God’s Grace

My first grandson was born on Thursday January 16 at 8:07 in the morning.  He was 7 lbs and 1 oz.  He was over 24 hours in the uterus after the water broke and he had a bowel movement while in there.  He was born with a rash so they whisked him away and he ha been on antibiotics through an iv ever since.  Ethan and Eighmy have been able to hold him and nurse him and love on him.  We have not.  We have only seen him through the glass.  The in-house lab cultures came back negative for everything.  We now wait on the blood test. 

Well, I lost center for a few days.  I have empty arm syndrome, but God is still on His throne.  He still cares for us and baby Tyler.  His comfort through His people and His Word has been amazing.  He has shown Dad and I the same concept from His Word in two different books of the Bible.  He has given us a song, a sermon, and a Sunday school lesson, and through all of these, He has been right here with us.  His presence has been felt.  Today I am humbled because of my unbelief and God’s faithfulness.  I rejoiced to read all of Psalm 103, but escpecially verses 13 and 14.

“Just as a father has compassion on his children,

So the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him.
For He Himself knows our frame;
He is mindful that we are but dust.”

Praise the Lord!  Praise Him for His compassion and mercy and grace and forgiveness; for His love and His faithfulness.
