I know there are memes of “Jeremiah Strong” and he always seems to have that big ole smile on his face. At the hospital, at times, that is not always the case. There are times when the full weight of what this disease has done to his life, his body, and future is overwhelming.
He tries to hold back the tears to be strong for everybody. What is a father to do? Just hold him and say, “Cry it out son! Let it all out!”
I’ve taught my children God does not want us to be led by our emotions, but by his Word and His Holy Spirit. Most people make unwise decisions that bring ruin, when emotions run wild. Yet, emotions are there for a reason. It is unhealthy to stuff them down, when God has given them to us as stress and pressure release valves.
I send this post so that you understand Jeremiah and our family do not possess a super power, but we do possess saving faith and a true love for Almighty God!
As we pass through this veil of tears, we have this blessed assurance, “And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away” (Revelation 21:4).
We pray that all that Jeremiah and our family is going through we lead you to this promise and truth and may that truth set you free in Jesus’ name!
