“In moments of great trial, you draw on the resources that you already have.”
Pastor Korver spoke these words to the congregation eight weeks after the unexpected death of their 27-year-old son Kirk. This was also the message from Kevin, his wife Laine, and sons at Kirk’s funeral.
What do you know for sure?
What do you have in your mind and heart to draw on when times are tough?
Because tough times are coming for each and every one of us. Do you have a shepherd?
Psalm 23: The Lord the Shepherd of His People
A Psalm of David.
The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
3 He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever. (NKJV)
