“We rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope.” -- Romans 5:3-4
I bet you are all wondering "where is my prayer email???" Just kidding you probably didn't notice. But man oh man was it a tough one. I have spent many nights and early mornings these last 6 weeks praying, crying, and worrying. And as I was preparing my kids for picture day (hoping that their hair would stay — even though they never brush it normally) just as we split for the door my middle minion breaks - beyond repair, , a special, one-of-a-kind, irreplaceable ornament!
You see, we all face many challenges. As I have been pouring over the prayer requests trying to distract myself from my day-to-day hurts, loss of a family unit, sickness, loss of water etc, I forgot that by embracing my suffering I am robbing myself of the benefit of the hope and character I could be building in myself and modeling to my children.
I think of our precious Maranatha House and the stories they have as they process through the suffering they’ve experienced — and I rejoice in the Hope that Haiti has.
Thank you for your continued prayer support.
God hears you.
