Yesterday was a big turning point for us as Mike began having trouble with breathing and showing more signs of "end of life". He is now given morphine when needed and has a pain patch which is keeping him comfortable. Only our Heavenly Father knows if we have hours or days...yet we trust in His good plan for Mike.
My devotion this morning was a great reminder. It focused on Proverbs 19:21 "Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails." What is God's purpose in all this? No one would want this outcome for their dear friend, brother, son, Uncle or Dad... and yet we trust that God does have a purpose and that He is still our Good Father...despite our sadness in saying goodbye to this incredible man!💕 A song that spoke to Mike this summer was, "Goodness of God" by Bethel. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=n0FBb6hnwTo We listened/watched this live recording and Mike was so moved. He said "WOW" and a few other words as he cried listening to this song. If my brother Mike can still claim God's GOODNESS through all his sufferings...I know he would want his loved ones to do the same!
Thanks again for continued prayers. We feel them!
