Praying

This has been a hard month already, with a lot of bad news.  We are all fine, but people we love have been affected by death and illness.  We are feeling the pain of four families.  So, we pray.... and pray.... and pray... and pray.

For the four families we know who are dealing with pain and worry and sorrow, God is there.  They are all families of faith.  It makes me wonder, though, how do people get through the hard times without faith?

I'm focusing on Jeremiah 29:11, "I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare, not for harm, to give you a future with hope."

Again, I thank God for HOPE, hope for a time when death and illness and worry and sadness and misery are no more.

Thank you for the encouragement. I am clinging to hope, and trusting in our God who "has the whole world in his hands."

Emily, I know we haven't officially met yet, but your family is the first of the four. Yes, it is all in His hands!

I'm anxious to meet you in person very soon!
