In our facing a new crisis this week in Elaine’s declining health, I sent out multiple petitions for prayer today. Many people responded with heartfelt concern and support. I so needed the Body of Christ to turn to on our behalf.
I cannot imagine life without godly access and Christian brethren during such difficult times. God has sent His children to be earthly representatives of His love for us. As people respond with encouraging words, I see God’s genuine love for me and my family. I received one email from a praying saint where God put Elaine and our family on her heart early this morning before ever receiving the prayer need.
As tears of sadness are mingled with tears of joy, God sustains and encourages us through both physical and emotional pain. God is faithful as He sends His children to comfort us in our grief.
