Challenged, because I feel like I’m fighting a battle daily to survive and try to understand.
Strengthened because without my faith in God, I would have nothing or no one to lean on. I wouldn’t have the assurance I would see my son again.
challenged. I prayed, daily, for my son and for his salvation.. Then, to have him killed in an instant makes me question why my prayers weren’t answered. That being said, I cling to what a co-worker told me. – :God is too good to be unkind, He is too wise to be mistaken, and when you can’t trace His hand, that’s when you must learn to trust His heart.”
Strengthened. I have faith i will see her again. That my grandparents are taking care of her till i get there
Challenged for sure!
My faith has been strengthen in my grief. My child wasn’t supposed to live past her first birthday. God blessed us with 25 years. To him I give all the glory for giving us so many wonderful years.
Strengthened for certain. In the midst of feeling shattered and broken, I know I could not have survived Drew’s death without God in my life. I cannot count the times I cried out to Jesus. I cannot count the number of my tears He has saved in a jar. My belief in eternal life has kept me alive until the time God calls me home. I would have been suicidal without knowing, believing these truths.
Definitely challenged. When I went to be the night Levi died I realized that I was going to find out whether I really believe in heaven or not. I have found that I definitely do and also find that I am much less attached to this world and long for heaven, my true home.
Challenged. My name is Faith also. I was angry at God. “Why would He send Ashton,my grandson, just to take him back in 10 weeks ” it took quite a while to get through that.
Strengthened. I know without God, I never would have gotten through those dark days. He is in control and needed Ashton back. I can’t wait to see him again.
I find myself believing that if there is a God, he is a cruel and sick being. He couldn’t protect an innocent child holding so much pain that he took his life this past September. The subject of God, at this time, is something I want nothing to do with.
Very much challenged. We started up back to a church down the street from our house. It’s not actually a ‘church’, they hold it in the grange hall. Very few people, but we like it. That’s about all I can say.
