‘In awe of God’s care’

“Thy Maker is thine husband” (Isaiah 54:5)—what in the world does that mean? My beloved husband of almost thirty years had just passed on, and somehow that Bible verse was supposed to be a comforting thought! But I didn’t want God; I wanted a hand to hold and my husband’s comforting presence. I was inconsolable. My world had just ended, and that statement meant nothing to me. 

I had read testimonies about people being healed of grief through Christian Science, but actually experiencing grief was another matter. People told me how well I was doing and how I had gone forward in my life, but little did they know the terrible pain I felt inside that would not go away. I asked God what I needed to do to be at peace.

My first step toward healing was simply to “let go”—to let go of all the turmoil in my thinking, all my fears of a future alone—and just pray to feel God’s love for me. Based on many experiences in my life where I had known God’s love, I knew He loved me and that I just needed to feel that love. And slowly, as I prayed and opened my heart to God, I began to feel loved.
