I don’t know whether or not this family believes in Jesus. Their story should be a testimony to all of us, though. Our circumstances – past, present or unknown future – don’t define us. Jesus does. We are secure children of God, who have a choice how we approach each day – victorious through it or victims to it?
“Death where is your victory? Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Jesus took the ultimate lousy day and turned it on its head. Circumstances for the secure child of God don’t have to be rosy; how we approach them can be.
The same Jesus who rose from the grave, lives inside you. So rejoice my friend, despite your circumstances, because your Lord is near.
