March has brought so many things. It has been a whirlwind to say the least. I have had so many pictures and updates and posts that I have wanted to share...but it has just never been a good time to sit down and get it out there. SO...get ready for some update overload :)
Weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit
The salvation of the righteous comes from the LORD; he is their stronghold in time of trouble
For this God is our God for ever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end.
I have prayed and prayed for this sweet family and will continue to lift them up. There are so many questions that come from a death of a sweet young person with young children. It is not fair...it just doesnt seem right...its just cannot be right. But the Lord says it is. I was taught recently that EVERYTHING filters through the cross and we are NOT meant to always understand His plans while we are here on earth. In a world of instant gratification...we cannot google heaven and see what it will be like. We cant text God and ask him when he has planned for us to come. We cant mapquest the directions on how to get there. This is something we really have to WAIT for...wait??? That is not something that I am so great at!! This is what FAITH is. I have learned in the past few weeks that FAITH has so many more meanings than I was giving it credit for. It does not just mean I believe...the end. No way jose! I dont have an answer to so many things...but God does...and I gotta be OK with that. Patience is hard. Waiting is hard. Not knowing why is hard.
Jeremiah 29:11 (New International Version, ©2011)
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
