“Once again I’ll go over what God has done, lay out on the table the ancient wonders, I’ll ponder all the things you’ve accomplished, and give a long, loving look at your acts.”

Pondering What God Has Done

I knew it was going to happen. But I hoped and prayed Fulton would be safe from the Coronavirus. As we’ve learned during this crisis, people in nursing homes are more susceptible to the virus which can quickly spread. Sure enough, one of the staff tested positive. She had been working on another floor, so that’s helpful. So far, Fulton is okay, with his tests proving negative. But when I heard the news, I was rattled and started my worry campaign. It’s easy to see on the news, all the people coming out of the hospitals and brush it aside, but now it’s very close to home.

So, I asked myself, how should I respond to this faith challenge? It’s time to go back to the basics. Then God reminded me how often Fulton has been close to death and every time He’s been there to pull him through. I found a verse in (Psalm 77:11-12), David said: “Once again I’ll go over what God has done, lay out on the table the ancient wonders, I’ll ponder all the things you’ve accomplished, and give a long, loving look at your acts.”

God also reminded me, Fulton, in a sense, is on borrowed time. I’ve been told, most people with traumatic brain injuries don’t last past 10 years. This December it will be 10 years. Every breath Fulton breathes is a gift from God. God has a plan for my son. And so, I will praise Him in advance for what He will do for Fulton in the future. As scripture says in (Romans 8:28), “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.”

No matter what the situation, we can trust God all things will work together for our good. Have a great week!

Your Friend,

  2. Dawson, I like what you said about every breath is a gift from God. What we all need to remember and be thankful for is every breath for all of us is a gift from God. No matter what he is good and will take us through every situation. Isaiah tells us he will walk with us through the flood and the fire. However; he doesn’t say he will take us out of it only go with us. Amen

  3. Oh Dawson, thanks for sharing your heart. Continued prayers for Fulton & y’all, as well as the worker, everyone who lives and works there. How hard this must be. Thankful we serve a big God. Give my love to Ruth Hill. Love y’all.

  4. Hopefully the home has dismissed her temporarily! She shouldn’t be there till she’s clear. So thankful Fulton is good so far! How is the communication equipment coming along?!

  5. Dear Lord, We 1st one to praise you for the gift of breath and life!! We ask you Lord to protect Fulton from illness and give strength and his immune system. Bring him joy in his every day and provide the time needed for the staff to learn the new communication device. We pray with boldly to allow him to be able to use that and finally be able to communicate with his family. You are a good God so let us all rest in peace knowing the truth of your love. 🙏🙌 In Jesus name Amen

  6. Yes God Is Good. In reading thru devotionals today I was reminded that God is always giving! GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY !
