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 was tormented and wrestled with unanswered questions like this for several weeks. How could I reconcile my husband's suicide with the fact that God's Son, Jesus, loved my husband enough to die for him? My husband had accepted Jesus as his Savior, and had lived his life desiring to serve Him. My husband closed his eyes on earth and opened them in Heaven!!!
"God loved the world so much that He gave His only Son, that everyone who has faith in Him may not die, but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to be its Judge, but to be its Savior."(John 3:16-17)
God is Enough
“Why did this happen?” I recall saying, “God, You could have stopped this! Why didn’t You?”
