The Lord has brought tears again, but we know that He is good and faithful to His promises. He will not forsake us.
Please pray for my dear friend, Elise, who is very likely dear to you too. Please pray that she will feel the peace that passes all understanding. Pray that the process will happen naturally for her. Pray for her dear husband and precious children.
Last night, while eating- out, we received a phone call. We are shaken. Some very, very dear friends who have been so faithful to the Lord, were murdered yesterday. They are now experiencing unspeakable joy in the presence of the Lord. We are grieving, but not for them -- they will never feel pain again.
2 Corinthians 4:8-9
" We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed..."
Our God is both Loving and Sovereign ... we know this, and can rest in it.
