The procedure was done and all went well. He was scheduled to go home the next day. But in the middle of the night everything would change. The pain came, and the needle would pierce. And my daddy would slip away. Doctors unsure of what happened. They suspected the pain medication. They would tell us we needed to wait. Wait for it to clear his system. Just wait…
I am not good in the wait. Never have been. My thoughts run thoughts are Reckless. I forget Who is in control. But on that day I did not forget. I knew the One who is in control was about to call my daddy home. And I was terrified.
God are you there?
I am right here.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you.
