In the 1950's Ricky Riccardo and America joyously said together, "I Love Lucy." Today in prayer I heard the still small voice of God say, "I Love Lucy!" Lucy is battling cancer; and she is not just a number or a disease case to her creator. He loves Lucy. He feels her pain and understands her questions, doubts and fears. God loves Lucy.
I have not met Lucy; but she is on my prayer list and I lift her name to the Father. Her family brought her to the attention of our church family; and we took her under our prayer wing of faith. She is loved by her concerned immediate family, a caring extended family, and the family of God made up of churches everywhere. Lucy is intimately loved by Jehovah Rapha, "The God that heals!" (Exodus 15) I do not know what the future holds for Lucy, but hearing of her faith and testimony for Jesus, I am sure her life is witnessed by many in need of her strength. It could be no other way, because God loves Lucy!
Epilogue: Lucy recently went home to be with her loving Father. Her family and friends grieve. Lucy experiences no more pain and suffering. All her questions are answered as she looks into the face of wisdom. Her witness lives on. (Revelation 14:13-14) Lucy loved God.
