"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding" -Proverbs 3:5

"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" -Romans 8:28

"The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised" -Job 1:21

This past week I have watched a beautiful man of God suffer from cancer while surrounded by his family wondering if they will be close for his last breath.  I have also seen a family lose their husband/father/friend to a heart attack. 

I have always struggled the most with trusting the Lord completely.  Fear is my biggest enemy and Satan knows it.  I have stopped trying to understand the pain and ugliness of this world and have comfort in knowing our God is a Sovereign one!

Please pray for a family as they watch their loved one die.  Please pray for another who had no time for goodbye's and lost their loved one so suddenly.

Hold your loved ones a little closer. Call and tell them how you feel. Forgive. Praise the Lord that He is in control and loves us despite our human brokenness and that he is their to hold us up when we can't do it anymore. 

Love. Trust. Praise. Pray. Live
