Who contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations. Romans 4:18
Whenever I drive past the local children’s hospital, I see many windows. I know that behind those windows are very sick children and parents living through the most horrible moments of their lives. There is nothing harder than not being able to rescue a child from pain. Yet each day, in hospitals around the world, parents give up their right to protect their child from needles, monitors, chemo treatments, and IV machines. Though the road to healing can be painful, God is very close to these families.
During this fourth week in Lent, if you drive by a hospital, pray that God will give all those who are suffering the gift of hope. Your prayer may be answered in a way that you will never know.
