Our Body, Four Oaks Church, is hurting this week. Can you lose a limb and not feel it, not notice? A sweet couple in our church went full term with their twins, and this week, at their birth, one went home to be with Jesus.
I served in nursery and did not get to hear my Pastors response to our "family". So I am sitting here and listening at http://www.fouroakschurch.com/ (click on sermons, April 26 edition) Of course, I am crying. Praying that our church is everything to this couple.
Answering the question to suffering will never be answered fully until we enter heaven. I can not imagine living this life, watching people I love hurt, and not knowing the answer is coming. My faith in a living God. A saving God. A Christ who knows my infirmaties and pains. This is what bears me up.
What is my foundation on? It is not on fairness. On perfection or a life without pain. But wholely on Jesus name. How will I react to life? The life ahead of me that I cannot plan for?
Lord Jesus make my foundatioin you....
