Help Me, Oh Lord!


Help Me, Oh Lord!

The past two days I’ve struggled with coming up for a topic for this blog post. I’ve prayed for something to come to me, but honestly my mind has been very distracted.

You see, in two days I will be having extensive foot surgery. A 4 ½ inch incision, and three weeks off of work, has had me a little preoccupied.

And then there’s the fact that my sister’s best friend, who is only a few years older than me, is dying of cancer. Tomorrow she will be having surgery to insert a feeding tube. The cancer has consumed her, and the doctors are just trying to give her some type of quality of life.

Also, my dear friend’s daughter was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes this fall. This sweet girl’s blood sugar numbers are jumping all over the place, and her parents are at a loss. I’m not sure anyone in the family has gotten a decent night’s sleep in months.

“This poor man called, and the LORD heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles,” Psalm 34:6.

I’m calling to you, Lord! My heart is so heavy, and I feel so helpless. Thank you for hearing my cries, Lord, and thank you for never leaving me. I pray for all of those hurting, and I ask that your peace rest squarely upon them.
