grief, sadness, thoughts churning..
I have a heavy heart tonight, thinking of a friend going through something difficult and getting ready to have it placed in front of her once again tomorrow.
(in fact i have a few friends that have had extremely difficult times recently)

I am a nurse, i want to make it all better, i can't.

i have had many, many prayers for these friends recently.
i know God is listening, i know this is part of His plan..
BUT i am sitll wrapped in sadness and sometimes questioning..why?
honestly, it has hit me hard these last few months...
tonight i sit with my thoughts and prayers.

 i can maybe be a comfort to these friends with words, prayers, lending an ear...

i want to make it all better, i can't.

Have you ever had your heart hurt, i mean really hurt for someone?
Have you felt stripped of control because you want to help and you can't?

God may reveal in ways we don't want, like or in a way we would never ask...

"Rejoice in the lord always; again i will say, Rejoice.
Let your reasonableness be known to everyone.
The Lord is at hand;do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer
and supplication with thanksgivng let your requests be made known to God.
And the peace of God, wich surpasses all understanding,
 will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jeasus."
Philippians 4: 4-7

i want to make it all better, i can't.
