  • A bruised reed he will not break, a smoldering wick he will not extinguish, in faithfulness he will bring forth justice. Isaiah 42:3

    Betsy, there is One who not only walks beside us, carrying us if necessary, but also goes before us, aware and prepared for what comes next. I pray your friend will feel His presence in her pain and allow His compassion to flow over it, bringing her comfort.

  • Betsy, I love a good Pollyanna moment, and I'm a firm believer that engaging all your prayer warriors is a good first step to any problem. Praying for your friend and her family!

    Psalm 119:50

    My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life.

  • While finding the words is difficult, once spoken, they can also be difficult to hear - even though the intent is purely positive. Sometimes the most supporting, healing thing that can be passed on is the acknowledgement that just the "right words" are lost and our hearts and prayers are there at the ready to be called upon when it feels "ok" to ask.

    Blessings on both you - pure-hearted sister - and your friend during her personal trials.

  • A exceptional read would be "Love, Medicine & Miracles" by Bernie Siegel. I KNOW that God answers prayer, and that mine are with you and your friend!
