A Good Reminder

“Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God.  He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant.”

2 Corinthians 3:5-6 

Good friends are great nourishment for the soul, breathing life-filled truth, sprinkled with grace, reminding our hearts of what is true.  I’m thankful for one in particular, whose story is being weaved with ours, who I walked with yesterday.  Encouraging each other, we were reminded of simple truths.  We are being held by an infinite God, with almighty strength.  There is no pattern for grief; the days and hours and even years ahead, will unfold in ways we could never imagine.  Rest and contentment is from Him, faith for today is from Him, grace for tomorrow is from Him. 

Here we are resting, upheld by Him.  And only by Him.

Filled with thanksgiving, sorrow, joy, and hope. 
All from Him.

Praying you are reminded that He is with you right where you are today.
