We have a family member that is ill.
They have been in the hospital for quite some time and their condition has been a matter of prayer through these past days and weeks.
When an illness strikes, it can be overwhelming.
What about treatment?
What about medications?
Which hospital is best?
What doctor should be chosen?
Yesterday and today were especially trying with a lot of details as our family member is being transferred to another hospital.
As I was driving down the highway just before sunset, I suddenly saw a rainbow in front of me.
I stopped the car at a local business and got out to take some photos of the glowing arc in the sky.
Driving a little further, I stopped again—this time at a service station near a lake.
Because it was so beautiful, I just had to have more pictures!
While I was looking at the rainbow, “Everlasting God” by Chris Tomlin came on the radio.
I started singing along, agreeing in my heart that God truly is the everlasting God.
He comforts those in need.
Our family is in need right now.
I am reminded that God will meet our needs as our hope is in Him.
You are the everlasting God,
The everlasting God,
You do not faint, You won’t grow weary
You’re the defender of the weak
You comfort those in need,
You lift us up on wings like eagles
Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord…
He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
