3 Days

I just got this from Beth Moore's blog and want to share and do the same.

The Living Proof Ministries blog will go dark for three days as a representation of silent mourners sitting beside our friends and co-laborers in the Gospel, Steven Curtis and Mary Beth Chapman and their children. We pray that this small effort will serve as a reminder to all who visit here to go face down and intercede for this dear and loving family at this terrible time of loss. We have chosen three days as a symbol of resurrection as we plead with God to comfort them, tend deeply to each one of them, and raise them in the months and years to come from this place of unimaginable grief.

Faithful family of God, our deepest thoughts, love, and prayers are with you and will remain with you for many months to come.

"Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, 'Now the dwelling of God is with men, and He will live with them. They will be His people, and God Himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.'" Revelation 21:1-4

Even so, Lord Jesus, come quickly.

I also have been praying tons and tons for the Chapman's! Hearing about the tragic death of their daughter has made me simply heartsick!
It's hard to imagine the road they have ahead of them and my heart goes out to them greatly! Oh Lord Jesus be with this family! Let them know the comfort and anchored assurance of Your ever faithful presence. Protect them from attacks from the enemy, who would seek to destroy them from within and from around them!
Kacey, thanks for posting these three posts. May we all honor this family by ministering to them now in their great time of need, especially after all the years they have poured into ministering to others.
