Gods hands are big enough!!

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
This is a follow up to my blog Hang in there. As I talked about in my last blog I was going through some rough family crises. Not just one but a few. You know the saying when it rains it pours well at that time I felt like I was in the midst of a thunder storm.
I have four children, 3 young adult daughters and a teenage son so it always seems like that when one is having a dramatic moment there is always one or two of them that follow. Now really why cant they just take turns and let mom handle them one at a time?
One of my daughters suffers with mental illness and sometimes it can be rather difficult and last week was one of those times. Well God showed me that He was with me and I wasn't alone and He stayed with me throughout this week.
Let me digress a little and go back to my God wink. That's what I call it when He shows up and you know with out a doubt that He is there and is speaking to you.
Well even after I had God wink at me I was still really struggling emotionally and knew I needed to go to church and just lean on my brothers and sisters for support. I went and got loving from my mom and all my brothers and sisters and much needed encouragement and words of wisdom. We prayed together and then I handed every thing over into Gods hands.
So now here comes the good part. This whole week I have been at peace and when I had to deal with my one daughter with the mental issues I was able to stay calm and the right words came to me to say. I have maintained my healthy habits and I felt no need to seek out food for comfort. So my words of encouragement to you my friends is Gods hands are big enough to hold all that you have for Him. So if you let go and let God He will work all things together for good.
