Ray of Light


Same image that began the last post... but different message.

In the last post it was a picture of a red sky at night. In this post it is a storm with a promise of respite in it, just a hint.

I have news! Things have been darker than I hinted in my post, and we've had even worse news since I wrote the last post... BUT... There is a light shining through the clouds. There is a ray of hope.

If you have prayed for us, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Please continue to pray!

I am going to try to write about it all very soon. There is still danger in all of this, and things might be very bad... but we just had a phone call that hints at good things.

In a nut shell my father in law took a very bad turn for the worse, but there are indications it may be temporary.

I have been giving a great deal of thought to life and death, salvation and damnation, and I have a "I gotta write a post about this" feeling.

May The Lord bless all you greatly.

Your friend and brother...

Will

My thoughts and prayers remain with you, Brenda, Isaac, Jeremiah and your extended family and friends.

Dear Lord, please bless and watch over Will and his family as you do me and mine. Thank you for all that we are and continue to guide as towards all we can become.

Grant us the courage to open our eyes wide in the presence of fear and darkness and overcome them with your light and love.

Help us to guide others toward your embrace.

Help us to remember when we are guided by your grace, our efforts cannot fail.

Please embrace and empower Will to remain the strong and steady servant he is during these trials and allow him to feel the love and prayers of his many brothers and sisters who support him.

Amen

Dear God, I lift Will, Brenda, Jeremiah, Isaiah, and Brenda's Dad up to Your throne. You alone are Sovereign. There is not a breath we take or a moment we live that is a surprise to You. Not the phone call, not what will happen tomorrow; there are no surprises to You ... because You are already there, in our future, as well as our past and present - outside of time - all the time.

Fill this humble family with Your strength, peace, wisdom, discernment, discretion, and love. Shower Your blessings on them and fill them with clarity of thought and dirction and also a unity of mind and spirit. Thank You, our Great and Sovereign and Holy God, I love You, Ame

Through suffering thou shalt find God.

I pray that you shall find the strength to shoulder the heavy burdens placed upon you. I suspect that strength will come from God and a supportive family team.


Regards.

Have recently returned from vacation and am catching up on your posts. I see I missed much. You are in my prayers. May you be filled with the knowledge of God's will concerning all that you need to know in this "storm", and may you also be filled with His peace and grace.
