In Grief I give Thee Thanks!!

     …..The Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord- Job 1:21.

    Today I'm in grief as I mourn the sudden passing of my son. My deepest fear was- I would bury one of children. But God, who is infinite in wisdom, knows why He allows things like this to happen.

     God has been holding me with ‘His strong Right Arm’, that I have not yet asked -'why Lord' and I am still praying and hoping that I will not ask 'why Lord'.

     My son was murdered on the 13 August 2014, approximately one and a half hour since he left me at home.  My last words to him as I heard the key turning in the door, was..."you're going out"!! His last words to me were, "I'm going to play football” (this has been the norm for my son). Football was an integral part of his life- for years he has been going to the same Football Pitch.

     As I take this journey, I have come to one conclusion that God is my source of survival. He is my strength and my Strong Tower, He is my Provider, most of all- He is my Comforter.

    There are moments in my life when the pain gets so unbearable, my tears sometimes become so uncontrollable... But -'Tears are a language God understands.'

    God has been seeing my family and me through this- He provides people like a family unit who I did not know before.  A relationship was formed from the very night of his passing with those who he had close connection like a family. People came to me saying- I'm auntie this or auntie that, Cousin so and so.

     This experience is teaching me that through God, who comforts me and grant me His peace will send help from whoever He chooses- not where, or whom I look to and that I should look to Him- God alone. Thank God for my personal and immediate church family and others around me.
