Prayer request...

I'm not at liberty to elaborate but I would like to ask all of you to pray for a family that is going through a heartbreaking time in their lives. God knows who they are and He holds them in His hands.

I was having a conversation with a friend and we were talking about why God does what He does. I've come to terms with the fact that this question has no answer. I'm currently reading Corrie ten Boom's The Hiding Place and she touches upon this question but with a very beautiful and eloquent answer:

"Some knowledge is too cannot bear it...your Father will carry it until you are able."

I've always contended that my human heart couldn't possibly understand why we've been chosen to carry this particular burden but we all have our own individual loads to carry. Why the load has never been too heavy hasn't escaped my attention. He helps me carry it everyday.

I love you, Father God, for never leaving my side and for always carrying the load just enough to make life a joy again.
