WHERE ARE YOU LORD?
I am so confused and bewildered, Lord. You can move mountains, separate and walk on water,
even raise a dead man. I know You have cured illnesses and provided comfort in times of
distress. Your love has encompassed in stressful times of trials, and You have sent peace in the
midst of great storms. Why , Oh why are you not sparing my sweet Tiffany of her horrid
ailments? Where are You Lord?
She kneels in great distress with aching stomach, throwing up acid and shaking uncontrollably.
You hear her cries, we both know this. You see her pain and truly care. How I ache along with
her, as I kneel behind her and look up to You for comfort. My eyes fill with tears silently, not
knowing what You are doing in her life right now. Are You testing her faith or building it up?

wellness and hope. My eyes shift to her frailness and back to You, Oh Lord. We will sit at Your
feet and wait on Your presence to take her away from this place. Where You want her to be, fully

Time lapses into early morning light. Still, she waits on You for healing, comfort and calm.
Finally, she rests in Your everlasting peace and gentle stillness. Her eyes close as she slowly falls
off to sleep. Our hearts are so thankful that this trial is through. We're trusting she will have
strength, needed strength to please those she must go to shortly, believing You have multiplied
