Happy Friday! Next Tuesday, is our son's 11th birthday so tomorrow we're having all the family over to PARTY! This entails much more work for me, but it's so worth it to celebrate another year with our boy.

We heard of the death of a local boy with leukemia this week, who was Nathan's age. It has made us do alot of thinking. That could have so easily been our son.

Why does one child get leukemia and another not? Why did this boy die when our son's friend with leukemia lives on, getting stronger each day? Why does this family have to live with an empty spot in their heart?

I can't answer any of these questions. I have wondered each one. What I do know is that we are not meant to understand everything - no matter how much we want to. I also know that our God is in control, even when things seem out of control.

Does knowing this take all the sadness away? No, but it can bring comfort to a hurting heart.

What are you struggling to understand? What difficulties are you holding against God?

I encourage you to allow God to bring you comfort. Yes, I said allow - you have to allow God to comfort you. He is bigger than your situation. He is bigger than your past. He is bigger than what someone has done to you. He is bigger than you!

Give it up to Him. He is much more capable of handling it than you! Give it up and let Him comfort and heal you.

Have a great day and weekend in His peace

Living fearlessly in Christ
