All About GOD - Growing Relationships with Jesus and Others

A broken heart is always greater than that of our own

In 1997, little Tucker laid flat on his back in Room 431 at Children's Medical Center, Dallas,TX with oxygen tube in his nose and three drainage tubes out of his little chest from open heart surgery. This is where he spent his 1st year birthday.
As hearts were crying out in fear, anxiety, physical exhaustion, as the absolute end seemed to be the next moment, God would graciously make it clear, He's in control. Emotions change to that of reserved thanks and praise. As Tucker's 1 yr old heart mended during the 30 days we were there, some of his 1 yr old new friends went Home. No, not to a home with a street address. It was made clear to me. Tucker came home to a street address. As hard as it can be sometimes, as Peter says, give thanks in your suffering. There may be someone hurting worse than yourself.
Yeah, I came to this site due to a wife that walked away from a 21 year marriage. Gosh, yeah it hurt. I've prayed, God has heard. I and my kids are fine. God has taken our pain as we gave it to Him. The wife's heart is somewhere away from God. He will deal with her. No longer my concern. I say this to state, I see pain here so much greater than mine. For this, I thank God for leaving one set of "footprints in the sand."
Tucker, due to further medical issues, did go Home 5 years later. He and Jesus are hanging out and waiting for us to get there.

Hello brother.....just read your life testimony and am so proud of you ...just believe that the only strength is found in Christ....
I"d like to encourage you by the words of God, He says in Isaiah :
Isaiah 40 : 28 : Don't you know? Haven't you heard? The LORD is the eternal God, Creator of the earth. He never gets weary or tired; his wisdom cannot be measured.
40:29 The LORD gives strength to those who are weary.
40:30 Even young people get tired, then stumble and fall.
40:31 But those who trust the LORD will find new strength. They will be strong like eagles soaring upward on wings; they will walk and run without getting tired.

Keep strong in God, and let our faith grow everyday..
Bless you bro,

It takes horrendous strength to endure what you've gone through. A strength that will never come from anything but Divine. What a glorious tale of God's love you wrote here... The loss of a dear child, a 21-year marriage broken AND God seeing you through all that have happened as you come out of each alive and kicking. You share God's strength to others by writing this. Thanks.
