I just finished reading the latest post off this ladies blog, (some of my blog friends follow her blog and subsequently I've been following).
I can't help but get emotional when reading about the trial their family is going through.
The reason I am posting about this is, I found one quote from her particularly powerful...
"Resting in God's unfailing grip." (when describing how she is coping through her child's illness).
When we trust in Him, we can know that He holds onto us, walks beside us through anything and everything and NEVER, ever lets go...ever. And we can rest in it. There may be better scripture to describe God's unfailing love, this one fits too...
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
As it is written: "For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered."
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,
neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Now that's a promise!
