We’ve all read the agonizing stories . . .
- Seasoned hiker in his 40s heads off alone, gets off the trail, slips and falls knocking himself unconscious. Wakes up with injuries and desperate for rescue.
- Exhausted mother leaves her young children home with her husband while she shops for groceries. She falls asleep on her way home and drives off the road leaving no skid marks. Badly injured, she is unable to summon help.
- Prisoner unjustly incarcerated during a war with no way of communicating with the outside world that he or she is still alive.
In each instance, the distraught victims
cling to hope because of their
overwhelming desire to live
and again be with those they love.
During these times we find ourselves in and facing this progressive disease day in and day out, what sustains me is being CONVINCED that my Savior, Jesus, LIVES and clinging to the PROMISE of being with HIM for all of eternity.
Everything else pales in comparison.
