Grief

Then Peace

Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4 NLT

It has been a HARD few days. Wave upon wave. It didn’t feel like I was experiencing grace upon grace, but evil upon evil. I feel like I’m needing to do something no new widow should or even has done (and I’m reading so many books by and about widows and no one is doing anything like this.)  

From the first day in this journey I’ve found comfort in realizing others have been through similar situations and survived. But this latest task is just beyond. 

And God’s grace has risen above. 

For some unexplainable reason, i.e. prayer, I am filled with peace. Unexplainable, incomprehenable peace. 

A verse, a conversation with a dear friend,  and the prayers of many, and I can truly say, in the midst of this storm within a storm, the Zolfaghari family had a very special evening. 

I’ve never directly “felt prayers” of others, but since my husband was killed there have been a few distinct times that I’ve known someone was praying before anyone told me, because there was no other way to explain. 

Today, I know. God is answering with the miracle of peace, comfort, clarity, and a sense of my dear husband as he is now, alive in Christ. 

Thank you
