Blood Flower by Elizabeth Vanduine

“I have trusted in your steadfast love; my heart shall rejoice in your salvation.”

–Psalm 13:5

I follow a calendar that shows a daily verse for meditation.  This one definitely hit me in the gut, for shortly after reading it, I got word of serious news from someone I cherish dearly.  Then I heard a whisper saying, “Place your trust in Jesus — you and your loved one are completely at His mercy, is where I want you to be.”  I began to pray feeling numb.  I don’t know what will happen next.  I do know I should not have any expectations except to see divine healing approaching.

With Advent around the corner, my best hope is:

The Joy of the Lord is my strength” and my relative’s strength.
