Bravely Seated

She attends church by herself. Every Sunday morning. Every Sunday night. Every Wednesday night. With the diligence a mail carrier models, she treks through the days, and shoulders through the rain, sleet and snow, into her fierce trials and disappointments.

There was a time–previously in her fond memories–where they all stood as a family, on the old familiar pew. Together was once a feeling of familiarity and comfort. Even though her circumstances have changed, somehow she knows she isn’t truly alone.

Bravely, she takes a seat, hands clasped, fingers locked tight with her promises. “God has seen his ways, and will heal him”….”They will come again to their own border….”

And there is hope in thine end, saith the LORD, that thy children shall come again to their own border.” Jeremiah 31:17

Seated together. Hope. Promises. God. She is not alone.

    1. Vanessa, I’m glad it touched you!🤗 Just know that you are never alone! I know how you feel! I’ve been praying for you and your family! I know you already know that Jesus is always there no matter what, but I hope it brings you a comfort that there are others sharing your struggles and your journey! You are an inspiration to so many. And God is using that! Here is my promise for my husband, and I believe it will work for your family, too. Pray it everyday!
      “I have seen his ways, and will heal him: I will lead him also, and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners.”
      ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭57:18‬ ‭KJV‬‬
      Different bible versions say “their” instead of “him.” You can even insert their individual names.
      God Bless! Much prayer! 🤗
