Rejoice in the Lord

Tonight in church we sang this song, and it was something I needed to hear.

Rejoice in the Lord by Ron Hamilton

God never moves without purpose or plan
When trying His servent and molding a man.
Give thanks to the LORD though your testing seems long;
In darkness He giveth a song.

I could not see through the shadow ahead;
So I looked at the cross of my Savior instead.
I bowed to the will of the Master that day;
Then peace came and tears fled away.

Now I can see testing comes from above;
God strengthens His children and purges in love.
My Father knows best, and I trust in His care;
Through purging more fruit I will bear.

O Rejoice in the LORD
He makes no mistakes,
He knoweth the end of each path that I take,
For when I am tried
And purified,
I shall come forth as gold.

Wow, has that song ever been meaningful to our family. That's been the song of our hearts, as we've gone through some incredibly painful situations the past three years.

God is always good, and He is always faithful. "Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him..."

Hang in there!
Isaiah 26:3-4

Hi Tiffany,
I came across your blog and wanted to reach out....
I was a mom to a very special little boy, Bobby for 4 1/2 years. My little hero went to Heaven this past November. I saw that Dillon was at CHOP, which is also the hospital we used for Bobby. We probably live in the same area, and I wanted to let you know that we have a wheelchair, some therapy equipment, and some med supplies. If we have anything that Dillon would be able to use, I would love for you to have it. I know how difficult it can be to get what you need!

Please email me if you are interested, or just to talk, mom to mom. We have been through much of the same as you are going through with Dillon.

I will keep Dillon in my prayers!!!!

Jen
