After I wrote yesterday's post I kept thinking of other blogs I read, of people who are suffering in other ways and continue to get out of bed each day and move on with life. Many finding joy and peace along the way. They all attest to God's grace and strength in their lives. These people are a blessing and encouragement to me in ways they probably don't even realize.
Or this sweet Mom, Katie.
Or this precious family who face a life of watching their son suffer the effects of Cystic Fibrosis.
Others deal with chronic pain or battle eating disorders or depression or have recently lost a loved one. You can be sitting right smack in the middle of wealth and comfort and truly suffer with these overwhelming issues.
So today, another kick in the seat. Another day to be thankful and to pray for those I've listed above, that they would feel God's nearness and feel his strength envelope them.
