2 Corinthians 12:8-10
Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weakness, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why for Christ’s sake, I delight in weakness, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
After all we have been through with losing our daughter I can say, AMEN to that!!!!!!!!!!!
Jermemiah 29: 11
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
This was the verse that we used when we dedicated our daughter Jeana to the Lord. It is a very powerful verse and God knew that it would be so fitting. A verse that I would need to hear so very often. And the good part, I TOTALLY believe it. I have seen it. And I am so thankful that God’s will is done in my life.
Short and sweet – but the point is that God is so good no matter the circumstance! I am blessed and honored to belong to Him. To be used by Him. To be loved by Him.
And after all we have been through I can honestly say IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL! My heart will always hurt for her at times but I have peace that God’s will was done. And my friends, that is the most important part.
