I used to call 2002 my year from hell. Two miscarriages, and the death of seven family members (one was my mom’s youngest sister) in ten months shook my world to the core. In the midst of all of the pain and devastation, I was continually haunted by a response Peter gave Jesus.
In John 6:67-69, Jesus asked if the 12 would leave him, as other disciples had. Peter replied, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We believe and know that you are the Holy One of God.”
Where indeed! No matter the hurt or pain, where else could I turn for any answers? After clinging to this for ten months in desperation over the feelings that kept showing their ugly heads, we, once again, found we were expecting. This time God blessed us with our second son, our angel Gabriele!
There is an incredible peace in knowing the only answer to hurt and anger lies in the gentle love of Jesus! God took what was a hellish experience and taught me that to cling to Him is the only answer I really need.
