This morning has been pretty hard. Joe and I have been up talking to him all night and encouraging him to respond to us and wake up. He was continually reacting to our voices to the point that his body was jerking non stop and I became overwhelmed and stopped encouraging him to wake up. For a moment my mind was scared that he would come too. The nurse reminded me that he will come out of the coma when he is ready. He has severe injuries and he most likely will not just snap back to life. It's hard to remind myself of this because we all just want the Cale we know to wake up.
Yesterday his pastor visited and prayed that he would wake up within the day. He didn't, but it reminded me about the fact that we are human; we are not God. God sees everything and in a way that we will never comprehend. Because of that simple fact I understand that the exact moment that Cale wakes up is the exact moment that God wants him too.
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. | Romans 5: 1-5
