Yesterday, while in Montana, just from Facebook I experienced the loss of two lives, and the beginnings of two others. All four of these completely unrelated, yet at the same time each had it’s own effect on me. In a moment of sadness God reminded me there is still new life happening here, and reminded me that he has two of his children with him now.
I don’t really know how to grieve the loss of someone I considered a friend, but I will learn over time.
I know that God is in control, I know that from the Old Testament as I continue studying and from the New Testament that I recently finished. I know that I can trust him, and I know that he is faithful. Beyond that, there is not much else that can influence my life. To those who have been lost, you are missed. To those who have lost, you have my prayers. To those who have received, receive well and rejoice, because it is a beautiful thing indeed.
