Carry You to Jesus

Then Sings My Soul Saturday Meme

I imagine most of you have already heard about the Chapman's tragedy, but for those who haven't...

Please lift up the Steven Curtis Chapman family in prayer.


They are hurting deeply. Maria, the youngest child in the family, died Wednesday. I can't even imagine the pain they are feeling.

"At approximately 5pm on the afternoon of Wednesday May 21st, Maria Sue Chapman, 5 years old and the youngest daughter to Steven and Mary Beth Chapman was struck in the driveway of the Chapman home in Franklin, TN. Maria was rushed to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital in Nashville, transported by Life Flight, but died of her injuries there." (from the official Steven Curtis Chapman site)

It is suggested that in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Maria's Miracle Fund at
Shaohannah's Hope.

Steven Curtis Chapman and his wife Mary Beth founded The Shaohannah’s Hope Ministry after bringing their first adopted daughter, Shaohannah, home from China. The ministry’s goal is to help families reduce the financial barrier of adoption, and has provided grants to over 1700 families wishing to adopt orphans from around the world.

We all know that God can bring good out of the bad. We don't see the whole picture, that's where our faith is strengthened.
Let God be glorified despite this tragedy.

This song gave me chills. I can't imagine the pain their family is in right now. But I'm so glad they have Jesus and can rely upon Him.

I was so heartbroken for them when I heard the news....everyone I KNOW is or has been talking about this. We discussed it with friends after church tonight at dinner again.
I hope they can feel the prayers because they will need strength now and in the days ahead.

What a priveledge it is for us to be able to carry others to Jesus. We have been lifting the Chapman family up in prayer and will continue to do so. Thanks for posting this perfect song.

That must be so heartwrenching to have to go through that. I worry more about the brother who accidently hit her with the car most. I think he may need lots of prayer!
