First and foremost, I want to say thank you for words of encouragement always on facebook! I will try to be as brief as possible, but your book has truly inspired me. You never know someone’s story, until they share it with you. You are so amazing and such a strong, positive woman of God! As I stated last night, you are a blessing to the “kingdom of God.” Reading your story brought tears to my eyes. I can relate to so much you shared, especially losing your still born baby. I too, lost a baby when I was 4 months pregnant!!!
When you talked about the loss of your husband, and how you kept praying to God concerning his healing and how the doctor’s told you he will be healed, but not on earth!!! Powerful!!! I realized when my father was sick in 2007, I prayed and prayed and prayed that healing and deliverance would come! Healing and deliverance did come…he was delivered to “heaven” from all his sickness and suffering. Your story is so amazing, and will help so many! We just have to trust God and his will! He doesn’t make mistakes on anything in this life! As you stated, “Let Go and Let God” handle everything…battles, worries, give it all to him!!! Most importantly, leave it at the altar and don’t try to work it out yourself. It’s God’s timing and will, not ours!!!
I got it! The best way I know how to say it! Everything we go through in life whether it is good or not so good, we must praise God for bringing us through it. Give praises, honor and glory to him at all times! It took me a long time to realize that, because sometimes we get caught up in “self” and “self will!” It’s not about us, it’s about the Lord! Amen
I love in your introduction when you say, “in all your getting, get understanding!” When you pray and ask God for guidance, remember, praying produces faith, faith produces belief, therefore, remove ALL doubt and be in expectancy for however God answers! Page 1. That is so powerful, because now I believe, (took me a while to get there) God will do what he says…it is written! Standing on his promises! I’m there Regina! Also, throughout my grief process, I grew closer to God! If you don’t you may not survive the death of your loved one. I had it back to back…Mother, 7 months later, my Daughter and then my Father. I trust GOD completely! Now, sometimes I do get caught up in my emotions, again self and grieve…I go back to God in prayer and get it together!
Oh, I love how you break everything down for instance when you talk about “faith” and the “approval addiction.” I was saying, “oh my” she hit it on the nail! I’m going to re-read because there is always something else you can get even though I got a lot of good information. — Thanks to you Regina, I am moving to approval and love from God!!!
My prayer is that the good Lord bless everything you touch! — DC
