The loss of a young person

3:52 a.m. Today's project is to got to Los Angeles for a 7 a.m. appointment to get our son Steven's passport. We are finishing up our breakfast and will be on the road soon.

But when opening up Facebook to post my daily scripture, I saw that a friend of my daughter Heidi's, Robin, had lost her fiance Stephen. They had planned to be married on June 24, 2011, one day before Heidi and Pavel. I will be prayerfully pondering this tragedy--which people would call senseless--but which somehow God has allowed.

10:40 p.m. My prayer is that Robin, her family, and Stephen's family will be assured of Stephen's presence with the Lord today, be comforted in remembering the joy he brought to all of their lives, the love we have for them as the Body of Christ, and that loved ones who do not know Jesus as their Savior would come to Him now.

May we who grieve be able to comprehend what Ephesians 3:18-19a describes as "the width and depth and length and height...the love of Christ which passes knowledge..."
