So you have pain now; but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you. (John 16:22
Marie got up and began looking for things she could do for others. She began looking for ways to prevent the same tragedy that she had experienced from happening to other families. Today Marie works in a halfway house for young addicts. On her bulletin board she has close to a hundred snapshots of young men and women who call her Mom. The Lord did restore to her a hundredfold what she had lost. The pain of losing her son is still there, but her life is filled with purpose as she and her older friend continue their ministries.
There are lots of ways we in which we get hurt. May we not allow our hurt to keep us from our Father's business.
Dear God, may my pain be eased by doing something fulfilling in your name. In Jesus' name, Amen.
