We Can Come Boldly

This past two weeks a series of unexpected jolts have hit our lives. And the aftershocks are still rolling. Not that we don't expect there to be sudden bumps in the road of life for we certainly do and haven't lived this long without experiencing them long before now. Every life has trauma of its own...sooner or later...that's just the nature of the game since Adam messed things up, so to speak. But this series of events is not yet completely played out and we are deep into it and somewhat stunned, to say the least.

Last night was a restless night and scripture after scripture came to mind. This morning a friend emailed this one..."Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need." Hebrews 4:16.

She added this personal note... "We can come boldly to ask for grace and mercy for the situations that we face. Not boldness to get what we want, as some people may think..."

Thank you, Dear Friend. We do come boldly before the Lord. And we thank Him for all things, knowing that He watches over His people and cares for them.
