My son was admitted to the hospital over the weekend.  I went to see him on Sunday and it was quite difficult.  He's 9 and has lost so many things and is very angry.  I pray that we will receive the are that he needs and I receive the tools to help him, after he's released. Always in His Grip!

I am praying as well.

Hopefully God can use this time to strengthen you and your son and help him see past the anger.

Praying.  Is this his first inpatient?

My devotion this morning said "Lean on me as you face the circumstances of this day. Whether or not they realize it, all people lean on , depend on, something: physical strength, intelligence, beauty, wealth, achievements, family, friends, and so on. All of these are gifts from Me, to be enjoyed gratefully. However, relying on any of these things is risky, because every one of them can let you down.

When your circumstances are challenging and you are feeling weak, you tend to obsess about how you are going to make it through the day. This wastes a lot of time and energy; it also distracts you from Me. Whenever this happens, ask me to open your eyes so you can find Me in the moment. See Me standing nearby, with My strong arm extended toward you, offering you My help. Don't try to pretend that you have it all together or that you are stronger than you really are. Instead, lean hard on Me, letting Me bear most of your weight and help you with your problems. Rejoice in Me, your strength, and worship while leaning on Me. Proverbs 18:24

I needed to hear this because I am struggling with how to feel useful and find a place to work as an attorney. I thought it may help others here too.

Thanks Sherrie. That is helpful to me. I feel like I have a million and one things to do, although it really isn't that many. I run from one thing to another. Leaning on God is a better answer.

Thank you.  I met with my son today and he wasn't as angry as on Sunday.  First meeting with the team in inpatient care.
