No Matter What

Three days and counting until we are all so stuffed and miserable!  

Hope you had a good day.  Pat felt a little better this morning and went into work for a bit, although I am not sure he felt up to it, but he was home by 11:30 AM.  His fever went down as we prayed, but he has a headache tonight.  

Today I worked from home and went to a Celebration of Life today for a friend's father.   Her father had been battling Alzheimer's for several years and her journey has been a tough one.  As I was driving away from the graveside, I felt encouraged.  She stood before her guests today and shared with us just how faithful God is and how she was able to get through each day with prayer, God's Word and just trusting Him.   She allowed God to be the conductor and she described her journey as a train going through a dark tunnel.  Just because it was dark, she couldn't just jump from he train because she was scared.   She had to trust the conductor as the conductor knows all about the dark tunnels and what is ahead. Lana, I may have not gotten your beautiful story down just as you shared, but I got your message...I am trusting the conductor!  I pray God's comfort and peace for you and your family in the days ahead. 

I am reminded of the following song that is on Christian radio. When it first came out and I heard the words I really liked it and even downloaded it.  And I do remember thinking to myself, this song really doesn't describe anything going on in my life right now, but I love this song!   The description soon fit.   Here are the lyrics of "No Matter What" by Kerrie Roberts.  

I’m running back to Your promises one more time
Lord that’s all I can hold on to
I gotta say this has taken me by surprise, but nothing surprises You
Before a heartache can ever touch my life
It has to go through Your hands
And even though I keep asking why, I keep asking why
No matter what, I’m gonna love you
No matter what I’m gonna need You
I know You can find a way to keep me from the pain
But if not, if not, I’ll trust You no matter what, no matter what
When I’m stuck in this nothingness by myself
I’m just sitting in silence
There’s no way I can make it without Your help, I won’t even try it
I know You have Your reasons for everything so I will keep believing
Whatever I might be feeling, God You are my hope
And You will be my strength
Anything I don’t have You can give it to me, but it’s OK if You don’t
I’m not here for those things
The touch of Your love is enough on its own
No matter what I still love You and I’m gonna need You
No matter what I’m gonna love You, no matter what I’m gonna need You
I know You can find a way to keep me from the pain
But if not, if not, I’ll trust You
I know You can find a way to keep me from the pain
But if not, but if not, I’ll trust You
No matter what
No matter no matter what
No matter no matter what
No mater no matter what

No matter what, Lord
