Jess,

I know this must be difficult for you, too, as you have been so close to this family because of Parker’s House. I’m sure many memories were brought to the forefront of your mind these past couple of weeks, but God gives grace when we need it and He is upholding you now. I am sure the Van Dyke’s are so grateful for the opportunity you provided to them through the Parker Reese Foundation and Parker’s House, and I pray that as you continue on your life’s path, that you will be constantly reminded of what a blessing you and Ashley have been, and are, to so many, especially the Van Dyke’s during this time.

Read and really think about the verse below as it has brought me so much comfort in my own life circumstances (I typed in bold the part of the verse that really spoke to me). Sometimes, as humans, we don’t understand why things happen or how a loving God could allow such things to happen, but to me, this verse explains the reasons why so eloquently: all for God’s glory. I hope this verse helps you to make sense of all that you are experiencing right now.

Praying for you always,
Terra

Isaiah 61:1-3

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
because the Lord has anointed me
to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to BIND UP THE BROKENHEARTED,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor
and the day of vengeance of our God,
TO COMFORT ALL WHO MOURN,
AND PROVIDE FOR THOSE WHO GRIEVE in Zion—
TO BESTOW ON THEM A CROWN OF BEAUTY
INSTEAD OF ASHES,
THE OIL OF GLADNESS
INSTEAD OF MOURNING,
AND A GARMENT OF PRAISE
INSTEAD OF A SPIRIT OF DESPAIR.
THEY WILL BE CALLED OAKS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS,
A PLANTING OF THE LORD
FOR THE DISPLAY OF HIS SPENDOR.
