Yes, we have cried. Yes, we hurt. Yes, it has been hard. It is hard. There are times when we doubt, fear and frankly, when we even feel angry. Our emotions are real and mixed. They change from one moment to the next. Sometimes we feel strong, confident, hopeful. Other times we ….. well, you know. They are the same feelings you are experiencing. You see we are just like you. We are not some super spiritually gifted family with this super picture perfect faith. We too struggle with living out our faith and belief in the midst of life's circumstances and tragic events.
Guess what? Life isn’t fair. It is hard. No matter who you are. There are reasons, but they are the ones we don't want to hear: genes, physics, biology, natural selection, being in the wrong place at the wrong time, the choices we make, and the choices others make. The universe is quite indifferent to our plight. But there is one who does care, who hears and who is big enough to handle all of emotions and feelings.. In fact He is the one who gave us those feelings and emotions.
You don't need to speak
Baby take some time
Let those prayers roll down your cheek
It maybe tomorrow
You'll be past the sorrow
But tonight it's alright
It doesn't mean you don't trust Him
It doesn't mean you don't believe
It doesn't mean you don't know
He's redeeming everything.
This blog is proof. It has been viewed over 34,000 times all over the world including Russia, France, Germany, England, Australia, Austria, Canada, Italy, and South Korea. Never would we have ever had the opportunity to share with so many our faith, hope and belief in the one true living God. I don't know how people get through life without God. He is our strength, our confidence, our peace in the middle of the storm. And HE is our unwavering hope! We continue to pray and believe in healing and we walk confidentially forward in trust knowing that even this God is redeeming.
11 By you my sorrow is turned into dancing; you have taken away my clothing of grief, and given me robes of joy; 12 So that my glory may make songs of praise to you and not be quiet. O Lord my God,
In His Peace,
