The weather outside is beautiful, the flowers are blooming and the birds are singing. But my heart feels stormy and sad and needing comfort because a sweet friend of mine is hurting so badly that she tried to take her life last night. God, you alone are the God of comfort and I give you my sadness and ask you to replace it with peace and hope in You for my friend and her family. You are the healer and the One who can take us broken people and make us whole. Give my friend and all who love her comfort, healing and hope in You. We are well graced and so loved by You. Cause us to receive that grace and love today.
