My Daddy's Passing
My sweet Daddy went home to be with the Lord March 21...six months and 11 days after my dear mother passed on to be with Jesus. These past weeks I have had alot of issues to deal with, anxiety being one of them. But through it all, I have felt God's sustaining power. Isaiah 46:6 has been the Scripture that has helped the most throughout Daddy's illness and hospital stay, and I asked our preacher to include it in his message at the funeral, and he did. "Even to your old age and gray hairs, I am He. I am He who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you. I will sustain you and I will rescue you." (NIV) He sustained my daddy and rescued him and He sustained me and held me together when I didn't think I could take much more. Great is His faithfulness.
