Life is Fragile, People Matter

Life is Fragile, People Matter

My friend Susan’s life was shattered. She had brought two beautiful sons into the world. Nothing could prepare her for loss of her son Kyle to a drug overdose. No mother or father expects to bury their child. The depth of loss drove Susan to her own healing journey to find God’s restoration. Watch Susan’s brief video testimony:

Healing Journey

God leads everyone of us on a healing journey at one point in our lives. Everyone’s journey is different, because we grieve differently.

In the broken, dark moments of our lives we have trouble even taking care of ourselves. We have to choose to respect the unique ways that people walk through their grief. No one knows how the other person feels. It is only Jesus who goes down to the darkest places of our lives.

From Grief to Grace

The wonderful promise of Jesus, is that He is able to take us from grief to grace. He shines the brightest lights in the darkest moments. You don’t realize how terrible loss can be. But we all experience it grief.

We don’t have to wallow in grief. We need the time to seek God’s light to walk into a graceful spot. God can take us out of any crises, no matter how difficult it is!

Dance With Jesus

Dancing with Jesus

We can dance with Jesus at any point in our lives. Often we think about dancing when we are happy. But we can dance our way out of sorrow into His joy. It doesn’t mean that everything in our lives will ever be perfect. Our joy finds it’s place dancing in the arms of Jesus, the only perfect ONE.
