Wow….. yesterday I met a girl who was in an
emergency foster care with her little brother. I
think she was about 12 or 13 years old. She was
so desperate and scared. I felt terrible for them!
She said she has been practically raising her own
little siblings by herself and now her mom and dad
is in jail. She was so worried about not being able
to stay together as a family! We cried and prayed
together… Today I just can’t stop thinking about
her. This is real life you guys!
I feel very grateful for my family! We just don’t
know what we have until we loos it, or see other’s
suffering in their situation. What is going to
happen to this sweet girl?
Life will be difficult and hard for her. But you
know our Father is a loving God and in the midst
of the storm he will watch over her and he will
show her that there is hope through Jesus. These
kind of situations happen and we don’t know why.
We must not believe the lies of the enemy and
know God is in control! He is Almighty and he has
his reasons that is not for us to know. Meanwhile
we have to trust that he loves us unconditionally
and he’s able to deliver us from hardship and
suffering. Our hope has to be planned in the truth
of the gospel and trust our Father.
In Romans 15:4-5 it says
“For whatever was written in the past was written for our instruction, so that we may have hope through endurance and through the encouragement from the Scriptures. Now may the God who gives endurance and encouragement grant you to live in harmony with one another, according to Christ Jesus”
This girl was praying out loud in front of my whole
church family with no shame in her desperation!
( If you know teens you know they are very
anxious about that kind of stuff)
She was looking for help in her terrible situation
and she reached out to the Father in that very
moment! My heart brakes for her and all the
young kids that are going through hard times like
If you are reading this and you are in the midst of
a storm, don’t EVER give up hope! There is a
Father who cares for you and your feelings! He
wants to know you intimately and expects you just
the way you are!
His supernatural LOVE can heal all the deep
crevices of your heart, all the hidden places that
no one knows about. Reach out, pray! Never give
up hope and know He loves you so much!
