Phil 4:6-8, for when it pours

Today I need this. I thought I'd share it in case you do too.
We had a bout with food poisoning over the weekend. My husband is still battling it.
My baby is still fighting bronchitis after 7 weeks of treatments and her ears are still blazing with infection, which we are hoping will clear now as she starts her 3rd round of antibiotics.
One or more of our party of 5 has been sick since mid-January.
...
I got word that my Nana was being taken off life support today, 10 hours away.
I can't imagine not being at her funeral. I can't travel with or part from my sick infant.
My sister-in-law said it well, "when it rains, it pours".
.....
Our plates are full, as life moves on.
Some exciting answers to prayers we've been sending up for years have come our way in the midst of this.
The timing, uncanny.
We need supernatural provision to be good stewards of these blessings.

God has been faithful.
His peace will sustain us.
His power will heal us.
"‘This is what the Lord, the God of your father David, says: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears; I will heal you." 2 Kings 20:4
His grace will get us through.
"But he said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me." 2 Cor 12:9

  2. Ugh. May God receive the glory, somehow!

    We quote the "whatever is true...whatever is..." verse for our scared kids at night too.
