Where Will Jesus Lead Adventures in Following Jesus

The Last Three Years

Filed under: Gratitude,grief,Growth — PatrckB @ 10:10 am

My wife died of cancer three years ago yesterday (11/22). It was tough. But The Lord doesn’t lead us into anything that He isn’t prepared to walk with us through.

In the last three years, my walk with Him has grown incredibly rich. He has been my support, friend, and help. Doing the grief work and becoming single again at my AARP-eligible age has been an interesting journey. He has also used the time to bring me incredible healing to some very deep wounds.

The past two anniversaries were tough.

Today, I have been filled with JOY!

I’m am so GRATEFUL that I’ve been through this season. I have grown so much closer to Jesus and I really love that. I’ve had so much healing that has been precipitated from all the pain I’ve been through.

I’m so grateful that, it appears, Lord willing, that this season is about to end and a new season will take it’s place.

So, today, I’m grateful for all that has happened and the end result is that I KNOW God IS who he says He is and He IS doing what He says He will do.
