Faith-Filled Friday with Brandi Linai
Most of us have experienced those times of hopelessness, where life
seemed lifeless, and we could care less. What do we do in those times?
Thanks for joining us for Faith-Filled Friday with Brandi Linai where she
shares one of those times as well as what turned it around from
hopeless to hope-full!
Hope in the verse…
2014- if there was one year I’d love to send hurling into the sea of forgetfulness it would be
That was the year I experienced the most excruciating, indescribable pain as I watched my
son go through one of the most difficult periods in his life…in OUR lives.
I had been a single mom for 18 years, and for 18 years my son dreamed of what it would be
like to have his dad in his life. Then it happened. In 2014.
The dream turned into a nightmare as it crashed into reality. This was not going to be a
fairytale story. The disappointment was crushing, and I watched my son spiral into a dark
hole of depression, anger, resentment, and self-loathing.
In the midst of trying to hold my son together, trying to hold on to my sanity, and trying to
keep life as we knew it from slipping away forever, God sent me a lifeline. It was one Bible
verse. Exodus 14:14, “The Lord your God will fight for you, you need only to be still.” That
was it. That’s all I needed to hear. My God was in control and all I had to do was trust HIM.
I watched as God put our lives back together in miraculous ways. HE restored hope, peace,
joy, and LAUGHTER! HE healed in ways only HE could. I am so thankful for the one verse
that got me through.
I would love for you to share your life-line verse.
