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.
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.
