  1. This blog was a right on time blog for me. Lately I’ve been faithful in my belief and waiting for answers, but there was a time (like you experienced) when I actually cursed God. I abandoned my belief and became almost suicidal. It was the death of my 31-yr-old son. God understood my pain. I was a traveling nurse and he put me on a long engagement at a hospital 1-1/2 hours from my home, where I would work a night shift with two nurses. One was a preacher’s wife and the other was a devoted Christian. They both shared the word of God with me and helped me to turn back to my faith and to the Lord’s plan. It was the His work and love for me that gently brought me back to the flock. He saw His lost sheep and brought her home. Thank you for your testimony.

    1. Dear Phyllis, thank you so much for your comment and for your testimony. I am so sorry for the grief you experienced. But isn’t our God so tender and so good to find us in our grief and lead us back to His comfort? Thank you for sharing your encouraging story with me me and all of my readers!

  2. In September my family lost a very special new member of the family His Name was Levi. We rejoiced when we heard the news of my sister expecting a boy. 4 months into her pregnancy she gave birth too soon due to complications in her pregnancy. We we all shattered as we held out Nephew/grandson/son in our hands. Our blessing of the year suddenly became our greatest pain. A few days later my sister (who lost the child ) told me to listen to this song… We come from a Pastoral family, and in this moment our faith was challenged in ways we never expected. This song defined every moment of my life where my relationship with Jesus and my faith was put to test. This song highlights the darkest moments in life and its sweet melody reminds us we are never alone.

    I really enjoyed reading your Blog!! Thank You for Sharing your intimate life experiences. God Bless You.

    PS. another song that I recently fell in love with, that shares the same message is
    “Oh My Soul”-Casting Crowns.

    1. Hi Catherine, thank you so much for sharing the story of your family’s great loss. I am so sorry for your pain. Just today I heard a quote by Spurgeon that said, “I kiss every wave that throws me against the Rock of my Salvation.” Wow…that’s the test of our faith in the goodness of God: can we embrace pain and still trust that God has not forsaken us and that He is always good? Again, thank you for your comment and for letting me know that my blog has touched you. May this new year be one of breakthrough and inheritance for you and your family! Leaning into Him, Cecily p.s. I love that song by Casting Crowns as well!

      1. Thank You for that amazing quote! I have shared your blog with my sisters. and they also love it! My youngest sister is a worship leader in our church and your blog brought her to tears given that she can relate to every word you said. Continue to write, the Lord has blessed you with a gift. You are touching lives all over and you don’t even know it. xoxo
