This book is about a journeya journey through the fog experienced by the widow. Having experienced this journey, I want to share with other widows the assurance that this fog will lift and that the piercing ache in the heart will diminish.
I want to point other widows to their greatest source of comfort and strengththe living and written Word of God. I want to share some timeless truths that have guided me through this darkest night of my soul. I want to point them to some of the names of God that will strengthen their faith and help them to pray in faith, beginning with Jehovah SaboathGods special name for widows, which means the LORD of Hosts, Who will fight my battles for me. (Isaiah 54:5)
Life is so mundane and daily, so I want to also give some practical pointers for dealing with the daily round of life as the widow journeys through the fog. I want to share about help for financial, friendship and health needs.
I have been there. Ive cried out to God, Help me, help me. And He did. Ive asked the question, Who am I now that he is gone? I want to share with others the help that Jesus can be today and the hope He will give for tomorrowthat He is sufficient for all their needs, if they only trust Him.
Ive been to the grave and I know he isnt there. I want to share how others can learn to live by faith in a real worlda world in which things dont always turn out the way we wish.
Yes, I want to introduce them to the One, Who was my Guide through the fog of lossthe LORD Jesus Christ. I want to assure them that if they hold on to His hand, He will guide them through the fog.
This group of women are so needy! I have found this help and hope in Jesus Christ. I want them to know this too.
In Jesus wonderful name,
Joyce (Mrs. Adrian) Rogers
