Bearing One Another's Burdens

I have a dear friend who is in the midst of a very severe trial. Her husband has been taken back to the One who loaned him to her. He has left his eight children as well.

I find myself asking, "Why?"

I find myself hearing this answer:

Psalm 145:14
"The LORD upholds all who are falling
and raises up all who are bowed down."

John 17:24
"Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world."

A.W. Pink reminds us:"Contentment is possible only as we cultivate and maintain that attitude of accepting everything which enters our lives as coming from the Hand of Him who is too wise to err, and too loving to cause one of His children a needless tear."

I thank you, O Wise Creator, that you are more powerful and mighty than anyone or anything else. I thank you for loving my friend so much that you have chosen to shower your presence in her life and allowing your life to shine through her.
