  • His Loving Presence

    Our hearts sank when we learned that our good friend Cindy had been diagnosed with cancer. Cindy was a vibrant person whose life blessed all who crossed her path. My wife and I rejoiced when she went into remission, but a few months later her cancer returned with a vengeance. In our minds she was weak and hardly able to talk, Cindy whispered to him, "Just be with me." What she wanted more than anything in those dark moment s was his loving presence.

    The writer to the Hebrews comforted his readers by quoting Deuteronomy 31:6, where God told His people: "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you" (Hebrew 13:5). In the darkest moments of life, the assurance of His loving presence gives us confidence that we are not alone. He gives us the grace to endure, the wisdom to know He is working , and the assurance that Christ can "empathize with our weaknesses" (4:15).

    Together let's embrace the blessing of His loving presence so we can confidently say, "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid" (13:6).

    By the grace of God, we have such facilities. Praise Lord for all these. Even if we die, we know we're not died because we're alive in Christ Jesus.
