My Chat with God ( part 6 in my story)

Alright, God, you want me to do what?

Stay with your husband.

Ok, what am I suppose to do here?

Let. Go.


Let ME handle it.

HOW in the world are you going to do that?

In time you will see.

Ugh….really God?  Can’t you just perform a miracle or something and banish the disease?

Have a little faith in ME. {can’t you just see the grin?}

How am I supposed to do that when I feel like the ground has fallen out from beneath me?



One day at a time –one hour, one minute or one breath at a time, if you need to.

You do realize you are telling a control-freak worrywart to turn everything over to you, right?

Yes. I do.

Where were you when this was all happening?!

Beside you…

Do you remember the car accident when you were four months pregnant?  The one when Jimmy was driving you to work?  When the little white car turned in front of you making your husband’s red truck spin into oncoming traffic? With the child you had just conceived through your second round of in-vitro fertilization?  She was four months old in your womb.  I was there.  There were angels, including your father, all around protecting you and Lil Miss Abigail.  You didn’t feel the impact – you were not assaulted by the air bags, you were not cut by your seat belt or pelted by any shards of glass.  You were safe in my arms.  That’s where you will always be.  Trust in me. Rest in me.

Deep breath…

Release the shoulder tension with a deep sigh…

I will.

One minute at a time.

One hour at a time.

One day at a time.

I will learn to trust again.

Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. – 1 Peter 5: 7

  1. And I have to add that when I leave a comment, my name, “peacefullegal”, is put onto two lines and for the first time, I just read “peacefulle gal” – now if that isn’t God talking, I don’t know what is!! May I become a peace-full gal and keep trusting….

    • Love it!! You are THE most peaceful gal I know! And learning to trust is the biggest step you can take in this whole process – trust in God and trust in yourself…I just came from a meeting…it’s amazing how a group of people in the same room with similar circumstances and a shared goal can help you direct your path…such spiritual power in those rooms

  2. Trusting Him one moment at a time . . . that’s what He asks from us, for our benefit and for His glory–yet even that can seem so hard at times. But remembering His past faithfulness–like you did with your wreck–always helps me too. And He’s always the same; faithful then, so will He be now and in my future. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks for visiting, Lisa! You are so right – all He asks is for us to trust and yet it’s the hardest thing for us humans. We’d rather be stuck in our self-made webs of fear than place our faith in the One who loves us and wants nothing more than to give us a prosperous future. Remembering is hard, but it is so helpful.

  3. Thank you for reminding me to look at God’s past faithfulness through painful times. “One day at a time –one hour, one minute or one breath at a time, if you need to.” Sometimes that’s all we can do, isn’t it? Your dialog shows the heart of God – so tender, patient, and loving. Thank you.

    • Thank you, Trudy. It is so helpful and healing to reflect on past hurts and see how God worked for the good – staying with us every step of the way – one breath, one minute, one hour, one day at a time.

  4. Isn’t it good to know we can look back at all of the times He has been faithful to take care of us no matter what? It helps us to have faith when times get tough when we draw on these past experiences.
    Great post! 🙂 stopping by from Bonnie’s.
