The Beginning, Thank You K-Love


I remember the painful early days of my separation. The event knocked me to the ground where I landed in a soul crushing fetal position. My emotions changed, and in an instant, my calm and clear mind fell into a cloud of confusion and despair. I remember my ability to do the things I did every day now became impossible for me to do. I could no longer read a book; my mind was too bruised. I could no longer watch a TV show; I could only stare at the TV as episode after episode danced across my screen as I watched in an emotional stupor. I could no longer listen to the news for doing so would only enhance my new found fears.
The only thing that I could do was find something that gave me hope and direction. For me, that was a radio station I used to take for granted. K-Love. I listened to the station daily.  Sometimes I did not want to hear what the lyrics in the songs said to me about hope because in my mind, at that time, I had no hope.
I remember one song in particular that touched my soul and still does today. “Praise You In This Storm” by Casting Crowns. I mention this song in my book, “My Story My Divorce God’s Promise, The Beginning.” I talk about the day when there was a strong storm over my town, the day I went out and sat in the rain and wind and asked God to send a lightning bolt to take me to His peace. God did not take me home but instead lifted me up. Though the music and through His word he gave me strength and a newly found testimony.

I hope you are not in a devastating divorce situation. If you are, please find something to give you hope. It could be a devotional, your church, your faith, or it could be a radio station.
Thank you K-Love for your ministry. For giving me hope in my storm through the music and God’s word.
God Bless,

Hi, I am a mom, nana, and writer living in the beautiful state of NC. I was married for 37 years and then blindsided by my husband, a former pastor. After decades he filed for legal separation without a word to me. It has been a rough road coming to terms with this new life that has been chosen for me. My blog is a place where I share "The Beginning," this place I found myself, a place I did not want to be. "The Journey," the things we need to do as we traverse this new road. Lastly "The Joy," and yes there is still joy to be found even after great pain. I have finished my first book "My Story My Divorce God's Promise, The Beginning." I am in the process of writing The Journey and The Joy. Please join me on my adventure to a new life. Always remember God's Promise "I will never leave you or forsake you."
