DEAR GOD: Your Will Be Done~

 

 

17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

 Ephesians 5:17 ( KJV)

 

 

 

The Lord’s will is for our good.

He knows what we can handle, what are hearts need, and what our soul desires.

We lost our precious “fur baby” Max this past weekend.  After almost 15 years of an amazing relationship filled with pure unadulterated and unconditional love,  sheer happiness and endless adventures.

I prayed since we took him home all those years ago, that when he needed to leave this earth, that the LORD would allow him to do it naturally at home, preferably in his sleep.

After 12 weeks following a diagnosis of Kidney failure, Max basically still had an amazing quality of life. He played, was eating, and filled with a zest for living.

We enjoyed a beautiful summer together, and fun.  You’d never think he was sick, still looking so beautiful, and happy.  But, the last two weeks of his life, he slowed down considerably, and it was obvious he was not long for this world.

On October 27, we tried one more thing on the advice of our Vet, to try and flush the toxins from his system.  It proved to be futile, but one we had to do in order to have given him one last chance at life.  The Vet explained that 90% of the time, dogs can rebound for an additional 8 weeks to 6 months.  It wasn’t to be for our baby Max.  He was tired, and run down.

We took him home. We never left him at the vet, sat with him the entire time. Max was never out of our sight.

12 hours upon returning home, the morning of October 28th,  I prayed to God aloud, “LORD, if it’s your will… please, take him home with you…he’s suffered so much these past hours please take him home.  Don’t let us make the decision of taking his life, please, LORD, if it’s your will, take him now.”

Within seconds of my tearful plea,  Ron and I held him in our arms, as he took his last couple of breaths, and suddenly, he was gone at 7:15 am.  He looked like he was sleeping, so beautiful, so quiet, so peaceful.  Our baby, in our arms…went home.

We cried, yet were overjoyed that we received our miracle, thanks to the LORD, our amazing God.  He answered our prayers, according to HIS WILL and His timing.

I wanted to share this highly personal experience to be a witness to God’s miraculous and amazing grace, and His love for us, His children.

He is in control at all times.  Since the beginning of time, and right this moment…the LORD is in control.

He knows what we can handle, and for me, the thought of brining Max to be euthanized would have quite possibly, pushed me over the edge…so the LORD waited for me to come to terms with it, and when I realized it was time to bring him to be euthanized, He KNEW I couldn’t handle it.  And, to that end, He protected me, for He knows what my heart can handle.  And, HE NEVER gives us more than we can handle.  Plus, HIS WILL, is always the best for us.  No matter what…always the best for us.

His timing.

His will.

His blessings.

And, His miracles.

 

How amazing is our Father?

 

Praise His name.

All glory and honor belong to Him.

The victory is His, now and always.

 

“Father, thank You for Your endless love, protection. You are faithful, loyal, and loving, I adore You, I worship You, I am Yours forever and a day.  Thank You, I love You…and thank You for bringing Max into our lives, all those years ago, He was your creature whom we loved fully and completely, Thank You. All the glory and honor be yours, now and forever, in Jesus name, amen…”

 

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

1 Corinthians 10:13  (KJV)

 

********

15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

 

                                                   Ephesians 5:15-20 (KJV)
