God strengthens us by giving us "the power beyond what is normal" to make it through it through each passing day. Psalm 46:1 says: "God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress." Psalm 36:7; "How precious your loyal love is O God! In the shadow of your wings, the sons of men take refuge." Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (2 Corinthians 1:3,4; 1 Peter 5:7)
