"God Is With Me"
While in the ambulance he told his dad to call and let us know about his injury, and tell us "God is with me". God is with me. He was worried, even thinking he might die at one point, but he knew God was with him. He did not understand why God did not protect Him when he had prayed for that.......but he still knew God was with him. He was in an ambulance in terrible pain, but he wanted us to know God was with him. As you can imagine, we were pretty proud of him at this point. And we could not help but ponder what lessons Grant was teaching us and everyone around him.
All you have to do to get yourself into a state of anxiety is watch the news. The economy has tanked, there are so many school shootings people are afraid to put their kids on the bus, the flu is now at epidemic levels with hospitals full of people dealing with it, and according to "those that know" our world might come crashing down around us at anytime. We are fed a steady diet of fear and dread from so many sources on a daily basis. Do we worry? Or do we remember that God is with us, Do we blame God? Or do we remember that God is with us. Do we join in using our own voices to spread the word about the latest crisis, or do we speak Gods Word over every situation. Do we remember, like Grant, that God is with us?
