I held a woman today as she sobbed for her daughter who recently passed away. I have not drank from that cup so I can’t imagine the debilitating pain of losing a child. There is nothing, even with my very best intentions, I could do to ease the terrible ache in her soul. I did experience something extraordinary in the midst of her pain. I saw real faith. Not the “God is good because life I going my way” faith but faith in the arena of despair.
This woman, in her profound agony, said “I trust in you, Lord”. She is battered and beaten, breathlessly crawling her way to the throne to the feet of our Savior and she says in between sobs, “I trust you, Lord”.
Faith that doesn’t doubt God’s goodness but trusts that He is Sovereign. Faith that says “I’m not OK”, but I will be. Faith that says “Your will, not mine”.
I know grace is given in accordance to what we are going through but I am not sure if my faith is that unshakeable.
What I do know, is that today, in the brokenhearted face of a mother, I saw faith and hope and trust and Jesus.
Through all the pain and heartache, the victory is still ours!
