All I know to say is Wow!! I've never had to experience this kind of grace. We hear preachers preach that there are different kinds of grace. I believed it because I believe God knows just what we need for every situation. He does say in II Corinthians 12:9 "...My grace is sufficient for thee:..." and He does not specify what kind of grace that is. Then in Philippians 4:19 "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." I've heard so many times this verse preached in relation to physical need. I believe God is saying that He will supply ALL our need. No matter what the need is. And right now I NEED His grace!! And you know what...He is supplying it.
There is an update in the case concerning my brother. I mentioned in my previous post that they had a suspect in custody. The update is that they have charged him (after questioning him) with murder and arson. He is a 48 year old man and did sustain injury to his face as a result of the attack on my brother. That shows my brother did try to defend himself. It has also been released that my brother was not shot but sustained multiple stab wounds to his chest. We are still awaiting autopsy results to determine the official cause of death. My brother was killed before the house was set on fire so the man is not being charged with capital murder. If he had killed him then set fire on the house with my brother inside it would be. I have forgiven this man for what he has done to my brother and our family. He needs Jesus!! I would love to have opportunity to talk to him and witness to him but I'm not sure that will be possible. Please pray that he get saved through this as well as others.
Thank you so much for all the comments and emails I have received expressing condolences and prayers. They mean SOOOOOOOO much!! I have my moments when I can't believe this is actually happening...but as I read the Meridian, MS news I see that it actually is.
We are leaving tomorrow morning to head to Mississippi. We will be staying overnight until Sunday since my husband has to work on Monday. I just need to see my sister and my parents right now....so that is the only reason for my going there.
I love you all and thank you very much!!
