Confidence 30 Day Challenge – Women’s Ministries Retreat Day 13

 

Day 13:

 

My friend Susan’s husband Tony died at age 48. They had been married for 20 years and she says, “He was the love of my life”. But at his memorial service, I saw Susan stand in courage over and over, facing the waves of grief as she faced the reality of living life without her beloved Tony and raising two sons alone.

The first glimpse of the courage she was gaining from leaning on God came as a teenage girl shared how Susan’s husband Tony had changed her life and given her back her confidence. As the teen shared, she broke down sobbing, and it was Susan who rose to her feet, wrapped her arms around this precious girl, stroked her hair, patted her shoulders and comforted her until the teen’s confidence returned.

Confidence often comes when we just do what seems natural, appropriate, and right—by instinct. Love will lead you.

I love you, LORD, my strength. (Psalm 18:1)


Día 13
 

El esposo de mi amiga Susan, Tony murió a la edad de 48 años. Habían estado casados por 20 años y ella decía, “el era el amor de mi vida”. Pero en el servicio memorial yo vi a Susan parada con valor enfrentando una y otra vez las olas de tristeza mientras enfrentaba la realidad de vivir sin su amado Tony y criando dos hijos sola.

El primer vestigio de valor que ella exhibía descansando en Dios vino cuando una
teenager” compartió como su esposo Tony cambio su vida y como le devolvió su confianza. Mientras la joven compartía, rompió en sollozos, y fue Susan quien se levanto y abrazo a la bella muchacha, arreglo su pelo, toco sus hombros, la abrazo y la consoló hasta que la joven recobro su confianza.

Confianza a menudo viene cuando sencillamente hacemos lo que parece natural, apropiado, y justo –por instinto-. El amor lo guiara. 

Cuanto te amo oh Señor, fortaleza mía. (Salmo 18:1 NVI)
