Where do you go when life as you know it is turned completely upside down? It happened to me. The life I knew and loved vanished on August 7, 2013 when my college sweetheart and husband of 33 years chose to end his life. There are not words to describe my shock and devastation. Though I was surrounded with wonderful, loving people, none of them could restore the half of me that died that day. This was a God-sized task! This is my journey through shock, grief, mourning and healing. It is the very personal and profound journey I took to ultimately discover that no matter how deep your pain…God is always there and He is enough. If you are grieving, God Is Enough will give you hope. I understand what you are going through, and I am here to share my message of hope, healing and faith.
M.E. Louis is a native of North Carolina. She grew up in Chapel Hill where she attended the University of North Carolina and met the love of her life, Tate, who became a pastor. After 33 years of marriage, Tate took his life on August 7, 2013. God is Enough is her story of hope, healing and faith.
The Bible is full of God's promises. I clung to many of these promises as I maneuvered one step at a time through life. These were like God throwing me a lifeline when I was drowning. God promises in that He will never leave me or forsake me. And that He is always by my side. God is trustworthy. He is unable to lie, therefore He keeps all His promises. I can hope in them. I can take God at His word just as Abraham did...no matter how impossible it appears...like a baby, your first baby in your 90's!!!
Check out the unbelievable story in the following scriptures.
Genesis 18:9-14: Genesis 21:1-7
God is Enough
“You keep track of all my sorrows. You havecollected all my tears in Your bottle. You have recorded each one in Your book.” (Psalm 56:8 NLT) This verse describes how much God loves and how intimately He cares. Because I cried so much, I would often say to God, “You must have a big bottle!” It was an amazing idea that the God—who created the universe and everything in it—was holding all my tears in a bottle!
