Rough Day and God's timing

Yesterday was a pretty rough day for my sister. Of course that makes it a rough day for me and my other sister. We three sisters (I am the youngest) hurt when one of us is hurting. We lost our Dad to cancer when I was 21 and newly married (2 wks) and our mom 10 years later to cancer. We have seen a tremendous amount of pain and suffering. We three girls are all that is left to continue the Christian legacy that our parents left to us (thanks Mom and Dad!) and it has not been an easy road for us. The enemy continues to try and steal, kill and destroy but we know that Christ has won the battle and we have victory in Him! Hallelujah!

Now, back to the story. Melinda (the middle sister) logged on to read her emails yesterday and a close friend had forwarded her an email from New Way Ministries with Dr. Larry Crabb. She immediately felt God speaking directly to her. The words came at just the right time! Could this be from God? She wanted me to see God working and be encouraged and forwarded the email to me. The words spoke powerfully to me, as well.

Yes, God provided words of comfort! Sometimes when life just gets so hard, it is difficult to see God at work. I know I am not alone. When life gets tough, are you able to recognize God at work in your life? I am thankful that God continues to open our eyes to see Him at work even when the storm is raging and there seems to be little hope.

I pray that this book will encourage you as much as it is encouraging me!

May all of us who have accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior struggle well as we wait in hope!
