Tragedy or Triumph...When We Don't Understand

What a tragic follow-up story to my earlier post entitled "The Answers to the Riddles".

Wife, Son and Mother-In-Law of Tampa Bay Rays Minor League Pitcher Blake Bivens Killed in Triple Homicide by Pitcher's Brother-In-Law

Emily and Blake Bivens and their son Cullen
I won't go into detail but you can read the story on the link below and the incredible article that Emily Bivens, the wife of this Tampa Bay Rays prospect Blake Bivens, who was murdered on Tuesday, August 27th published earlier that same day.

It's hard to understand but "as for God...His was is perfect." - Psalm 18-20

Please check out this link for details regarding this horrific tragedy.

Baseball Chapel, the organization responsible for providing chapel services and Bible studies for professional baseball teams, wrote the following in their prayer bulletin:

"The hearts of the Baseball Chapel family go out to Blake and his family. Blake and Emily are believers in Jesus Christ. Emily has written several devotions for Baseball Chapel's player wives devotion, a daily publication that is put out to encourage and strengthen player wives in their daily struggles. Coincidentally, the devotion below was released the day of her death."

Now take a look at this link to read what Emily Bivens, who was killed, had written earlier about praising God in the wilderness.

We often don't understand God's ways but they are always for our ultimate good and His eternal glory.

Please pray for the Bivens family.  THANK YOU!
