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 used to be self conscience. That has changed slowly. I now ask others for help as well and accept help as well. I am also now more intentional about letting others know how I feel about them. I learned that from my husband. When I retired in February it took me some time to decide what I wanted to do. Now I volunteer for several things. I especially enjoy planting and pulling weeds from vegetables at the food bank. It is alot of fun and you meet people while you work! Currently I am enrolled in Jan Wilkin's bible study studied "God of Deliverance: A Study of Exodus1:18".
God is Enough
God has mended this broken vessel piece by piece. It has been a painful, long journey. He has turned my mourning into dancing! Only God could have accomplished this. The scars that remain serve to remind me of what God has done and how faithful He has been. He has lifted me out of a cavernous pit onto solid ground. Only a loving God would invest that much time on mending me mentally, physically, and spiritually. He loved me to death (the death of His only Son, Jesus). I can trust Him with the rest of my life and for the rest of my life. He will continue His work in me.
