Just a Reminder

From God Calling:
Help and Peace and Joy are here. Your courage will be rewarded.
Painful as this time is you will both one day see the reason of it, and see too that it was not cruel testing, but tender preparation for the wonderful lifework you are both to do.
Try to realize that your own prayers are being most wonderfully answered. Answered in a way that seems painful to you, but that just now is the only way.
Success in the temporal world would not satisfy you.
Great success, in both temporal and spiritual worlds, awaits you.
I know you will see this had to be.

This morning I woke up and in my typical fashion turned on the morning news, usually about 6:45, I catch the end of the local news before the Today show. The news had a brief story about an SUV that flipped in the 7900 block of Westfield. The passenger was killed, the driver was 18 - no names have been released. All I could think of was the mothers pain. I wanted to know the name so I could reach out the the mother and let her know God will take care of you.
The family will spend time asking Why, searching for answers that cannot be found. They are not answers for this time. It is part of the healing process.

Once I accepted that the WHY for me will not be answered yet, I was able to focus on the blessings and praise God for how He has taken hold of me and walked me through my circumstance.
Today my devotion from God Calling reminded me that God does have a plan, and he has prepared through my circumstance a blessing that I cannot even imagine. I look forward to understanding, but will remain patient for the appointed time.
