Sovereignty.....

For the past few days I've been keeping tabs on a precious family (via their blog ) I found out about it through my friend Traci. They had a baby girl named Copeland that would have been 9 days old today.Her mommy & daddy found out just before she was born that she was very ill & wasn't expected to live through even the first hour. Last night around 5:30 pm she went home to be with Jesus . I have witnessed some things so incredible & miraculous since first finding out about this family. First is the innate strength & courage of believers who know His voice & are believing Him during a time when it is all that you can do to simply open & close your eyes. When the pain of merely existing through something is almost not worth it, to put one foot infront of the other is nearly more than you can muster, & still.... still you believe Him. She writes about as the people from the funeral home come to take the babies body last night she felt compelled to chase after them to get her baby back...Oh my heart breaks for her........I cannot even put into words the feelings that this envokes in me....
The second thing that has really gripped me as I have stayed close to this family's blog is the sheer volume of comments from Christians who are ' standing' on behalf of this sweet family. I -AM-BLOWN-AWAY! Last night over 550 posts, prayers, lyrics to songs , words of love and heartfelt burdens people are feeling as we read daily, hourly about what's happening within those four walls. Stories to bring some peace, stories of love, His love.... People from everywhere that haven't ever met this family in the flesh are on their knees , on their faces pleading to the Father on their behalf, and I can just see how God is using the sheer volume of believers who are loving on this family to pour out His grace. It has set afresh on me Gods vow to be with us during the fire. To encamp us as we endure something none of us can ever make it through without Him....
I will never Leave you, Or Forsake you....
