Jeremiah 29:11 – For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Here is a brief article written by RC Sproul Jr. regarding a recent medical emergency with his mentally disabled daughter on the heels of the death of his wife,  and the love of our  sovereign God. Great, humbling, soul searching stuff.

An excerpt:

“… I know that the immediate hardship I have been through this week is strong plant food for spiritual fruit. I trust Him to break my heart for the sake of making me more like Him. I trust in turn that He loves my little girl with a perfect love, that she, because she is my spiritual better, feels His loving arms holding her every day, in sickness and in health.”
