my heart is overwhelmed today as i have read many posts in my blogging community this morning where tears have just streamed down my face because of the circumstances that some of them are going through. one specifically is burning in my heart. just yesterday, a family that had a young baby named Kayleigh, who was born prematurely 10 1/2 months ago and had overcome so many things in her young life, went home to be with Jesus. i can not even imagine how the family must feel. i do not even know how to pray. i asked the Lord, "Help this family. Help them Lord. Help them." i do not even know how to explain that as i prayed that, i could not even imagine what it would be that the Lord could say or do for them right now that could help them at all. "she is in Heaven with Jesus now." "she is not dealing with all of her health issues any more." "we will see her again someday." i am sure that all of their friends and family members and God Himself is comforting them with these words. but, i know that the pain of the "now" has got to still be burning in their hearts and my heart is hurting for them too.
the family writes a blog about their journey with their baby. they show many pictures of her life along the way. you see her grow and you find yourself hoping and praying that they will get to take her home with their other children and raise her as their miracle baby from God. but, yesterday was where the physical journey of their baby girl came to an end and has to contiue on into eternity, which is where their hope must remain. the swelling feeling of grief that i have in my heart for a baby girl and her family that i do not even physically know makes me to know that what they are going through must be so much more intense right now. i can not even imagine! as i can not get away from thinking about this today, i know God is putting it on my heart to continue to lift them up to Him. Please Help them Lord! That is all i can get out! PLEASE HELP THEM!!!!!
