I am so sorry for your great loss. I know what it is like to lie down at night with pillows piled on the other side of the bed so it won't feel so big and empty without my husband by my side. I also know what it feels like to wake up in the morning hoping that I was just having a bad dream. I remember the many nightmares and sleepless nights...the endless phone calls and visits...the food that came pouring in and all the beautiful flowers...the people who helped with my children, who cleaned out my closets and drawers. I remember the myriad of unanswered questions that tore through my mind and the ache in my heart.
The days were dark, life was chaotic, and my circumstances were completely out of my control. But God comforted me, lavished His grace on me, and faithfully walked by my side through the valley of the shadow of death. Perspective Ministries is here to come alongside you in this journey with hope and God's perspective to help meet your physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Our prayer is that God would hold you close as you transition from wife to widow.
WidowLife would be honored to pray with you for the Lord’s provision to meet your need, trusting in the promise of Psalm 91, “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust . . . He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.”
