If you had but a brief message to speak to someone looking to you for guidance what would you tell them? I think about this a lot as a parent feeling a burden to leave an impression on my kids. What will they understand I believed about life, God, everything? How would I sum it up?
Let me give it a shot.
Despite what you see and the hopelessness it induces, hope exists. God has shown time and again his relentless, persistent grace. The shattering of life is an unfortunate and terrible prelude to God’s work of putting it all back together. So if you’ve lost your way in darkness, trust that he has not, and let the power of such hope guide you into the company of those found in amazing grace.
