Genesis 22:2 Then God said (to Abraham), “Take your son, your only son, whom you love—Isaac—and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you.”
Can you imagine the Lord coming to you and asking you to sacrifice your child? It’s a good thing He didn’t ask me to sacrifice Ryan eight years ago, because I would have fought that request with every ounce of my being…because I couldn’t see the bigger picture. I THANK/PRAISE/GIVE GLORY TO God, for being way more smarter than me (improper grammar intended), for having a plan far better than I could ever have imagined, and for allowing me to watch that plan unfold partly through His use of Ryan’s sacrifice.
Isaiah 55:8-9 “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.”
Every day, I continue pray for Ryan’s complete healing, but also to see what God’s doing through Ryan’s circumstance. Thank you Lord for answering my prayers!
