Where do you go when life as you know it is turned completely upside down? It happened to me. The life I knew and loved vanished on August 7, 2013 when my college sweetheart and husband of 33 years chose to end his life. There are not words to describe my shock and devastation. Though I was surrounded with wonderful, loving people, none of them could restore the half of me that died that day. This was a God-sized task! This is my journey through shock, grief, mourning and healing. It is the very personal and profound journey I took to ultimately discover that no matter how deep your pain…God is always there and He is enough. If you are grieving, God Is Enough will give you hope. I understand what you are going through, and I am here to share my message of hope, healing and faith.
M.E. Louis is a native of North Carolina. She grew up in Chapel Hill where she attended the University of North Carolina and met the love of her life, Tate, who became a pastor. After 33 years of marriage, Tate took his life on August 7, 2013. God is Enough is her story of hope, healing and faith.
I asked God, "To never let me forget what this journey is like." Because as time moves on, I did not want to become insensitive to those who have lost a spouse. God answered my prayer. August 7th will be seven years that Bob has been gone. The pain is not as severe and I have adjusted to living alone, but the loss is still palpable. I pray every Thursday for widows and widowers. If you would like prayers for yourself or someone else, I would be honored to pray. You will find my email address on page 73, firstname.lastname@example.org.

God is Enough
Father, I cannot fathom what this journey would be like without You. The journey has been treacherous, steep, lonely, emotionally draining, unfamiliar, scary and intimidating. But what I have learned on it is priceless. I have deepened my relationship with You as well as with others. I also have learned many things about myself. Thank You that now I am able to rejoin life hand in hand with You. May I never forget what I have learned on this arduous journey!
