Burdened

Within the past few weeks, we have had several close friends dealing with some major medical issues. All of the situations have really been burdening my heart, but I know that there is nothing I can do except for pray. Thankfully, I rest knowing the Lord is Sovereign and in control, and His will will be done. Although, none of these situations would have been what we would have planned, thankfully this didn't surprise our Lord. I can definitely say that I have seen each of our friends grow closer to Christ through it all and I have continually been humbled watching each of them give all the glory to God, no matter what the outcome may be. I also have absolutely loved watching them use their horrible situations to witness to nonbelievers and sharing the hope only found in Christ! I don't know how people make it without Christ. All of these situations have also reminded me how short our lives on this earth truly are and I pray that my life will daily reflect Jesus and point others toward Him.
