"God is Enough" Those are the words of Mary Beth Chapman last night to families in Newtown, Connecticut at the "Night of Hope and Healing" concert to encourage families there in the wake of the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary.
If anyone knows what they're going through it's Mary Beth. She is married to an artist you hear a lot on K-LOVE, Steven Curtis Chapman. Five years ago they lost their daughter in a tragic accident, and last night they shared straight from their hearts.
Mary Beth encouraged the families in the midst of their grief that "I can offer no answers other than God is enough."
The bible says God is close to the broken hearted. It's a good reminder that even when times are tough, even when you are sad, that it doesn't mean that God is not with you or loving you, in fact it means He is closer.
She also encouraged those that have lost loved ones by describing her own honest feelings about her daughter. She said, "We're going to see her again, l wish it was now."
That's the promise we have. Those who belief in Jesus receive eternal life and we will be reunited in Heaven.
Here is a song from Steven Curtis Chapman that he performed last night. It's about what that reunion might look like.
