Ezekiel 10:1-11:25; Hebrews 6:1-20; Psalm 105:16-36; Proverbs 27:1-2
“For God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love you have shown for his name in serving the saints, as you still do. And we desire each one of you to show the same eagerness to have the full assurance of hope until the end, so that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.” Hebrews 6:9-12
Lauren Hill, battling with terminal brain cancer has hope, has faith in God, has purpose even though she hurts and cannot do the things she once so easily could do.
With the time she has left Lauren wants to serve others, be a part of the team, make contributions both on and off the basketball court. She wants to encourage other young people with cancer to “keep going.”
During a particular trying time earlier this year, Lauren cried out to God “what do you want me to do??” God has answered her by giving her these days to live for him–one day at a time. He has given her the grace to be a beacon of light and hope to others. Her body may be giving out, but her hope and faith keep her light shining bright!
In difficult times, call upon God. He will continue to use you as a beacon of hope and inspiration for others. Your life has purpose and meaning because of Him who loved you and gave Himself up for you on the Cross.
God keeps his promises–He will use your adversity to be a blessing to others. He himself will comfort you and sustain you. He will give you strength to remain faithful to the end.
Lord God, bless Lauren Hill with your peace and love and joy this day. Keep her faithful to the end–until you call her Home. For Jesus’ sake, Amen.
