There is heartache and tragedy in everyone’s life but some people just get more than seems possible to bear. I was told today that Isaac’s birth mom’s (Brittani) boyfriend was killed in a car accident along with his brother. This alone is incredibly tragic. But when you add that to the 30 foster homes, a boyfriend that died in high school, a broken engagement, an adoption and then she recently got back together with her ex-fiance, who is the one who was killed last night. And that is only some of the hard things that have happened in her life. Really God? Really? He also had a 5 year old son who now has no father.
My heart is heavy and burdened for Brittani. Will you please pray for her? Pray that she is comforted by God and runs to Him again. Also pray that the dad survives as he was also in the car and for his mom and son.
I also have some great friends from Bozeman who are going through some really challenging things. Their son had his growth plates prematurely fused together and now they have to have it surgically separated in order for his brain and everything else to develop correctly. What a scary thing for parents to go through! So please pray for our sweet friends Josh, Holly and Mason. His surgery is in the morning at 8:15.
Ugh, my heart is heavy for the people I care about. This is when I have to rely on who God says He is and trust Him more than circumstance. Easier said than done right? This is why it’s called faith.
