"For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith--that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God."Ephesians 3:14-19
The only time that Ian was really awake today was when I was reading this scripture to him and praying. I was lifting Ian and myself up to God, praying that he would give us just another glimpse of the beadth, length, height and depth of His love. God's word is so good and will never return void. I am so thankful for the opportunity to remind Ian of God's beautiful promises.
I desperately want to hear Ian tell me something, anything, of where he has been for the past four months. I want assurance that my boyfriend is able to feel the nearness of the Lord. I want to know that he is not lonely but can feel God with him at all times. But he can't tell me, and this is just one more area where faith enters the picture. And as Ben said in such a great way, if Ian is conscious and is aware of things, then God is definitely with him, because He promises that He will never leave nor forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). And even if Ian is just sleeping and won't even remember this time, God is still with him.
Keep praying that Ian comes back. I desperately want him back here with us.
