Quote of the Week
It is human nature: when things get tough, we start to doubt God's presence, and we wonder why he is allowing bad things to happen to us.
This weekend I heard a story from a family member about her going to the ER. She had a huge health scare and was worried she would lose her baby (she is pregnant). She was alone at the hospital, waiting for her husband to meet her from work. She started praying and asked "Lord, please allow me to feel your presence because I am so scared". Minutes later, an orderly wheeled her into a new room. He came around the chair, looked at her, and said "I just want you to know that the Lord is with you" and he walked out of the room.
It is amazing how God goes about giving us the comfort we need. He doesn't always prevent bad things from happening to us, but he is there to comfort us, provide guidance, and lend us his strength.
