Surely he will never be shaken;
a righteous man will be remembered forever.
He will have no fear of bad news;
his heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD.
After I repainted our old little mailbox, I was surprised why I wrote "Good news only" when I knew very well the verse that says "the righteous man is not afraid of bad news". I had to check my heart again...am I afraid of bad news? Or maybe it's just the natural hope of human heart.... I know when the artistic side of me is at work, I just let my heart do the talking, may it be in painting, writing, crafting, etc. I simply express my heart out.... But who wants bad news anyway?!
But when it does come, we know what to hold on to--His word that says our heart will be steadfast at that time, trusting Him.
But what is more challenging to hear is bad news from home....
-dear mother-in-law is very sickly now
-dear sister-in-law fell in coma since yesterday
Our hope lies in the truth that both of them believe in Him and their lives are in His loving care, that's why we need not be shaken by grief....
I appreciate your prayers for dear husband's family.
