Honoring God with our lives, a powerful verse, song, testimony

I've been having a hard time dealing with God, I'm angry because he took Margaret away. But we had seven great years and in her dying I see God working. It's unmistakable, so I have to yield to his will. I love you Margaret! This post is coming a few days after the memorial service, and contains a powerful verse and song for you that impacted my day tremendously so that I had to post it.

Song of Solomon chapter 8, verse 5-7...5"Who is this coming up from the wilderness Leaning on her beloved?" "Beneath the apple tree I awakened you; There your mother was in labor with you, There she was in labor and gave you birth. 6"Put me like a seal over your heart, Like a seal on your arm. For love is as strong as death, Jealousy is as severe as Sheol; Its flashes are flashes of fire, The very flame of the LORD. 7"Many waters cannot quench love, Nor will rivers overflow it; If a man were to give all the riches of his house for love, It would be utterly despised."… New American Standard Bible.

    Tim. There is a book written by David Stutzman, Hiking Through. It journals his thoughts as he worked through the loss of his wife. You may find it helpful. Peace and comfort, my brother in Christ. Diane Babcock
