"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them close to his heart, and shall gently lead those that are with young." Isaiah 40:11

Struck down but not Destroyed

I want to share a story with you that someone shared with me. I am so moved by their trust in God.  If you get a chance, click on these links. (and have kleenex ready)  
Daisy's story
Their blog

This morning in church there was a free sharing time of how God has proved his faithfulness to us.  There is no other place I would have wanted to be today. There are so many ways to suffer in this life.  And there are so many ways that God is still Good.  It reminded me of the verses on the blog I just shared with you.  It reminded me of the HOPE we have.  We feel destroyed but God promises that we will not be.  Beauty is rising from the ashes.  He brings new life from what seems to be dying.  He will work good even from the worst pain.  He will keep His promises.

Well said Kendra. Just last night at the personal care home where I work, I had the privilege also to just hold someone and share their pain and their unfair lot in life. There is so much pain out there that we are not aware of...we walk right by and never notice. I reminded her that God's heart breaks with hers when he sees her pain. Thanks for the reminder of hope.
