My family and I are going through a really rough time. Really, really tough. The truth is, it isn’t going to get much easier for us in the coming month…year…or more. Life is forever changed.
Now isn’t the time to go into details about our situation, but I would really appreciate your prayers for us.
The thing is, as hard as this is, I have faith that we will get through it. I am telling my kids, we are ‘Overcomers’ and we will survive. When I drive our van, I hear them singing the song behind me, and I cry, yet I believe it.
Our situation isn’t a good one. There is no way to spin it into being God’s will for our lives.
Living in a fallen world means that bad things happen, people make bad choices. I don’t believe God caused or wanted this future for us. He gave us free will and that means that choices aren’t perfect, and they often hurt others.
Our future isn’t always what we want it to be; what we thought it would be. What we blindly trusted it would be. It isn’t always God’s best for us.
But I know that even though this isn’t the life God wants for my family, that he will be with us and will bring about good and blessings in spite of it all. He will redeem the horrible. He will dull the pain and heal the brokenness.
Over time we will heal and we will thrive.
I plan to do my best to keep the blog going; I’ll still share about our blessings. The truth is, I am blessed even though I am wounded.
Already the amount of love and support given so freely by our family and friends is humbling. We are loved, we have support and a soft place to land… and we will survive this.
