Thursday Night ICU

Sitting in the ICU on a Thursday night, knowing that 2 sick kids are on the way is somewhat of an ominous feeling. Like Pippin standing in Minas Tirith: “‘I am no warrior at all and dislike any thought of battle; but waiting on the edge of one that I can’t escape is worst of all.”

Somewhere there is a balance between that emotion and the words of Isaiah 7: 

‘Be careful, keep calm and don’t be afraid. Do not lose heart because of these two smoldering stubs of firewood—because of the fierce anger of Rezin and Aram and of the son of Remaliah. 5 Aram, Ephraim and Remaliah’s son have plotted your ruin, saying, 6 “Let us invade Judah; let us tear it apart and divide it among ourselves, and make the son of Tabeel king over it.” 7 Yet this is what the Sovereign LORD says:
       ” ‘It will not take place,
       it will not happen,
    8 for the head of Aram is Damascus,
       and the head of Damascus is only Rezin.
       Within sixty-five years
       Ephraim will be too shattered to be a people.
    9 The head of Ephraim is Samaria,
       and the head of Samaria is only Remaliah’s son.
       If you do not stand firm in your faith,
       you will not stand at all.’ “

Faith ain’t easy. Help my Unbelief!
