LGLG ~ Let Go & Let GOD!


You know how hard this is during this difficult time??? EXTREMELY! But we are trusting God has mom in His right hand!

Mom is having a MRI right now because of intelligible speech.  Mom has had spells where her speech becomes muddled.  She is aware of what she is saying but her ability to articulate it is difficult.  The spells didn’t last too long and were one time a day until yesterday.  The doctors, nurses and therapists told us this is normal for a brain injury.  But yesterday it happened more frequently and lasted longer than five minutes – of course we are worried.  After talking to the doctor this morning, they scheduled the MRI. Yesterday she had a CT scan and it came back normal.  In fact they said her brain looks much better.  We are grateful for this but we need answers for this new development.  Something is going on and we need to know what!  We are on the right track now.  I will update more on this issue once I know.

As I sit in the MRI waiting room I started searching for images showing God is in control. During my search, I found this on the Suzels Says blog (http://suzelssays.blogspot.com/2012/03/let-go-and-know-that-god-is-in-control.html):

Let Go and Know that GOD is in Control

My cousin, Katie, once told me this. “Sometimes I’m happy life is hard because it’s during the hard times that you become closer to God. If we were all honest in our faith, we would pray for trials and tribulations so we can grow closer to Him.”

Wow- talk about how much trust you need to have in your God to actually be able to pray for something like that to happen. When you have heartache, let go and know that God is in control.

Just a thought.

Another Godincidence…He knew I need this today! Thank you Lord!  Mom and our family are TAYLOR STRONG!  We are trusting and putting LGLG practice.

    When my husband was so ill I kept listening to Twyla Paris sing ‘God is in Control’ over and over again. “This is no time for fear/This is the time for faith and determination”… “God is in control/We believe that His children will not be forsaken…”. AMEN!!! Love you Trish, and praying for your mom.

    • Thanks so much Cindy! I will download the song! I can always use another one to listen to have run to as well. I appreciate your kind words of encouragement!!! Love you and hope you are doing well! Trish

  2. When I was in high school, I sang this song many times with a guitar accoppaniment. I x-stitched it for my Mom one time. Can’t remember who or where it came from, but all of the words just came from my heart and mind again. Hope they can be an encouragement to you as they have for me, many times over!!! Know that you are loved and prayed for!

    ” A Weaving”

    My life is but a Weaving
    between the Lord and me.
    I cannot choose the colors.
    He worketh steadily.

    Oft times He weaveth sorrow
    and I in foolish pride,
    forget He sees the upper,
    and I the underside.

    {– The dark threads are as needful in the Weaver’s skillful hand,
    as the threads of Gold and Silver in the pattern He has planned. –}

    Not til the loom is silent,
    and the shuttles cease to fly,
    will God unveil the canvas,
    and explain the reasons why . . . .

    My life is but a Weaving
    between the Lord and me.
    I cannot choose the colors
    He worketh steadily. . . . !

    • I can not say thanks enough for these words of encouragement. I tell people all the time I can not wait to get to heaven and turn over the tapestry of my life. I can’t wait to see how God makes all the connections! So, I LOVE this song!!!! YOu are such a sweetheart and I thank you for your prayers! 🙂 Love yoU!

  3. The Bible says God comforts us in our troubles so that we can comfort others (2 Corinthians 1:3-5). One way we comfort others is to offer them hope in the midst of hard times . When we read testimonies of God’s faithfulness to other Christians who have struggled through hardships, we gain courage to keep on believing, trusting, and not lose faith.
