Hope in the Midst of Sorrow

This week my heart is heavy, and I am sure that many are considering what this week means.  Today is Good Friday, and Sunday is Easter.  This is the time when we reflect on what the Lord has done for us.  He gave His life for us, so that we could have life eternal.  There is no greater love.

Throughout my life, I have known so many people.  Residing in several states and attending numerous churches will fill up your address book.  Because of my various medical trials, I have not only volunteered my time in this field, but I have also come to know so many doctors, nurses, and medical staff.  My life has been busy–some might even say chaotic–but the one thing that has always kept me grounded through it all is God’s love for me.  For me, during any joy or heartache, I must remember this one very important truth.

This week has been especially difficult for me because of a loss in my family.  Honestly, you could use the word unbearable.  Do you ever have those times in life when you really believe the heartache you are facing will never subside?  That is where I am at this moment.  Thankfully, it is so wonderful to know that Jesus Christ promises to always be with me.  He will never leave me–no matter how difficult life may get (Deuteronomy 31:8).

I know this post is a bit different this week.  It does not contain the usual peppy, contemplative content.  Sometimes life does not give you joyous occasions or teachable insight you can share with others.  In fact, I would like to ask you to pray for me and my family, and I want to thank you in advance for this.  I covet your prayers at this time.

Also, thank you for your support in reading all of my posts this last year and a half.  I have enjoyed writing for you, and I look forward to better and brighter posts ahead.  I hope that you and your family have a very Happy Easter (Matthew 28:6).  God bless.
