When you do not see ahead, when you are surrounded by loss and grief, when you are filled with joy and rejoicing, when you are faced with letting go, when every step feels secure. In all these things be at peace, for the Lord guides His beloved children and leads them on from strength to strength. No matter the look of the thing, the one constant is our Beloved Savior, Jesus Christ.
“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
