We are friends with a couple that are going through some deep waters right now. We've known them for years, done a lot of life together, the good stuff and the messy stuff, shared laughter, tears and prayers. We recently reconnected after losing touch for awhile, then we heard he had a heart attack....we had just spoken to them days before...no warning...their lives were changed in a moment! Now they wait, but their trust is in the Lord.
This is not our story, but it has reminded me of our own dark valleys and how the Lord was always faithful. We are not asked to walk this walk alone, or endure things with our own strength...he said he would never leave us or forsake us
that in our weakness he would be made strong.
"My grace is sufficient for you for my power is made perfect in weakness" Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weakness, so the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ then, I am content with weakness, insults, hardships, persecutions and calamities, for when I am weak he is strong. 2 Corinthians 12:8-10
I don't usually post videos, but this song by Matt Redman has been ministering to me since we sung it in church the other day, I just had to share it.
