Fresh Hope – Day 18 (Pastor Gillian)

This week I met with some wonderful people who had just lost their few week old baby boy. He was born premature and wasn’t quite strong enough to make it.

 

As we talked about their loss, I noticed in the corner of their home were congratulations cards on the birth of your baby boy.

 

How things can change… One minute life can be going one way, and then we hit a fork in the road.

 

It’s which way you take when you hit that fork that will determine your future.

 

Your attitude in those darkest times will determine your altitude in the coming days.

 

Amidst all the tears in that room and the very raw, sad feelings, there was hope. Hope for a brighter tomorrow – Because we don’t always know why, but we can trust in the One who does.

 

We may not know what the future holds, but we know who holds our future.

 

And in those very, very sad times, we still know that God is good.

 

1 Thessalonians 5 v 18

‘Give thanks in all circumstances for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.’
