THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: A FAMILY GRIEVING…BUT VICTORIOUS. As the family of God, The Church of Jesus Christ, brethren and fellow believers we all pull together at a time like this. We are part of an amazing church and fellowship. One of the pastors and his wife here in Bolivia flew in to help Yolie and myself deal with the details that need to be taken care of, more are coming tomorrow. All around the world the saints are praying and are grieving and rejoicing along with Yolie, Joshua and Jazmine, Yasser and the church here in Santa Cruz. The women in the church are pulling around Yolie to help and comfort her and the disciples are ready to take charge, provide leadership and move forward. It is amazing to behold the faithfulness of God and of His saints. [1 Corinthians 12:25-26] “…that there should be no schism in the body, but that the members should have the same care for one another. And if ONE MEMBER SUFFERS, ALL THE MEMBERS SUFFER with it; or if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it.” We are all pulling for Yolie and family. As we represent Christ we are able to wrap arms of love, comfort and compassion around them. There really is a supernatural dimension that takes over. We are strengthened with the strength of Jesus in such times. As we are preparing to welcome Yolie back into the church in El Paso let’s all be in prayer for God’s grace to be more than sufficient and we know it will be. A FAMILY IS GRIEVING…BUT THEY AND US ARE VICTORIOUS IN CHRIST JESUS.
