I was just telling my husband on a date night, that I’m in awe of what we get to do. I say it all the time, and I’ll always say it, that I can’t believe we get to live this life and do the things God has called us to and asked us to be a part of.
Of course as a whole, our story is beautiful, because God is at work and is doing what He does best: taking broken vessels and using them powerfully. But each part doesn’t feel beautiful. There are dark, painful moments that are intertwined with the bright and wonderful ones, and God in His wisdom and power and strength is doing what only He can do to make them all blend together, for His glory.
With everything God has already done in our lives, and with all of the things we anticipate Him doing, I am so thankful that my husband poured his soul into the writing of his book, Through the Eyes of a Lion. He conveys our story, his struggle, God’s power, and perspective and plan in our pain. And it is a powerful book that I believe will help countless people who are experiencing grief and pain in the many different ways it shows up in our lives.
I believe God will change the way people see their trials and view their pain. And He will greatly change people’s vision to see that God has a purpose for the pain, and that Heaven is near, and we have a certain amount of time to walk in His calling for our lives.
Thank you to everyone on our Street Team who has written such beautiful notes and posted about the book. What a life we get to live, right?! Love you all!
