Why Is There Such a Need to Control???

Behind much unhappiness is the fear that there is no way to control the situation.  The Dr. has told us that Dan only has a few weeks.  Shouldn’t that be enough to prepare me for what is going to happen to each one of us one day?  Today, Dan slept most of the day .  He has been doing that for 4 days because his body has not adjusted to taking the pain killer, morphine.  But today, I began to wonder if this sleep is the kind one has because the end is very near.  I want to know…be in control.

And, sure enough, I became very sad.  I went for a walk just before sunset. Walking very slowly, I analyzed every symptom Dan has…and fear crept in.  Behind most fear is the belief, “I won’t be okay.”  As I began to pray, I poured out my heart to God giving Him all my fears.  His love comforted me, helped me remember that God has always provided what Dan and I needed.  God will not abandon me now.  What is important is to remember that Dan has faithfully followed Jesus’ teachings for 63 years. He will be okay.  And it is important that I hold on to God the Father, Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  All is well with us!  Pray for those who are grieving because Dan may leave us soon. — Anne and Dan
