I have learned many things the past 5 years. I have chartered many unknown waters. I have gone from wishing and praying that God would end my life to waiting with anticipation where God wants me to go from here. Only the work of God in my life could accomplish such a dramatic shift. When God says over and over again in His Word that He will take care of widows He means it. I have seen God’s activity and felt His presence in my life like I’ve never seen before. I want Him to get the glory for everything that comes from this tragedy.
Difficult circumstances are inevitable in life. How we respond to them will make us either bitter or better. I have found that suffering has deepened my relationship with God. If I were to sum up in one sentence what I have learned since August 7, 2013 it would be that through suffering God makes His presence known. In life we will experience difficult things. We may not be able to do anything about the circumstance we find ourselves in, but we can do something about how we handle ourselves as we go through it. In Fingerprints of God (Session 6) Jennifer Rothschild makes a great point when she says, “Don’t let your difficult circumstance define you. Let it refine you.”
