Today I met with a woman named Nancy whose four month old daughter died. It happened several years ago, but the pain is still there. This woman inspires me so much because she’s using her pain to help others. She’s starting a non-profit organization to provide financial support to displaced parents with a critically ill child.
To help raise money, she’s compiling a book of stories to bring hope and encouragement. She’s looking for stories from parents who’ve lost a child, and who have experienced supernatural comfort that assures them their child is in Heaven.
If you have a story you’d like to share as a part of this project, please contact me and I will put you in touch with Nancy. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Genesis 50:20 (KJV), “But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.”
Difficult things happen life. I wish I could change that. There’s hope in knowing that one day, in Heaven, there will be no more sorrow or tears. God will wipe all the sadness away. Revelation 21:4.
We will all experience heartbreak, heartache, grief, sadness and disappointment. It’s not easy. It’s painful. But it’s not the end. The question is, what will we do with it? We can use our pain to bring good into the world.
