Getting Real About Life, about Love, and about God

Thank God it's Friday!
This week I can't help but give God thanks for the rescue of the 33 miners in Chile. I, like many of you, watched as one miner after another was lifted from the darkness into the light. I had tears each time they were reunited with their loved ones. I watched and was grateful, thankful and in awe of what can happen when the world comes together to work for a common purpose of good. I know that the days ahead will be difficult for the men who went through this experience. I continue to pray for them and their families and I know that the God who was with them and sustained and protected them throughout their time buried underground is with them in the light of day. He is with us all. He is with us in the darkness calling us into the light. He is with us through our difficulties and he is there to rescue us and to bring us into His light. He is with us on the mountaintops and he is with us in the valleys. He never leaves us or forsakes us.
God is good all the time and all the time God is good. Thank you God for desiring that none of us should be trapped in darkness and for rescuing us, through Christ death on a cross, so that we could walk in the light.
In Christ's love and mine,
