After the tragic and unexpected death of my son, my husband had recommended Stephen’s Ministry. Honestly, I reluctantly agreed, if only to give my husband a break, as he was growing weary. He was and still is my love warrior. It is vital to explain that this kind of grief is too much for one person to handle. My soul was shattered to its very core. It was as if someone had dropped a grenade on my soul, which caused me to question everything I ever thought I believed in- including God! What Mary did for me through God, no-one else could have done! I can only surmise that this is a component of God’s Angel army. When I felt alone and alienated by my grief, she was there! When the enemy attacked me, she was there standing with me, in the fire, loving me like Jesus! She accepted me, and loved me during my brokenness, never trying to fix me. She listened, encouraged, and shared with me what helped her. We cried a lot! I felt like she was my very own personal angel! Words cannot convey the gratitude I feel in my heart for the time we shared, the prayers and love, comfort, and care I was blessed enough to receive during this ministry. What a shining example of Christ’s love for us!
