I finished relating my story to a woman sitting next to me at Women’s Bible Study. She looked at me intently, searching my soul with her eyes. “You are so strong! I could never go through something like that,” she said with awe.
It took me by surprise - because I wasn’t strong. I couldn’t be strong. Who could go through the tragedy of losing a child and be strong? I was a crumpled up mess inside!!
I took a deep breath and let the Holy Spirit answer her.
“I’m not strong at all. The only reason I made it through that is because Jesus was strong for me. I wouldn’t be here without Him. I would have never made it through that!”
