Just about a month ago, I wrote on this topic
It included the words to the song In the Morning When I Rise…
And coincidentally was set to be posted the morning Ron had his stroke.
Wow! A lot has changed since then.
I have been surrounded by many loving hands
Seen the touch of GOD in many tender ways
Waited, waited and waited…
For results of tests, to see what the outcome of the stroke will be…
That wait isn’t over yet. We won’t really know for a year.
After 6 months, we’ll have a good idea.
Now, we’re in the process of waiting for his brain to heal as well as retraining it too!
Getting into a routine, finding a new normal, and
Continuing therapies are all part of the plan. STOP
And as we wait, I’m learning to trust Jesus in new ways.
As the song says, In the morning when I rise, give me Jesus.
When life gets complicated like it has, the simple things seem most important.
Give me Jesus.
I remember thinking when I first wrote the article,
That I don’t simply want Jesus often enough.
That is changing.
Praying that God will heal your husband. Thank you for giving testimony to how your rise. What an encouragement.
He is healing my husband. It is definitely a process, but it is happening. I’m glad you have been encouraged amy:)
Sorry to hear about Ron’s stroke. I’m encouraged by the progress he’s making and the fact that he’s home with you. Jesus is there with you on every step of this journey. He’s there, in every emotion and frustration and giggle. Keep seeking Him when you rise each morning and He’ll keep revealing himself to you.
thanks sabrina. i have definitely found that to be true! it has been amazing:)
Hello Mrs. Martha. I’m stopping in from Fellowship Fridays.
I have learned to appreciate the old hymns. I am in the same boat with simply not wanting Jesus enough. How amazing when He starts to change that in us. 😀
yes cyndi! and He goes about it in the most interesting ways. usually it happens as we become more aware of our own weakness and need somewhere. that has truly been happening this year!
Such a great hymn. I love that the word prompt is taking many of us to hymns and songs. I pray that every morning Jesus is there to help you through this new transition.
thanks tara. yes, He is…most definitely. and Ron is improving each day as well!
thanks joanne. he continues to improve. not only that, this experience is changing us each day…and that is the blessing of it isn’t it?
Martha, I clicked over because this song was the first thought in my mind as well when I saw the word prompt 🙂 May Jesus continue to give you & Ron all that you need as you rise to meet with Him each morning. Praying & agreeing with you, for God to bring full healing to your husband. Blessings!
