It’s been an unusual couple of days. After a very busy week, my husband and I drove 3+ hours to relax and enjoy “An Evening with David Jeremiah” in Raleigh, NC. The evening in a packed PNC Arena did not disappoint as we enjoyed wonderful praise and worship songs, a timely message from Pastor Jeremiah, and an extra blessing of hearing the Gaither Vocal Band. It was truly a special night that provided a Heavenly “high” for me.
However, in the back of my mind was the nagging news I had received that morning via a FB message that a special lady from my previous church was nearing the end of her fight with the illness she had been enduring for several years. I found myself praying for her and her family several times during the service as I worshipped. The next morning, as we were driving home, I received another message that she had passed away. In the space of one day, I went from the mountaintop experience in the arena to the heartbreaking news of a great loss.
God has promised to be with us and comfort those who are mourning. I am reminded that Matthew 10:29 tells us that He knows the numbers of hairs on my head, and even when a sparrow falls to the ground. In the good times and bad, I can trust Him. So can you.
