My hubby and son spent the evening in the doggy E.R. with her, while my daughters cried themselves to sleep waiting for them to get home. I prayed with the girls, then over them as they slept. I wept silently as I asked God to heal the hurt in their hearts. The Holy Spirit reminded me of Zephaniah 3:17 in the NLT:
“For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty Savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With His love, He will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”
I pictured that as I stood in the girl’s room, and hope overwhelmed my soul. A song of praise fell from my lips. “God is so good. God is so good. God is so good. He’s so good to us.” Then, “He answers prayers,” then “I love Him so,” then “We’ll praise Your name, We’ll praise Your name, We’ll praise Your name. You’re so good to us.”
Not long after, my hubby and son came home with Cinnamon, and with a precious little pink heart on her cast. I saw that as one of the many ways the Lord gave delight to us in this situation. We were all very sad that her leg was broken, and that it may or may not ever heal back to normal, but I’m incredibly thankful that the Lord did not or will not leave us broken-hearted. He is a loving, mighty Savior, so very faithful.
I realize that weeping over our little dog’s fractured leg might seem silly, but even small heartaches involve some pain. The important thing is that I seek the Lord, depending on him to heal every one, no matter the size. Though weeping may last for a night, His joy comes in the morning. (Psalm 30:5)
“When the righteous cry for help, the LORD hears and delivers them out of ALL their troubles. The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. MANY are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them ALL.” Psalm 34:17-19, ESV, emphasis mine.
