Usually when we get wrecked, the implication is that it’s a good thing. But what about when it’s the most horrible thing imaginable? Earlier this week, when I posted praying for your kids, Sandy responded:
“My daughter died February 7th from a drug overdose. I cannot tell you how devastated I am. I do not know how to make it.”
Sandy has been a regular commenter on my blog. She got a call at 7 a.m. from her daughter Sarah “telling me in a screaming voice she thinks Angela is dead in her bathroom.”
Angela was 25 years old. She got hooked on heroin less than a year ago. According to her mom, “She was a Christian. She was super creative, and funny and daring.”
I asked Sandy if we could pray about it. She said “Yes. The horror of this is more than I can bear. My Sarah is traumatized and needs lots of prayer more than even me. My heart is crushed and shattered. I feel weak and tired every day and have not been back to work since Feb 7th when she died.”
Have you ever lost a child or someone close in a traumatic way?
All we have is prayer to help us cope. Please pray for Sandy and her daughter Sarah.
