I confess a disquiet in my soul. A grief, a fear. It seems, so far, as though anything which could go wrong has indeed done exactly that.
Yet, I trust in God.
I trust Him. Even though there are those who have mocked my prayers in the midst of this darkness, I know God hears me. Thank the Lord for you dear ones who have prayed for us. And I thank the mighty Creator for you precious ones who, though you do not believe the same things I do, have always treated my heart's love for God with deep respect--who have lovingly sent warmth, light, and kindness our way.
The prophet Zepheniah writes these powerful poignant words, "The Lord Your God is with you. He is mighty to save. He will delight over you. He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing."
I trust in the Creator Who sings and in His Son who weeps with us. Ah, in these are difficult, dark days...May His light shine through my tears--and yours.
