God is Awesome

It has been three weeks since our church lost its youngest member and God has been with all of us each second of every day.

Thank you all so much for your prayers and kind words. I'm sorry I wasn't more frequent with the posting, but I struggled for a while with thinking that nothing else I wrote would seem important or worthwhile by comparison. Perhaps all bloggers have those moments where we have to realize that there may not be much importance to what we write, but we write it nonetheless for whatever purpose it serves at the time.

In the end, I realized that coming back to the blogosphere with a post about how amazing the Lord has been in these weeks would be a good primer. In the days following their son's death, the parents said how they could feel the prayers of so many people and they knew that God was answering them. They never knew that God could give them so much strength, but He did, because He is, in fact, Awesome :)

For me personally, the strength of this family's faith has been an incredible encouragement. Their kind words at each meeting and their willingness to praise God and be a witness for His glory have not wavered. We read in the Bible how God will never give us more than we can handle through His strength, but seeing it in action makes it all that more fantastic.
