her husband never even knew she was pregnant. his life was taken from him (and her) 9 months ago.
she has grieved tremendously, but her faith has never wavered. she has praised Jesus through it all.
as i have been praying for her. and rejoicing with her. and watching her and those around her this week, i've been reminded that He hears.
He hears our prayers. every single one of them. and He answers. not always how we want, and sometimes we don't like the answer. but sometimes He blows us out of the water with His creativity and generosity in blessing us beyond what we could have even thought to ask!
in all things. no matter what. these things are enough.
the pain in this world seems like it will break us. how can we not crumble when we hear of yet another broken family...or person...or heart...or marriage...
"So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
