I heard a quote a little while ago that said “If you lose your voice, don’t be afraid to go quiet.”
This resonated with me deeply. It gave me permission to not post for awhile, as I was at a loss for what to say.
It has been a hard few months of constant loss and suffering in our community. It has shaken me to the core. I am on my knees and in tears so often for so many.
There have been some joyful moments, but to be honest, this season, the joy has been few and far between.
Today a beautiful friend in Canada lost her battle with cancer.
She leaves behind a large and grieving family in Australia who never got to give her one last hug because of COVID.
She also leaves behind a husband and three little boys. She fought so valiantly, but cancer is a horrible disease that reigns in our broken world.
Her incredible faith will live on as her life touched many.
Would you please join me in praying for Linda Wilton’s family? (Dan and her three boys, plus the Kilgus family in Australia).
Please don’t underestimate the power and gift of praying over someone who is suffering.
When we lost Helen in November, I can attest to feeling so incredibly held and at peace. I know I only felt this because of the many people who held us up in prayer.
“The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” James 5 v 16.
Sending you lots of love friends. I pray you feel held by the Only One who has all power and majesty.
