Heartache is universal
There is really no way to understand the pain that the family of Steven Curtis Chapman is going through today.
Just a reminder that heartache is universal. It is no respecter of power or position or prestige.
But also a reminder that hope, too, is universal.
Sometimes hope is the shadow that comes alongside heartache, present but not in the foreground. Other times hope is the sun hidden behind the clouds, ready to push through the tiniest little opening in the darkness.
But for the grieving Chapman family (and the unknown thousands and millions who are grieving for other reasons) I pray that today (or one day soon) hope will show itself as sweeping tidal wave, surrounding them on every side and reminding them that hope is always greater than heartache.
