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.
To this day I strive to live one step at a time, one day at a time. This approach allows me to trust God daily, no matter what. God is in control. Early in the pandemic I headed to the grocery store. I found everything with the exception of toilet paper. I asked Shawn who was stocking the dairy aisle, "Is there any toilet paper in the stockroom? He quickly answered no. We struck up a conversation about the coronavirus. I told him that God is in control. He answered that a lot of people don't believe in God but I'm not one of them. In the middle of Food Lion we begin sharing very personal stories. I began to describe my husband's suicide. He began to describe about his older brother jumped off a bridge. God gave the opportunity to talk openly about it. It touched me how compassionate and amazingly personal God is. Amen.
God is Enough
