A few weeks ago, I introduced you all to my new friend Tracy Steel from One Degree Ministries. She is a precious sister who I am grateful to have met this summer at She Speaks. We all were blessed by her guest blog post, Beauty is Soul Deep, which was written just for the readers here at pressing on toward the goal. Her words were timely for many and so very encouraging. What most of you probably did not know was that post was written while Tracy's Mom, Roxie, was battling cancer. This afternoon, her mom won the fight against breast cancer and went home to be with Jesus. Roxie fought the good fight, finished the race, and kept the faith.
In the midst of many recent changes and hardships, Tracy's faith and joy have been evident, even from afar. Her eyes are fixed on Jesus and, even in the tough times, she is an encouragement to others. Please keep Tracy and her family in prayer during this difficult season.
Praying that God's grace would be poured out in abundance upon you and your loved ones and that He would be greatly glorified.
We love you, sister.
pressing on toward the goal with you...
Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal comfort and a wonderful hope, comfort you and strengthen you in every good thing you do and say.
