One Month Ago Today . . .

 . . .I received a call at 4:30am from my dear sister saying that a very precious loved one had attempted suicide in the wee hours of the morning, and she was in a coma.  Oh, how my heart cried out to the Lord, as I fell to my knees at the throne of grace . . . pleading for God's mercy on her life.  

This is something that you just never think will happen close to home, and surely aren't prepared for.  But so thankful that our Almighty God who knows everything and loves each of us more than we can ever truly fathom, was working on her behalf and interceded, saving her from certain death.

It's still so hard to think about . . . the hopelessness she was feeling, and how we didn't know.  And then, to think how close we came to losing her.

Words can't express what our hearts are feeling as we prepare to see her again next week!!!  We will be rejoicing and praising the Lord from an even greater depth of our hearts this Thanksgiving as she sits with us around our Thanksgiving table!!!!  Thank you Lord, for your incredible mercy, amazing grace and unconditional love!

Dear family and friends, we have an enemy of our souls that "prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour." 1 Peter 5:8 But God wants to give us an abundant life!   "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I (Jesus) came that they may have life and have it abundantly." John 10:10

There is so much more I'd love to say, but time is limited.  I mostly just want to say to everyone reading this . . . .that God, your faithful Creator, loves you SO much, and longs for you to experience His supernatural joy, peace, comfort, and HOPE on this earth that is filled with brokenness!  He has a wonderful plan for your life now, and wants to spend eternity with you in heaven!  If you haven't already believed in Him, and chosen to follow Him . . .please do now  . . .so you can have relief from all the anxiety, pain, and hopelessness that this world has to offer, and experience all that Jesus wants to bless you with!  

If ever you have questions or want to talk about any of this, we'd love to hear from you!  Please contact us!
