There is no other word to describe what has happened. People may want to use this time to debate different social issues but this is not that time. All those beautiful babies gone. Not gone really, but in the arms of our ever loving and everlasting Savior. Yet...gone from the arms of their mommies and daddies. Oh, how we need to remember that life is like a then in a moment gone. Those sweet babies will never know all the wonderful things that they would have brought to all those that love them. They will also know no suffering. Dear Lord, Your ways are too high for us...who can understand them. We yield to your sovereignty and trust who you are. You are the God of ALL comfort. Comfort those who are in their greatest hour of need. We yield to You and in that we find rest.

See God in Everything and Everyone

I read this saying this morning and was thinking about what it meant to me and just wanted to share. What it means to me is that God sees the heart of each and every person. I only see the outward...what is visible to my eyes. My eyes...that are skewed by my own hurts, imperfections, misconceptions and prejudices. God calls me to see beyond that. To see the hurting, apathetic, forlorn, careworn, discouraged, unloved, misunderstood, rejected heart within. That heart that may act out in sometimes unappealing and offensive ways. To desire, by God's leading and strength, to reach in and connect with that person and have the courage to disregard the crusty outer shell and to touch the true person within, who only God sees. Seeing God in each situation means to me that God is in the waiting. Whether it's waiting for a spouse, a job, a change of situation within your own life, even waiting behind that slow driver that is making you crazy. God has His control over every situation and He requires us to yield to His timing; trust His wisdom and trust His sovereignty. We are responsible to maintain a close walk with our Savior and Lord, Jesus, and to seek Him with all our heart. To listen for His voice as He leads us down life's path. As we rest in Him, He will work all things out for our good and bless us who seek Him. This is His everlasting promise to us. :)
