We are too tired to weep, too busy praying to sleep.We are minute by minute depending on the Lord for strength and deliverance.
The best part of the rains?
They’re followed by rainbows.
We’re living for the promise of the rainbow, upheld by the victorious right hand of our loving Lord and strengthened by the prayers of His beautiful people.
The Lord gave both my husband and I the same verse this morning when we awoke feeling the burden is too great to bear.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
So, we’re learning to lay that burden down, but still waiting, praying and pleading for Sweet Deliverance.

Mindy,I had no idea you were going through such a trial. I am so sorry. I hope when things calm down that you will be able to give us a few more details. Sorry it is so hard. Praying.
Thinking of you and praying for you as I drove home (encouraged from the Youth Conference) today, Momma Mindy!! Listened to ..The Anchor Holds on drive home.I have journeyedThrough the long, dark nightOut on the open seaBy faith aloneSight unknownAnd yet His eyes were watching meCHORUS:The anchor holdsThough the ship is batteredThe anchor holdsThough the sails are tornI have fallen on my kneesAs I faced the raging seasThe anchor holdsIn spite of the stormIve had visionsIve had dreamsIve even held them in my handBut I never knewThey would slip right throughLike they were only grains of sandCHORUSI have been youngBut I am older nowAnd there has been beautyThat these eyes have seenBut it was in the nightThrough the storms of my lifeOh, thats where God provedHis love to meEncouraged by this verse Scott DeGroff spoke and hope you are too!I will never leave you or forsake you…= I am your strong support and will never walk away from you!

Praying that you will be seeing the rainbows soon!I've been reading/learning in Revelation about overcomers. Go look at those promises to the overcomers and be encouraged.
Dear MindyI don't usually wake in the night, but I did last night and was praying for you then. And am still doing so whenever the Lord reminds me during the day – so while it is nighttime at your home, it is daytime here in NZ, and I can pray while you are sleeping.
God had a cousin send the words to the hymn How Firm a Foundation to me, today. They were such an encouragement to my heart so I'll pass on a couple of them to you. "When through the deep waters I call thee to go, the rivers of sorrow shall not overflow. For I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless. And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress."When through fiery trials thy pahtway shall lie, My grace, all sufficient, shall be thy supply. The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine."The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose, I will not, I will not, desert to his foes; That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake, I'll never, no, never, no never forsake!'Praying still! Love you!
I keep thinking of the line (of a song) "just, because it's raining – dosen't mean the sun's not there…".Continueing to pray for you and yours.

MM – I don't know what your trial is, but I have tears in my eyes from reading the heartbreak in your post. I will lift you up in prayer, you can count on it. ——————-Father in Heaven, creator of family, and great physician, we lift our friend Mindy to you. You alone know the depths of pain her family is enduring right now. You alone have power over this hurt. I thank you, Lord, for your promise to carry our burdens. Please lift this from their shoulders. Allow healing, rejoicing, and peace to fill their souls. AMEN
