This is a Story of Hope episode. These episodes are meant to share the real-life journeys of others who have or are walking out their loss of a loved one. The movies we see on TV do a real good job of highlighting before to after but the truth of how things turn out lies in the middle – after the before and before the after. I’m so thankful for the women who are willing to share their stories because their losses may be more like yours than mine and a word from them could give you a revelation to change your day or even life.
The daily grind, the endless days of tears, the fear of never getting better – those battles are won in the middle and those battles are what we rarely see. Media, be it social or other gives us unrealistic pictures of what is happening in real life, so we compare our situation to them and end up feeling worse.
In this episode, Jane shares her story of losing her husband Dan. He survived and was healing from a double lung transplant (which is a miracle in itself) but then died in an unexpected way. She also shares the many ways God’s presence was made known in their journey and the hope that ONLY God can give now as she grieves his death.
WORD of the Week Jeremiah 29:11.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
