"...But you are near, O LORD, and all your commandments are true."
"My brother is in trouble, but you are near, God, and you have not forsaken him. It doesn't seem like this is a good thing, Father, but all of you commandents are true, and you have promised that you love us and want nothing but what is good for us. Thank you, Jesus, that have proven your love by offering yourself up for our punishment. Thank you that we can know you are near. Amen."
Ian seems to be making a little bit of progress since he's been home. I'm sure the familar surroundings are helping.
Please keep praying that this would help us all (especially Ian) know God and his joy better. And pray that Ian would be healed.
