Have things happened that is beyond your control and has left you reeling in pain and sorrow? Are you wondering how you can possibly go on with life, and if you will ever have joy again? Are you trying to make sense of it all, and asking why, God, who is in control of all things, would have ever allowed the thing to happen in the first place? Are you so down, you don't know how you will ever get up again?
Whether it was the tragic and sudden death of a child or another loved one, a divorce, rejection, a Dr.s diagnosis, etc....
Life was going along smooth and everything was great. Things couldn't have been better. And then out of nowhere in a single moment this happened. And everything changed. Your world turned upside down. You were knocked you off of your feet. The wind blew out of your sail.
And your left wondering where God is in all of this. And why He hasn't stopped this.
Sometimes God calls us through things instead of around them. But He is right there with us through it all. We want God to hurry and calm the storm. But God wants us to find Him in the midst of the storm first.

God does His most stunning work where things seem the most hopeless. God is able to bring hope into your life even when everything seems hopeless. Were there are pain and suffering God is right there too. And there is no better place for the greatness & brilliance of God to shine!
I may not know what you are going through, but I know that I serve a faithful God who is in control all things and has a plan and a purpose for what He allows to happen in our lives. There is no accidents with God and He makes no mistakes.
He will turn your pain into a purpose!
Your test into a testimony!
Your tragedies into triumphs!
Your wounds into beauty marks!
Your setbacks into breakthroughs!
Your disability into a possibility!
All for His glory and your better good! Amen!
As you listen to our family's personal story of loss and hope may you be filled with that same peace, comfort, and joy that I have been. I pray you will be inspired to get up and keep on going. And if it's too hard to stand, remember to kneel. It's down on our knees that He can lift us back up again. When bad things become unbearable, trust that good things are going to happen. That's when God does His greatest work!
Please know there is better days ahead. You will get through this, you will be filled with joy, and have a peace that passes all human understanding. And you can have a full and blessed life after loss. God has a plan for you that is better than you can ever hope for or imagine. Keeping pressing into God and pressing on! He will be with you all the way.
And remember if you need someone to talk to just contact me. That's what I am here for. take a minute and leave me a comment or e-mail me and I will get back to you as soon as I can. And let me know how I can pray for and with you.
