When hope hides …

  1. Ps 42.5-11 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance. O my God, my soul is cast down within me: …Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me. Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life. I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy? As with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while they say daily unto me, Where is thy God? Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.

  2. Hey Julie,
    I’m so glad I came across your post and could join you in prayer for Jackson. I was a middle school nurse for eighteen years–as well as a mother to two sons– like you. I feel the anguish you had for him and the need for God to reach to your adolescent son and pull him out of the ‘miry pit.’
    Prayers for him and all of you as God continues to give his Hope and Light.

    1. Oh Connie, thank you doesn’t seem like enough. I think it is just beautiful how God leads us to carry burdens for others. Thank you for coming alongside us. My heart is full as I read this today. Blessings to and over you, Julie


  3. “When God reveals His power to swiftly answer prayer, we should be thank-full.” How wonderful that through every challenge and issues we face, especially in the area of parenting, we can trust ABBA’s answer to our prayers. I’m glad He answered yours speedily. I will keep you, Jackson and the rest of the family in prayers. ♥️

    1. OHhh thank you sister. Jackson is going through so much. I am very thankful for those praying for him and us. Just found out today how God moved his MRI for the knee to tomorrow (was originally scheduled 11-21). Praise His Holy Loving Name! Please let me know how I may lift you and yours up, Dee.
