Last week one my best friends sent me a text while I was at work letting me know that one of the guys I went to college with (Vanguard University) lost his wife. She asked if I would pray for his family and directed me to their youcaring site. Now let me preface this by saying that this man and I weren't extremely close. He was a good friend of my roommate, and I knew him through her. But reading through his heartbreak, broke my heart. Sometimes I think social media is such a fire breathing dragon, but as I read through John and Laura's story, a love story that put Jesus first even in their suffering, I realized that social media can be used for good too. Over 200,000 people viewed their pages. Over 200,000 saw John's prayers and saw a man even in the midst of unimaginable pain still singing out that God is still good. What a glorious reminder, that even in the thick of the muck and the slime that happens in our life, that yes, God is still oh so good. If you have it in your heart to pray or give to this sweet family click here.
