"For God alone my soul waits in silence;
from him comes my salvation.
"Almost 7 years ago, I was with a man I believed I would marry. He was a strong man of God and an inspiration to me everyday. One day I received a phone call saying he had taken his own life - my whole world crumbled. My faith was shaken to its very core. I have never experienced darkness, doubt, fear or heartache like it. It took every ounce of strength I had to cling to the Lord, but He pulled me through. I believed the plan for my life had been snatched away by the enemy, but God showed me He has a plan no matter what. He sustained me as I grieved, He held me when I cried, I felt Him so close to me in the weeks following that event. I am now married to a wonderful man and have a beautiful son and I am thankful every single day to my spectacular Lord for showing me He is always in control no matter what." - S. W.

"There's a place where fear has to face the God you know"
"My fear had always been being alone. I went right from my parents' house to be married. My husband and I married young, grew up together, struggled through owning a business, overcame, and had 3 remarkable kids. I always thought that one day something was going to happen to one of our kids, but we would be okay because we would get each other through it. Then, the unthinkable . . .my husband was diagnosed with esophageal cancer at the age of 42, we were married 20 years. We fought the cancer together, I never left his side, and when we questioned why in the very beginning, God clearly placed our sights on fighting well, trusting Him, and sharing our story. We came to the conclusion that if just one person saw Jesus through us and was saved, the sacrifice was worth it, all the while knowing that we may not get to know these results. Sadly, after bravely fighting for 9 months and 10 days, my husband of 21 years and 7 months, at age 43, lost his battle . . . I have been a widow for 1 year and 3 months and you know what? I am not alone. God has walked beside me each step of the way, He blessed us with 3 great kids, and an absolutely remarkable church family. My fear faced my God and did not win." - V. C.
