"God is Great..."

God is Great…was a text message I received today from one of my dear friends. As soon as I could, I called my friend to hear about the great news she must surely have to share. She explained that while she was thankful for all the blessings God had placed upon her, her news unfortunately wasn’t so great. Her husband for over twenty years recently announced he wanted to file for divorce. My friend said when she received the news, she started praying and praying. 

“Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow…” My friend calmly told me how she was going to be able to handle this, with God’s help.

“…praise Him, all creatures here below.” I offered my condolences and offer of support for what she must be going through; this was just another in the series of stressful events her family has had to endure in recent years. 

“Praise Him above, ye Heavenly Host.”  I also told my friend how I admired her strength to cope with her encounters. She replied she knew God would take care of her and she feels confident everything will work out over time.

“Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.”

Lord, thank you for giving us the courage to handle those valleys in life and help us remember, all things are possible through You! Thanks for providing the strength to endure and persevere our challenges . Let us always be grateful for the family and friends that listen to our hearts and embrace our hopes. Please continue to provide strength and support to my friend through this journey. Amen.

It sounds like God placed you and others in her life to be the "blessing people". May you be blessed as you walk this journey with her! Julie
