“For you have been called for this purpose, since Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example for you to follow in His footsteps.” 1 Peter 2:21
These words from scripture are truth, but sometimes the reality is so hard to take.This is especially the case when innocent children suffer.
Recently I heard the news that a divorce was going to take place in my family. My nine-year- old grandson and his six-year-old brother are devastated. He said to me the other day as I was trying to console him, “Grandma, I wish God would give everyone just one miracle in their lifetime, I would use mine now.”
To hear words like this breaks the hearts of mothers and grandmothers. In my helplessness I whispered to God, “Help me to help them.”
I realize there is not much I can do but I can continue to love them, and I can still pray.
