If you are visiting from Jeff Goins’ Wrecked website, thank you so much for following the link here. You can learn a little more about me here. If you are walking through grief, especially as a result of losing your child, please take a look at the resources under the “Grief” tab above. Or you might be helped by listening here. There is no greater grief the heart knows than that of losing a beloved child. If you read my “wrecked” story then you know a little of how my faith was tested. Nevertheless, God has proven faithful to me.
What I know for sure:
God is good and He is faithful. Even when things don’t go my way. Even when I feel disappointed in the bend of the road. Because Christ was faithful to endure the cross, I can be faithful to the One who loved me before I knew Him.
Below is an excerpt from the story Jeff Goins kindly published on his site.
Each evening, I laced up my running shoes and ran in the dark. Weaving up and down, I always avoided one particular spot. There were too many painful images associated with the top of our street. Andrew had spent hours playing outside with his friends who lived just a few houses up from ours.
Those evenings under the inky sky, I put my heart on the line with God: “I don’t understand you. You are not who I thought You were. I’m mad, sad, hurt and confused but I’m not leaving you.”
