Strength in Weakness

"My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me." 2 Corinthians 12:9

God has a purpose for each one of our lives. We may not fully understand everything we go through, but there is a reason for everything.
It's hard to keep this in perspective when we experience pain or tragedy. We sometimes wonder why things happen or how much more can one take.
My dear pastor Fellman Cheek just underwent open heart surgery. He had complications & still isn't back up to speed, but he is on the mend & he is still giving God the glory!

His precious wife Donna has stood by his side the whole time. She has been just as vigilant in watching over him as an eagle would over its young. She refuses to leave him or to take anytime for herself.

Unfortunately, they just found out that Donna's bladder cancer is back & she will have to have surgery soon to remove several tumors.

Yet again, it makes you wonder. Why them? Why now? They have just started out of one valley & now they are facing another one.

"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28

Continue to pray for Fellman & Donna! They need all the support they can get.
