The Journey- My Now

    It's not over till it's over..." I continue to tell myself. "I will not lose my battle to OVERCOME." I hope to use my experiences to help a mother, father, or sister/s, brother/s other relatives, friends, as they go through their own pain. To gain comfort that, 'you are not alone in this fight, trying to understand losing a loved one through violent crime'.

    Speaking from a mother's point of view ... How can a mother continue living in strength from day to day after losing her son tragically? I could have lost my mind, but I cried to God - the one I HAVE come to learn and trust. He reached down in love and He rescued me from the deep dark waters of depression.

    On Tuesday night, I felt so down as I had got some unfavourable news; I just curled up on the sofa with a quilt over me and just said to myself ... "This is just not happening". I just felt like giving up then- but not on God. I just felt I didn't have the energy to fight any more.


    I spoke with my daughter later to see if she wanted to go to that prayer meeting across the road from us, I wanted something to give me a bit of boost, even a positive word into my soul. We went and guess what? the scripture reading was just for me, it was one verse and I felt that I was getting released from this awful feeling, then they prayed for us. Later a visiting minister told my daughter and myself a personal testimony of his overcoming and that lifted my spirit the more. His experience was similar to mine as I felt every thing around me seems to be caving in and I had that big disappointment; but God is good as He comforted our hearts and I felt revived again. This evening God blessed us with visitors, just when we needed some company. Unless you have been on similar journey, where your child has been taken away from you ruthlessly then realisation hits home - you're never going to see your loved one coming through that door... One cannot understand who has not been through that kind of experience. It is hard enough trying to understand the senseless act, what has turned a heart to evil to destroy another human being's life- especially if it's unprovoked? Provoked or unprovoked its unacceptable- Where are the days of sticks and stones, punching or kicking? (not promoting violence) Can we try and bring back some love, in our homes, schools, communities and organisations.


    If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV
