I just saw this post on Twitter. It's been retweeted several times already this morning, but this could not be more true. "We don't realize that God is all we need until God is all we've got." I couldn't tell who it was attributed to, but it says it all.
And I would guess that some of us soon forget this once other things start returning to our daily lives.
There have been times in 2009 when I thought that I didn't even have God. It's been a horrific year for our family; the depths of which we shall not soon recover. Clearly, we'll never be who we were at the beginning of the year. So many things have affected us.
Satan has been attacking us and I've said in this space, and my soon-to-be retired blog over on www.DadsCenter.org, that at times I felt like a modern-day Job.
Please keep praying for our family. The forces of evil have struck us with some considerable blows this year, but with God in our lives, we shall prevail. Thank you, God. With you, we don't need anything else.
What an amazing quote. I had no idea that you had such a hard year. Richie and I had a difficult year as well, although reading this, I’m not sure it was to the extent of yours. You will certainly be in our prayers. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and your heart.
