Happy Independence Day!!! Hope your families have a great day with friends and family!!
I read this verse many months ago and I was encouraged because I felt like it pertained to Joel and Josiah. I was blessed to think its something I can pray now for Joel even though he is not physically here with us. I think its wonderful that the Lord takes each of our situations and allows scriptures to speak to it, giving comfort to the hurts, hope to the longings and encouragement to hold fast until I can see Joel again! With the Lord's help I seek to pray this scripture daily; And the house of Jacob shall be a fire and the house of Joseph a flame.... Obadiah 18 . I pray that Josiah would be a "fire" for the Lord, standing for truth all his days and that Joel's life and his story would be an undying "flame" for His kingdom as well!
