A.W. Tozer - "Oh, if we would only remember who God is!"
I read that devotional last night while on break at work and let me tell you, it was EXACTLY what I needed to hear.
My mom has been in the hospital since Tuesday night and we had no idea what was wrong with her, needless to say, I was very worried. I couldn't sleep on Tuesday night, I just wanted to be with my mom but I had to stay at home that night. I worked all day yesterday and saw my mom in between shifts and thank God I was here when the doctor came in. Turns out my mom has infectious colitis which is inflammation of the large intenstine and colon which is treated by IV antibiotics for a few days, no surgery is required.
After work when I was on my way back to the hospital to stay with my mom, many thoughts ran through my head such as "What's gonna happen if my mom takes a turn for the worst?", "What if she dies?", "What if she has cancer?"
Then I remembered this quote by A.W. Tozer......"Oh, if we would only remember who God is!"
Oh, if we would only remember who God is.
There is such peace with that statement. Even though the thought of losing any of my family, especially my parents, brings much sorrow and grief upon my heart, there is also peace. God is God, God is Almighty, powerful, Wonderful Counselor, Everlasting Father, Abba, Comforter, Redeemer, and Friend.
I know that no matter what happens, as long as I remember who God is, everything will be okay.
