Loss and suffering is part of this fallen world. When Adam decided to go independent of God just by relying on his own ability to choose between good and evil, he disconnected himself from the source of life and fell into sin. The result is fear, suffering, loss and death. Jesus came to redeem us from this death. But at times we do go through loss and suffering in our journey because that translates into a greater glory. He does not leave us alone as we go through it but strengthens us and enables us with His Joy. He also helps us to find who our Father is. It develops our invisible arm of Faith, which would not have developed any other way. Everything works out for good.
Here is a story of one family who found joy and faith in midst of loss and sorrow.
Before she was the “Machine Gun Preacher’s wife”, Lynn lived a life full of stripping, drugs and partying until she found herself facing prison time. She decided to make a deal with God and her life was never the same. This is a story of how committing one’s life to Christ can bring about an eternal transformation. Small decision we make for Christ in our life has eternal impact. As we yield to the Spirit of God and respond to the invitation of Salvation in Christ, our Father from Heaven gets personally involved and takes us on a journey to eternal transformation. He declares us Righteous making us worthy of His family and Kingdom. Our part is just to say Yes to Him and agree to walk with Him and He does the rest through His indwelling Spirit in us.
As a young girl, Jessica’s mother raised her to believe in Jesus. Her father was an alcoholic, and Jessica often turned to God for comfort and security.
“I loved the idea that God was my father in heaven,” said Jessica. “And He fulfilled any of the inadequacies of my real father.”
Today, she warns of the dangers of the occult through her website “Truth Behind Yoga” and her book, “The Shattering”. She says that the truth she was searching for can only be found in one place.”
“The peace that Jesus gave me was this deep, true peace,” said Jessica. “It wasn’t a feeling. It came by faith. And that’s what I really had to realize, is that my relationship with Jesus wasn’t about a feeling. It’s about truth. It’s about faith, even when it’s not comfortable. It’s about trusting Him that He is God and I am not, and that He knows and submitting to that.”
She said, “He never gave up on me, and then I could look back throughout all the years and all of the choices that I made, and I just saw his patience and how His hand was always protecting me. He knew how to bring me back, and He did.”
