Thank you for the beautiful passages from Corinthians. They are just what I needed this evening. I have an inoperable brain tumor and also have a dying mother who is in Hospice care. I am struggling to remain faithful to God and to find comfort in His mercy. I feel very alone.

Missy, I am sorry to read of your struggles and your isolation. I am glad, however, that the Lord saw fit to encourage you through this blog and, more importantly, through His word. I don't know you, but I am praying for you tonight and trusting that the Father of mercies will meet you through my small efforts. May He multiply grace and peace to you.


Missy, I don't know if you will get this message, but either way, I am going to be praying for you this evening.

I do not know, but I know that God knows, you and your whereabouts, and every detail of you and your mother's situations. I will be asking Him to help you find comfort in Him and in His mercy, as you so beautifully expressed.

Aloneness is added to deep suffering so many times. It doesn't seem fair, does it? I am sorry you are going through such things and feel so very alone.

If it's any help to you, I know for certain that He loves to answer that kind of prayer. You can ask him for comfort as much as you want. He does not get awkward or stumble in response. He cares and WILL help, even if in unseen ways.

His heart is breaking for you, I am sure.
