Isaiah 41:10

I dreamt of my parents last night, in my dreams I keep hugging them and telling them I love them. When I woke up this morning I texted my father and asked how are they doing, he sent me a sad text saying that my mom is sick and they are both feeling weak and that they both consumed all their meds already. I felt bad and sad because the last time I saw them was Christmas and I missed them terribly. I was worried (again) and began to pray.

I didn't call right away because I knew I will be crying over the phone and I do not want them to hear me cry. Instead I made arrangements (thank God I have good friends) and borrowed  their ministry van to go to ouyr home province and pick them up and bring them to my sister's house. BUT..when I finally talked to them and told them I'm going home tonight and picking them up, they refused and told me I will just waste money. I was like whaaat?

I do not understand why they wouldn't want to be here with us. I was left with no choice but to obey them.I lifted them to the Lord and asked for comfort and peace (because I've been crying the whole time in the office) when it comes to my parents I'm a cry baby. My sister also told me not to worry that much anymore and I was reminded of my devotion last night.

Isaiah 41:10 says
"So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."

I immediately whispered "Thank You Lord" and I felt peaceful. I will not be afraid and be worried that something bad might happen to mom because I know the Lord will help me and have heard my prayer for them.

But of course I still miss them that much and I will definitely go home and visit them the soonest possible time. And I called a relative to go and check on them from time to time. :)

Now I can search about prevage elizabeth argen prevage in peace and read and sleep well knowing that my the Lord is protecting my parents.

It is so hard to live hundred miles away from your loved ones no?
