If you don’t follow my Facebook, then you don’t know our sweet Brynne is having a lot of trouble right now. She’s been in the hospital several days now, and things have been kinda scary. (But, of course, she keeps smiling! www.brynnessmiles.org)
One of the verses that I have continually claimed and prayed for Brynne is found in the Psalms.
He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. Psalm 91:4
There’s something about that verse that brings my heart great joy! The thought of our sweet girl being completely wrapped up and engulfed by the power and protection of our God simply overwhelms my heart. My heart lept this morning to see a text from Maggie. There is no question that the Lord is proving himself faithful in miraculous ways. But, the battle is not over yet. They had another ‘scare’ last night, and the same could happen again in the next 24 hours.
We must fight with them. And, realistically, the only way to do that is to cover Brynne in prayer. This morning, I put together a prayer guide, if you will, of my thoughts and verses that correlate (yes, mother, I skipped church to do this). 🙂 There is no doubt that God is moving, His Spirit is working, and I want us all to take part in it!!
Just as this verse says of our God, while her little body is fighting, let’s cover her, fight with her, and ask God to protect our girl… together! Below are just some of my thoughts. Feel free to use, and please, send me questions, comments, thoughts, additions, etc.
