Those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing

Lynn | Rhys-Stephanie-London | Monday, March 29th, 2010

I must admit that in the height of grief, we made mistakes.  We handled things in a way that, looking back, seems almost ridiculous.  But in that moment, decisions made are not always the best, or even remotely like the decisions we would make if we were thinking clearly.  In our pain, we reacted without thinking.  Life does not generally prepare anyone to react logically and lovingly in the midst of incomparable sorrow.

“Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good: Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!…But those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.” Psalm 34:8-10

We reacted badly to our daughter-in-law Stephanie’s hurt and pain in the loss of Rhys, and in doing so we made it worse.  But, in the midst of that we chose to leave this problem at the feet of Jesus.  I kept going back and picking it up, until Michael told me one day, “Just leave it there, Lynn!”  I had to actively seek God’s will in this matter.  When I finally let go, Jesus began a great work in me, helping to give me a new perspective and helping me understand what I was too stubborn and hurt to try to understand previously.  As I changed, Jesus began the work in Stephanie as well, and even in little London.

Oh my gosh, what a work He did. God is so faithful when He says those who seek Him shall not lack any good thing.  God has blessed us in spades!  Stephanie has grown into a thoughtful, considerate and mature young woman with understanding beyond her years.  London is a ball of sunshine in our lives.  And, best of all, I think all is forgiven between us.

Thank you, Jesus, for the innumerable blessings.  Thank you, Stephanie, for everything and for letting us share in the joy of London.  We totally see what Rhys saw in you when at 19 he unabashedly told us he would marry you.

We love you Stephanie and London – always and forever!

    When we ask the Lord to see others and our circumstances through His eyes and not our own, MIRACLES happen!
