2Corinthians 1:3-5, All praise to the God and Father of our Master, Jesus the Messiah! Father of all mercy! God of all healing counsel! He comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us. We have plenty of hard times that come from following the Messiah, but no more so than the good times of his healing comfort—we get a full measure of that, too. (The Message).
When got the news I rode my motorcycle hard to San Antonio and arrived about 10:30PM, 5 minutes before they wheeled my brother in for a liver transplant. He could not stop crying at my sight and my heart was breaking inside. God, why do we have to wait until things get this serious before we focus on what is truly important!!?? By God’s grace the 8 hour surgery went very well and I am very grateful. But it makes me think of so many who are hurting in one way or another and need the love of Christ through us!
