The Best Place to Be

Today is the day.

She will have the test.

I cannot be with her, this beautiful woman forever connected to my soul.

I wish I could sit by her side.

Gently hold her hand.

Offer her some kind of peace as she walks through this storm.

There is a helpless feeling that goes along with watching someone we love so dearly go through something so painful.

Maybe you know that feeling.

Maybe the person you love isn’t facing a health crisis.

Maybe they are going through a divorce, the loss of a loved one, financial problems or addiction.

The pain we face takes many different forms.

We want to be with those who are connected to our souls.

Sit by their sides.

Gently hold their hands.

Offer them some kind of peace as they walk through the storm.

But even when we cannot sit with those we love, we can lift them up to the One who never leaves their side.

The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Philippians 4 : 5 -7

I am grateful that when I cannot be there, I know that He always will be.

My feelings of helplessness turn to hope.

Father, I know today you are with her.

You are connected to her soul.

May she feel You sitting by her side,

Gently holding her hand.

I pray she feels the peace You offer as she walks through this storm.

May the love and prayers we offer to those we love and hold so dearly carry them through the storms of life.

Pray to the One who never leaves their side or ours.

Amen.
