Have you ever experienced a spiritual dryness? Many of the saints have felt an emptiness and abandonment by God even in the midst of doing the work he called them to do. The first reading shows us that no matter what you are 'feeling' God is bound by nothing, not even death.
One more thing: Having a child with a chronic illness is a roller coaster ride of highs and lows. Keeping my focus on God's promise and his ability to conquer death through Christ's resurrection helps me keep my fears and anxieties at bay. Whatever you are asking God to do in your child's life, know that he is working out his plan, no matter how 'dry' things may seem at the moment.
Prayer: Father I give thanks to you for your everlasting love, a love which surrounds me even in the moments when I don't feel it. You know the burden's of my heart. I ask you to show your wondrous deeds to my children, so that they can live the life you desire for them. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen. St. Bernard, pray for me.
