The Lord cares deeply when his loved ones die. – Psalm 116:15

Do you believe that?

Do you sometimes feel so swamped with sorrow, with hard, with life, that you doubt it? I do. I’m not proud of it, but I do.

I have to keep myself reminded. He not only cares if I lose, He cares if I am lost.

He has a reason. He has compassion. I can trust in that, even on my doubtiest days.

Good people pass away;
the godly often die before their time.
But no one seems to care or wonder why.
No one seems to understand
that God is protecting them from the evil to come.
For those who follow godly paths
will rest in peace when they die. – Isaiah 57:1-2

While I wait for my peaceful rest, I will do my best to dig down into the peace He offers me here in this life.

I will believe.

Dear God, remind me gently of Your care and compassion on these difficult days. Help me to remember and believe. In Jesus’ Name, Amen…

  2. Shelly- I cannot quote the source of this, but may it BLESS you today my dear friend.

    I am the God of hope, even when everything you love and live for appears to be drowning. When you can’t swim any longer, I am your lifesaver. I am the author of your life who can rewrite and transform any tragedy to triumph. I am the one who will work all things together for your good even when it appears all has gone bad. When you don’t know what to do, be still long enough to allow Me to calm the storm in your heart and part the sea that seems to lie in the way of My promises for you. If you will wait on Me, you will witness My wonders!

    Your Father of miracles
