I’d like to read to you some posts that were daily updates from a family whose daughter, Kayleigh, was fighting brain tumors. They were made while they were waiting for their 7-year-old daughter to die. These are the words of Kayleigh’s mother, ‘Carrow.
“Being human is a difficult thing. Kayleigh's distress brought me to my knees quickly. Even once the storm passed for her I found myself lost in my own storm. Grief and fear. Kayleigh suffering, Kayleigh afraid - those are my fears and oh how it tore out my heart. I've spent hours tonight battling my human desires to doubt and worry. Doubt and worry have no place here….but I know my God is good. As I sat and read His word I found rest. As I listened to music it brought me comfort. And the perfect devotion at the right moment helped me shake lose and grab hold of His peace again.
Learning to rest in the Lord is hard. But that is my choice. I am going to rest in Him and continue to trust that He knows what is best for all of us. And in all of that He grants me peace.” —Jim L. Wilson and James Whitten
Psalm 91:1–2 (HCSB) “The one who lives under the protection of the Most High dwells in the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say to the LORD, ‘My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.’”
