God’s timing never fails to amaze me.
A couple days ago, I posted about how God can resurrect new hope from our hopelessness. The same day I posted this, I received some bad news.
Last week, there was an article in one of the local newsletters in my community announcing that the police were asking for help identifying a man who lead them in a high speed pursuit on a motorcycle – evidently, drugs were involved also.
I found out yesterday that the police received the help needed and were able to identify him.
It was my older brother.
My immediate thought was.. “I’m not surprised”. He has been living this kind of lifestyle for the past 20 years. To be completely honest, I have lost hope he will ever turn from his ways and come to the Lord.
So with this thought came some heavy conviction since I had just written about how God’s power and sovereignty grants us cause to always hold onto hope in every area of life. This is one area in which my hope needs a resurrection.
I share this with you to ask you to pray. Please join me in praying for my brother, Jason; and please join me in praying against this stronghold of addiction that is stealing, killing and destroying many lives in my community – and attempting to steal my hope for my brother and many other people I love.
