Grandpa Ray

Yesterday morning I found out that my Great Grandfather past away… so I will be going to his viewing/funeral tomorrow and Wednesday… its really odd because on Saturday when we were at my Wife’s extended families Christmas her grandfather was talking about everything happening for a reason in our life… and I am a firm believer in this… I feel like we have been surrounded by death recently… but to everything there is a season… and you know things die out in the fall… but the spring brings new life… and that is what I keep telling myself… new life is on the way!!!!! There is an old song and I’m not sure what the name is but it says

Precious Lord, take my hand,
Lead me on, let me stand,
I am tired, I am weak, I am worn;
Through the storm, through the night,
Lead me on to the light:
When my way grows drear,
Precious Lord, linger near,
When my life is almost gone,
Hear my cry, hear my call,
Hold my hand lest I fall:
When the darkness appears
And the night draws near,
And the day is past and gone,

I won't lie, I feel worn thin... but I know that the Lord will never put more on me than I can bare... and I know that I am not going through this alone... I know that God is my strong tower... and I know that he is my strength... I can look back at the bible... and those stories in there... those people went through some serious situations... but God was with them... and I know he's with me too.

aaI will be praying for you guys. When you have God in your life, you become very strong in situations like this, I think because we know that God is going to help us through them and as you said the people in the Bible that went through extremly hard things, yet God brought them not only out of those conditions, but went the extra mile to bring them above them. I just taught the story of Peter being thrown in jail in Olivias' class at church last night. Peter was innoccent but got thrown in jail and his friends were praying and praying for him and he ended getting out. God brought him out and above his situation. Prayer works no matter what the situation or how big.
Love you guys!
