What awesome faith!

I am amazed at the strength and faith I am witnessing as I had been reading the blog that has captured the world's attention. It is amazing because both of these families have grieved and rejoiced, yet they still hold true to our Lord.
It is the case of mistaken identity. The young woman who was fighting for her life, being called Laura VanRyn who was found out to be Whitney Cerak, who they thought died in an accident. The VanRyn family started a blog to keep updates on. Even since they have discovered that their own was actually the one who died in the accident they are still maintaining their faith and the blog for the Cerak family. Their faith has been in all the papers, from East to West, national and local. Not only has their faith been shared but Jesus has too. It is not being denied because of this horrible mistake. They are sharing Jesus worldwide and it is not being distorted or made into an ugly bitter scene. This is the faith that I can only hope and pray I would have if something similar were to happen to us. Faith so strong that it takes your breathe away.I am rejoicing with the Cerak's and mourning with the VanRyn's, because they are family, the family of God. This woman is going to do great things for the kingdom of God and so are these families, that already are setting an awesome example. And I pray this verse for both families today,
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
So, grab a cup of coffee and prepare to be amazed by reading this awesome display of faith.
