Battles To Win

Pensive moments have been encountered around the table as we process the moment by moment life of a dear friend who has suffered severe brain damage due to a stroke. She lies in a nearby hospital fighting for life. We wrestle in prayer for her healing, and for her chance to live. Helping young people comprehend such a vicissitude is challenging, especially when one has not quite grasped all that is happening oneself.

I spent some time at her bedside last night. Many have faithfully stood there just like me, holding her hand, looking into her eyes, reminding her of their love and His faithfulness. She is surrounded by witnesses of her desire to be well, her will to survive. We persevere in prayer and supplication -- not for her soul. That is a settled matter. Grateful beyond words am I to know of a surety that she will gain eternity with Him -- but for her physical healing.

Pray with us. Linda is her name.

Praying and trying to understand what is beyond my understanding. Oh how I wish I could make Linda speak and not just say but yell " I am here and I want to live".

You know that passage where Jesus speaks to the women who are weeping, when He is being crucified. He tells them to weep, just not for Him. Prayer, fasting, praising God, weeping for others. . .there is power in all of these acts. I will be praying for this dear sister.
