Going down the expressway, her screams became louder and more piercing. She couldn’t stop. She was beyond overwhelmed. She could not put into words how she felt. All she could do was scream. One long scream after the other as she drove.
“Jesus!” “Jesus!” “Help my child Jesus!”
Tears flowed down her face as she tried to keep her focus on the road. The information she received devastated her. How was she going to get through her workday with this newest development?
It was out of her hands. She had nothing to hold on to but her faith. Her prayers became groans of such deep pain. She felt so helpless. She could not see the answers with her human eyes. This was something only God could do.
Sleep was hard to come by during those early morning hours. She tossed and turned while her thoughts raced. Nearing her work place, she wiped her tears hoping no one would notice her blushed face from crying.
As the day wore on she was pre-occupied with her job. She was thankful it kept her mind from wandering about the words she heard the night before.
With her workday done, she readied herself for home. Home to what? She dreaded what was to meet her at the door; emotions of hurt, despair, sadness, and more. She couldn’t fathom calling anyone to expose her heart to the pain she was dealing with. She knew well enough that she would choke with tears on her own words trying to explain. So she wept in silence.
Soon her husband arrived and met her in the kitchen. Hands reaching out before each other, they grabbed tightly and began to pray as they sobbed with brokenness. With their prayers barely audible through the tears, they stopped and embraced each other as if they had nothing else to hold on to.
Deep within their hearts, they surrendered their child to God. He was in control now. They couldn’t fix the situation. This was the biggest test of faith. They prayed and hoped that they would pass.
Today, many parents are in severe cases of crisis like they have never seen before. They are left feeling hopeless, weakened and broken. Some are so in despair that they scream out to God in utter helplessness.
Those who endure, find their strength through these key elements; intercessory prayer, using the Word of God to break strongholds, giving thanks in all circumstances, and having the faith to stand strong in the midst of the storm that comes.
It is not always easy. But I promise you this…You will find courage to get you through the difficult days ahead and a peace that man cannot give. No matter how big the storm, God will meet you there in the midst of it. You will find that you are not alone as you ride out the emotional waves that comes with a crisis. Remember, that Christ is a our great storm whisperer when we cry out to Him. So, put your faith in HIM today!
