"I have made the Lord God my refuge."
God brought this scripture to me tonight through my friend Jan (love ya or something jan) and I've just been thinking over it for the past few hours. There have been many nights and days where loneliness wants to creep its way into my heart. And there have been many moments when I realize that no one else in the world is going through exactly what we are going through. My best friend, the one who is normally my biggest consoler, Ian, is not able to console me with words right now, and that knowledge never leaves me.
But it is not in any of these things that I am to take refuge. It is in the Lord. And what a perfect being for us to take refuge in, for He never fails us. No one knows exactly what Ian is going through right now except the Lord. No one can be his comfort and His refuge other than the Lord. Only He is able to comfort us no matter where we are, night or day.
Ian had a pretty sleepy day, but he did well at sitting up. Please continue to pray for progress in communication. Pray that Ian would find his refuge in the Lord.
