Encouragement

Janet wanted me to share a few things this afternoon that have been an encouragement to us.

This morning when reading her bible, Jordan (my sweet sister in law) came across these encouraging verses in Psalms 107.

23 Some went out on the sea in ships;
   they were merchants on the mighty waters.
24 They saw the works of the LORD,
   his wonderful deeds in the deep.
25 For he spoke and stirred up a tempest
   that lifted high the waves.
26 They mounted up to the heavens and went down to the depths;
   in their peril their courage melted away.
27 They reeled and staggered like drunkards;
   they were at their wits’ end.
28 Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble,
   and he brought them out of their distress.
29 He stilled the storm to a whisper;
   the waves of the sea[b] were hushed.
30 They were glad when it grew calm,
   and he guided them to their desired haven.
31 Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love
   and his wonderful deeds for mankind.
32 Let them exalt him in the assembly of the people
   and praise him in the council of the elders.
-Psalm 107:23-32

We know that God will calm this storm and are so encouraged by verse 30 that says that "He guided them to their desired haven."

Another source of joy and encouragement for our family today has been this song by Kristian Stanfill.



Please continue to pray, there are still so many unknowns at this time. We appreciate your prayers SO much!
