So, yesterday I shared with you some thoughts about grief and the struggles that I and my family are facing right now. If you didn’t read it, you can read it at http://tomvanderwell.net/2014/04/grief-its-not-only-about-dying/.
An amazing thing has happened since then. No, the grief is still there, the struggles are still there, but so many people have reached out, God has spoken in many ways and has said, “Don’t worry, I’ve got this. And I’ve got that. Oh and the other thing that might come up, I’ve got that too.”
Have the troubles gone away? No. Is the path clearer? No it’s not.
But God has stepped up through many of you and said, I’ll lift the cloud, I’ll clear the path, I’ll show you the way. Just trust me and wait for me.
So, this week, this coming Good Friday and Easter and even going beyond that, we wait.
God’s got Good Friday.
God’s got Easter.
He’s got the kids in Haiti.
He’s got me and you in his hands.
Thank you for showing the grace and mercy of our heavenly Father.
Thank you for waiting with me.
