3rd post today

got this after school today ... after watching Oprah ...

He Will Respond
Today's Scripture

“Oh, that we might know the Lord! Let us press on to know Him. He will respond to us as surely as the arrival of dawn or the coming of rains in early spring” (Hosea 6:3).

Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
God promises that He is near to those who call upon His name. It doesn’t matter where you are or what you’re going through; He is your deliverer. He’ll bring light into your darkest hour; He’ll bring rain into the dry places; He’ll bring restoration and healing to the broken places. When you call on His name, you can be assured that He will respond. As sure as the sun will rise tomorrow, God will faithfully respond when you seek Him. Sometimes, people think they have to clean themselves up or change their behavior or habits before they can turn to Him, but that’s not what God says. He is ready to receive you just as you are. Even if you feel like a mess, He’ll take your mess and turn it into a message. His arms are open wide today. Open your heart and call upon Him. Press on to know Him and His goodness.

A Prayer for Today
Father in heaven, thank You for always receiving me with open arms. I choose today to give You all that I am. I choose to press on that I may know You. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

I figured if you didn't watch Oprah today, you'd probably quickly hear from someone the story that was broadcast. I, of course, instantly thought of you and wept at thoughts of you, Aaron and your sweet baby, Jeremy.

But, what I thought about the most, brought a smile to my face.

Your story will unfold in its own unique way and how it will unfold is totally unknown. But, what is known is that you and Aaron will place God at the center, He will get the glory, your story will touch EVERYONE around you and your faith will only be strengthened, regardless of the outcome.

My thoughts and prayers are with you daily, friend :)
