Hello! I am Cynthia Dusabe Nyukuri. I am married to Alliance, the most beautiful and intelligent man someone can see on this planet earth. We have two daughters. As I am writing these words, one of them is babbling by my side, but the other is now somewhere I can’t reach her, until I die.
You probably understand that my precious Mercy left us in this life. And you probably know how painful it is. I don’t know if you have ever lost a kid, but I can tell you that pain is tough. I had a baby stroller for twins. Since Mercy left, I never used it again.
This month, it will be one year that I lost my baby. But as my husband and I were remembering all the events around her departure, we just realized that today, we are full of gratitude to God. We went from mourning and questioning God in anger and rage, to praise Him for His faithfulness in our lives.
How did it happen? The Word of God. With the sadness that was overwhelming, we just plunged ourselves in God’s word. And we went deeper and deeper in it. And it is one year later, that we realized how much it has transformed us.
So, my word for you today is to get yourself deep in God’s word. Read it, study it, memorize it and give thanks for all situations you’re going through right now. They are God’s tool to transform you in His perfect image. And one day, you will praise Him, because you will understand that He was making a way for you. Mercy never came back; but I know now that God knew best. Today, He uses me in a special comfort and care ministry for people who are suffering. Isn’t it wonderful?
My Bible portion for you is this: “giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus-Christ”.
