2) Solid as a Rock - When Life
“Oh Lord, preserve my faith. Preserve my faith, O Lord!” I found myself praying that prayer—again. You see my husband, Bob, of 32 years, fainted and fell October of 2013; he sustained a traumatic brain injury. Twelve days later my mother died. My world
crumbled. The grief was unbearable. I thought I would die of a broken heart. During those dark days it was almost impossible to think, let alone pray. Most days I could only utter, “Jesus.” Of course I also asked God to heal Bob. But I found myself praying, “Oh God, preserve my faith.” I wrestled and struggled with doubts about what I believed. But where else could I go? Who else could I turn to? Who else is there besides the Lord? And who else has opened the gates of heaven to sinful mortal souls, and holds the words of eternal life?
Then God in his providence preserved my husband’s life and over the course of seven months brought him back from death’s door. Bob still has many physical and mental deficits. Even so, he has made much progress, and this gives me hope! But it is not clear whether or not he will be completely restored on this side of heaven. I question, “Are you there Lord? Do you care?”
