8:26
Thank you all for meeting me hear each Tuesday to see the abundant blessings that are woven into our difficulties each day. Today I am looking back to January of 2015, which is four months after his injury.
Jacob has enjoyed deer season and duck season. This is what he always has looked forward to but especially now it is something he is so thankful for. Still having double vision, Jacob wears an eye patch so that he only sees one deer or one duck.
Every day I stay in continual communication with God. I thank God daily for healing and continually ask him to restore Jacob the way that he made him. I can visually see God jumping up and down and waving his hands at me and shouting, “I hear you…” Staying in continually communication gave me so much peace. I had never talked to God so much in my life.
“And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19
Every day as I began to seek God, he spoke to me through scripture. I would go back to what Romans 8:26 says daily and continued to cry out. Our family can testify that this works today, not just biblical times. We began to see a glorious unfolding of healing. I remember getting so excited about Jacob walking better, talking better, using his right side, and many other things. Then I would hear another person say, “My child got their license today!” “My son is going on a date.” “My child is visiting colleges.” For a moment, I felt anger and frustration, then my peace would return and I reminded myself, that one day, not today, but a day is coming when all of this will come full circle and a plan for Jacob will be revealed.
But for right now, life is hard, tiring, and heavy at school. Jacob is ready to graduate and be done with high school at this time and is just in the 10th grade. Things are not the same for Jacob and people don’t know how to handle that so they just removed themselves. This is the most difficult time. I am just going to leave that there. I just continued to trust God that there must be a reason.
