At times when God speaks, it’s a still small voice…sometimes even a whisper. And it’s at times like these that He invites us to be still and know that He is God (Psalms 46:10).
Join me as I share with you God Whispers that have that sustained, strengthened and encouraged me on my journey to be the Mommy and Wife God wants me to be.
In the fragility of life, there IS hope.
Last night while Hubby was out with the kids, I settled down on the couch thinking I had a good two hours ahead of me to do some much awaited undisturbed blogging. Before I did though, I hopped over to my Facebook account to drop a note. On my thread was a status update from a fellow blogger asking for prayer. Her sweet three year old was found unresponsive, dead, in his bed that morning. No cause of death known, no prior illnesses known…no answers…just a big void in their home now.
I cannot fathom what that dear family is going through now. I don’t even want to try and put myself in their shoes. As another blogger wrote it’s any parent’s worst nightmare.
I don’t know the family personally but we have something in common. She’s a Mom. I’m a Mom. My children are the sprinkles in my life’s cookie. Her children are hers.
Her story is a reminder to all of us that nothing is permanent. Nothing is forever. In a split second things can change.
This is the fragility of life and though it seems like an insecure, worrying situation we have the assurance that we have hope. We have a Constant. Someone who will hold all the pieces of life together if we allow Him to. Even through those really, really difficult times He IS there even though it feels like there is no light at the end of that dark tunnel. It’s hard but the only thing we can do is trust Him…yes, even in those times.
Even if life seems unfair at this moment, I just want to encourage you with this that He IS a loving God.
His Word IS True.
With whatever faith you can muster, cling to the Promises in His Word.
He WILL bring you through the uncertainty of what you are going through
All you need to do is ask Him to help you through this time.
Cry out to Him and trust in the peace He puts into your heart.
He IS Faithful.
Please remember Amanda Kenworthy and her family in your prayers.
But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel:“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by your name; You are Mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you. For I am the Lord your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
(Isaiah 43: 1-3 a)
