joy. hope. thankful.

this is on my heart today as
i am thinking of a sweet family
from our church who lost their little infant son.

it is so hard sometimes to see
our way through the darkness
but, sunday at church our pastor said
something like this:
if you want to get out of the darkness
then step into the light.

oh, to be surrounded, comforted
filled with the light!

we do not always know the reason
things happen to us or to those we love.
but, i do know that it all works together for
good to those who love Him.

Romans 8:28

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

James 1:2
Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials
Psalm 71:14
But as for me, I will always have hope; 
I will praise you more and more 
may the Lord Jesus
surround this young family
in His love and may they
see His light all around them.

When we put our trust in Him, He will always see us through.

You have such a tender heart, Melody. What a terrible loss for that family.

I love your Psalm quote about always having hope. I will pray for that family to experience that hope.

You are a good friend to them.

Peace in Christ,
