My sweet sister-friend came all the way from TN to share life with me in person, last week. Oh, how I was blessed, as always. Kindred spirits we are, indeed.
Today, once again, my heart was knit to hers in tears and prayer. We’ve been here before. Intimacy.
We thank God already for answered prayers!
I am reminded of God’s amazing faithfulness in my grief. When each breath seems unbearable. When decisions, actions, and living life are necessary. God gave me this scripture…
8 The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
The words goes before you and will be with you, are words written on my heart. When I couldn’t bear to do the next thing, I reminded God that He went before me and was with me… so HE could just do the next thing… and He did.
To my sweet friend Julie tonight, receiving the diagnosis today that her fourth child (who is turning three this Christmas), has cystic fibrosis… the burden of decisions looming and an uncertain life….
HE is faithful to always go before you – claim it, pray it, believe it!
I. Heart. You!
Girlfriends, will you join me in praying for her family tonight?
