In the midst of life’s low points, we have a God who interrupts where we think things are going. He provides what we need and sometimes oh so much more.
Last week was odd. It marked three years since the most difficult week of my life—the week my husband died and the week of his funeral. Facebook has been oh-so helpful with its memory feature. It helpfully reminded me of the day I had to post the announcement of his death. All summer it’s been reminding me of things that I was doing in the days leading up to his heart attack.
One day FB did it again, this time reminding of my post the morning before I had to be braver than I’d ever been before. It was the day I had to walk my four children in to view their father’s casket.
But the memory FB brought up was the scripture verse I posted before I had to do this terrible, horrible, awful task. “And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm, and steadfast.” 1 Peter 5:10
