I am writing this in the midst of great emotional stress. Scott’s mom has been in the hospital since last Thursday afternoon. It has been a very long scenario but we’ve been on a true emotional rollercoaster since this started. From suspected TIA (mini-strokes), bouncing back and having a great day, attending Scott’s nephew’s wedding and then back to the brink of death, God has been there every step of the way. I have no idea what the purpose of going up and down like this is; it can’t be good for Mrs. Granholm’s 86-year-old body. But one thing I am confident of; God has it in his hands.
If there is one thing I have learned in my life, it’s that we must leave it in God’s hands at some point. Times like these make that abundantly clear to me. As stressful as it is, I have a peace about Scott’s mom because time and again in my life, people do get through things like this. His mom is a strong-willed, if not strong in body now. Regardless of whether the outcome is good or bad, God knows what he’s doing. When you fully grasp this, trust it and don’t try to figure out the reasons, you will find amazing peace. God has a plan, oh yes he does! Of that you can rest assured!
