My husband was killed just after I graduated from UC Berkeley, and on my way to law school. Suddenly, I became a widow and a single mother of a young son. Prior to his tragic death, I asked my husband to attend church with me and our son, something we had not been doing. He agreed and during the prayers, he dropped to his knees and gently pulled me and my son down on our knees. I was stunned as my macho man wept with tears streaming down his cheeks.

Within a few days he was gone! I continued my path to learn about God and received Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. This is much harder than I am making it sound. But instead of going to law school as I had planned, God put me in mental health and social work and later, in pastoral ministry.

Trust God with your life and the lives of your loved ones. Give your life to the Lord Jesus Christ and no matter what happens or doesn’t happen, your life will have purpose beyond anything you could ask or think.
