hurting tonight

"There are only two kinds of people in the end, those who say to God 'Thy will be done,' and to those to whom God says in the end 'Thy will be done.'" ~C S Lewis

I love that quote! It's quite profound, and tonight it has extra meaning. Our oldest son Brent called home tonight. He was in tears, heartbroken. A good friend of his, someone he has spent lots of time with, was killed in an accident today. Brent is devastated. My heart hurts for him and his pain. And I found myself wondering where his friend is tonight. Is he one who said to God 'Thy will be done?' Or did God have to say to him this afternoon 'Thy will be done!' Because I don't know the young man, I don't know the answer. But God does.

Do YOU know the answer? What do you say to God? And what will He say to you in the end? While I'm nowhere near perfect, I know for sure what He'll say to me, and I can't wait! I long to hear Him say "Well done, good and faithful servant." You, too, can have the same assurance. If you want to know more, drop me a note.

My prayers tonight are for my son and his friends, the young men and women who knew Tim, that they would SEE how short life truly is and understand that there are only two choices. And that they would choose wisely...

  1. Oh Jennifer. How sad. We never know when the Lord is going to call us home and I pray that your son's friend is rejoicing with our Savior right now. May His perfect will be done.
