Grief and Grace

Death was not meant for us.

We were meant to live forever.

It is something foreign that every molecule of our body protests, that our emotions scream out against, that our minds sometimes refuse to accept.

We were meant for an eternal existence.

Thank you Jesus, it is restored!! We have the hope of eternal life. He keeps His promises.

My very good friend lost her baby boy at birth this week. She and her husband have purposely chosen to accept God's sovereignty, not to stray from the path, and to praise Him through their grief.
And God's grace shines through them.

This calls to mind a spiritual strength equal to the physical strength of Samson. Jesus is the Rock. Build your foundation on Him!

*Please keep this family in your prayers.
