THE UPPER ROOM DEVOTIONAL

MESSAGE

I awoke with a feeling of dread. I was going to see our son in a nursing home for people with mental illness. The previous time my wife and I had visited was a disaster. Our son was combative, and his delusions were so strong that we weren’t able to connect with him.

Now I was preparing to visit again, and I felt strongly apprehensive. As I do every morning, I read The Upper Room before I left. The writer spoke of heavy burdens and how God had met her every need, providing strength and rest. Reflecting on her words, I prayed for God to give me peace, patience, and understanding for my upcoming visit. Immediately, I felt God’s precious love surrounding me.

When I arrived, our son met me with a smile and big hug. The visit was the most fulfilling in years. His delusions were minimal. We spent time recalling happy memories. I was able to hear his great big belly laugh. When it was time to leave, he gave me another big hug.
