And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.Philippians 4:19
Why have little faith? I am a child of God. Why have little faith? There's no place that He hasn't trod. Why have little faith? The Father has not, one need. Why have little faith? He'll supply for my every need. Why have little faith? He, himself gives life and breath. Why have little faith? He'll stay with me through my death.
“No good thing will He withhold.” but how is this true, when God oftentimes withholds riches and honors, and health of body for men, though they walk never so uprightly; we may therefor know that honors and riches and bodily strength, are none of God’s good things; they are of the number of things indifferent which God bestows promiscuously upon the just and unjust, as the rain to fall and the sun to shine. The good things of God are chiefly peace of conscience and the joy in the Holy Ghost in this life; fruition of God’s presence, and vision of his blessed face in the next, and these good things God never bestows upon the wicked, never withholds from the godly, and they are all cast up in one sum where it is said, “Blessed are the pure in heart (and such are only they that walk uprightly) for they shall see God.”

My strong Dad, John Kennedy, was diagnosed with ALS on July 19, 2022. He is braving the most devastating diagnosis that I could imagine. In prayer, he refers to this trial as “My great hurt” and I never want to forget this.
On Monday, February 6, 2023 (only seven months after my Dad’s diagnosis of ALS), the neurologist told us that my Dad could contact hospice – whenever he felt ready. I need the courage to trust – just like my Dad. He is the bravest man that I know.
