TODAY’S READING
Psalm 121:1-8

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
There is no suffering that God can’t redeem.

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. – Psalm 121:1-2 (KJV)

In 2007, my 29-year-old son, Deon, was murdered. He was a loving, caring, and giving person. The grief I endured was tremendous. For months in my brokenness I cried — consumed with unimaginable pain.

One day, I was sitting quietly, asking God, Why? In that moment, I felt God telling me that my hurt could be healed if I would allow it. Finally, the healing process began. I started thanking God for sustaining me and restoring peace deep within me. I also thanked God for having given me my son, for the time we spent together, and the joy we shared during his lifetime.

A few years later, I found myself witnessing to others who had also experienced the loss of a child. I felt even closer to God as a result. I learned true forgiveness and compassion for others as I shared my experience with them. God can redeem acts of evil and the suffering that follows. For me, these encounters with others who are grieving are examples of such divine redemption.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear heavenly Father, thank you for your mercy. Thank you for giving us strength during our most trying times. Amen.

PRAYER FOCUS
Those grieving the tragic loss of a loved one
