Please bring my friend Becky to God in prayer, along with her husband, son, and daughter. I learned today that their 7 month old son Seth went to be with Jesus during the night last night. He was unable to see, and had been having issues with seizures, and most recently feeding, but this was certainly unexpected. I just feel so heartbroken for Seth's Mommy and Daddy and big brother and sister. Even with the loss we've had, I really can't imagine what they are going through, but I can definitely relate. Please ask the Lord to bring them peace like a river, as only He can, and to wrap them in a blanket of His comfort and love. We thought Seth and Eliana would have played together on earth, now they are exploring heaven together.

Today's passage on was Job 19:25-27
I know that my Redeemer lives,
and that in the end he will stand upon the earth.
And after my skin has been destroyed,
yet in my flesh I will see God;
I myself will see him
with my own eyes—I, and not another.
How my heart yearns within me!

Seth is seeing Him now, with his own eyes, and after being blind on earth, he has already seen more beauty than those of us here can imagine. He had mostly lost the ability to smile, but in heaven he is filled with joy indescribable!

And that is our hope as well. Even in the midst of unspeakable suffering, Job was comforted only by that one sustaining thought: my Redeemer lives, and one day I will see Him with my own eyes.


  1. Praying for your friend. My heart breaks every time I hear of another baby going home to be with our Lord. Bittersweet comes to mind.

  2. Praying for your friend and her entire family...My heart breaks every time that I hear a mommy has joined our sad, sad club...

    (p.s. I sent you friend request on fb)

  3. Praying for their family in this heartbreak. xxx
