Maryland mother-of-four on deathbed with brain cancer uses all her energy to raise her hand for worship song
The inspirational moment was captured on video by family members, with some even heard crying in the background as the mother raised her hand in exaltation
A Maryland mother-of-four suffering from terminal cancer who had been practically unresponsive for the last few days managed to miraculously raise her hand in exaltation to a worship song. A resident of Bowie in Prince George's County, the mother was reportedly given just a few days to live but was able to find one last burst of strength to accomplish the deed.
In a video of the heartfelt moment that was captured by relatives at the home, the mom can be seen raising her hand as a family member begins playing 'You Say' by Lauren Daigle on her phone. The relative tilts the phone towards the dying woman, who reportedly suffers from brain cancer, in a bid to allow her to listen to it more closely.
The endearing scene is made all the more wholesome because of the reactions of the family members gathered around her.
All of them seem undeniably happy as the mother refuses to give up and enjoys what may very well be one of her last songs on the planet. They also rejoice over the fact that she was responding to a song when previously she had been unresponsive to everything else. One woman can even be heard crying in the background as she watches on and takes in the whole scene.
According to the Daily Mail, the person who filmed the video said that family members had gathered at the home with her mother to be there for her in what was looking to be her final few days. "She was unable to speak or open her eyes and could not move her arms much," the person said, explaining how badly their mother's condition had deteriorated.
But, of course, Daigle's 'You Say', which released on Christian Radio this past July as the lead single for her second studio album 'Look Up Child', would prove to be a game-changer. "My mom used all of her energy to get her arm raised to worship the Lord."
The incredible moment may have very well been inspired by the song's inspirational chorus which goes, "You say I am loved when I can't feel a thing / You say I am strong when I think I am weak. You say I am held when I am falling short / When I don't belong / Oh you say that I am yours. And I believe / Oh I believe / What you say of me."
