“From the God of your father who helps you, And by the Almighty who blesses you…”
Genesis 49:25, NASB

El-ShaddaiDear Friends,

Several days ahead of time, I consider which name of God to write about. I recently decided on El-Shaddai for this particular post.

And oh, it’s so appropriate for what’s going on in my life right now.

Today, hospice approved my beautiful mom for a transitional bed. Depending on her condition, she can stay at the Hospice home for 2-3 weeks. If she improves, we’ll need to move her, but we won’t be surprised if the Lord takes her home soon. She’s not doing very well as her Alzheimer’s disease progresses.

I’m finding much comfort in El-Shaddai—God Almighty.

“Power belongs to God; and lovingkindness is Thine, O Lord” (Ps. 62:11-12). Amen. He holds my mom in His hands. He helps her, and He helps us. Nothing escapes the Lord’s notice. He possesses all power in my family’s situation … and yours. He sovereignly oversees every detail, loving us so wonderfully all the time.

Isn’t that truth incredibly comforting? We don’t belong to a weak or incapable God. Our God is ALMIGHTY.

Whatever situation we face, El-Shaddai possesses all power over it.

Much love in Christ,
