Susan Hines I know there are hundreds if not thousands of people who wish they could somehow change this for me. It doesn’t yet make sense to me why He didn’t change the outcome of this somehow, but I know that whatever His reasons, it was not for lack of prayer and pleading. And that is of some comfort.
Carrie Hammons Of course you do, we all do… We were watching a video today on a series called the heart of Passion By Louie Giglio and He was talking about a story of a young girl who had given her life to Christ and just 4 months later died in a tragic car accident… Her Brother cried out to God and believed him for a miracle just as you did … He new God could save her. When that did not happen that boy said He Questioned God All together and even walked away from Him … why bother he thought…. Then one day he decided to ask God once again ” Why didn’t you save Ashley ? ” and he said that this time it was different, I actually listened he said. I could feel God literally wrap His arms around me and I heard Him Whisper ” I did save her ” You see, he said He reminded me that Ashley new Him & that in reality He did save her from Death and that on that day when I though she had died… He just took her to live with Him. He went on to share I do not know if I will ever understand why God wanted Ashley when He did… And I know that my life will Never be normal again, But I will continue to grow in God’s Grace… and allow Him to comfort me and provide Peace and Hope that are beyond my understanding… Furthermore, he shared that the struggle within is a constant struggle that goes back and forth, some day’s are better then others… Laughing, Crying, Living and Dying… It’s a circle that’s very exhausting ! Continuing in Faith but almost loosing a grip on Hope all at the same time….. He stated that God has never explained it in detail to him … But He Hold’s him and assures him of His love for him and he hold’s on to the knowing that the cross allowed Ashley to live for Eternity and the Cross also tells us that when the bottom falls out we can run towards the Cross into the arm’s of Christ not from Him, Because He is the only one who understand’s. The hope we find in Him allows us to leverage our darkest moments for His Glory. Susan, I know a lot have said they admire your strength and even I said I was in awe of you to be counting your Blessings in a time like this and that your perspective truly is a testimony to God’s unfailing Love for us because of your unwavering Faith in Him even in this, everyone can see the Hope you have only as a result of Christ being our savior and your willingness to share so Boldly that ” You will see her again ” speaks volumes and is so life giving … I heard it once said ” The world down here may think I’m strong, but they are wrong… You carry me ! ” I Know that it is to much for you to carry, you know it is too. You were never meant too… continue to give it back to God, allowing Him to continue to bear it for you… He is giving you the strength you need as you continue to turn to Him. Thank you so much for sharing the most intimate vulnerable places in your heart with us… It is in your weakness that He is made strong… and we are all in this journey with you getting to know Him in an even greater way as a result. XXXOOO Carrie
Susan Hines Thank you Carrie, I just don’t know how to do this. I know that I will survive, I know I’m not the first Mama to know this heartache. But, it is so hard. I live for my God, not any other human, even my children. However, I am so bonded to her that I can hardly stand not to have her in my arms. I thought describing the pain would help. I thought seeking to have the right attitude would help. I thought getting out and doing something, something normal would help. I thought staying in and letting myself rest and cry would help. I thought somewhere I would find peace and strength. But although most of those things helped some, I still find myself feeling so very lost. I lost her, but I’m the one who feels lost. I know it’s a process and I know I’m doing ‘the right things,’ I just plain hurt. In ways I’ve never known.
Petra Alvarez HI Susan – no one expects you to know how to do this – no one can tell you – how – but I have been reading your posts and you are doing the best thing you can- you are leaning on God – because the truth is HE is the only one who can walk you down the road of healing – know that we are praying for you unceasingly – Petra
Daniel Kisimba God is ever there for us and He listens to our cries. Many ask and recieve immediately and many’s prayers take long. It took long to believe I’m an orphan. Even today when I sit and think about my father, I cry but i can live that way. I just have to accept it and ask God to make good and clean path for all those going before us.
Liebe Ziegel Mike’s sister lost her 6 month old baby about 2 years ago. I’m only going to say this to offer some more hope: she and all her family are doing fine now. They’re actually happy! He was (is) a sweet, happy, fantastic child. At the time, it totally seemed like an insurmountable thing. /:
