“I’ve never heard anyone say, ‘The really deep lessons of life have come in times of ease and comfort.’ But, I have heard many saints say, ‘Every significant advance I’ve ever made in grasping the depth of God’s love and growing deep with Him has come through suffering.’” ~ John Piper Suffering with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer, 48-year-old Jay Udodong clung to his deep faith in God trusting he would be ushered into heaven when he took his final breath. On his last day, longing to see his Lord and Savior, Jay whispered to Grace, his wife, “It’s time to celebrate Jesus.” Then he peacefully closed his eyes and passed on to eternity. Desperate and unable to share the peace her husband embraced till the end; Grace cried out to God, “Why would You take a loving husband and father from his family when he is still so young?” God replied with gentleness and love, “Grace, what you have experienced is one tiny piece of a thousand-piece life puzzle. It cannot make sense to you unless you are able to focus on the bigger picture.” The more He spoke to her heart, the more she understood. In this moving memoir, Grace Udodong shares her powerful story of love, loss and the unexpected path that led her to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. God’s whispers to Grace in the midst of her valley drew her to Him and taught her these truths: When we seek God in our pain, He is able to heal. When we seek God in our lack, He is able to provide. When we seek God in our confusion, He is able to direct. When we seek God in our emptiness, He is able to satisfy. Inspired by God through prayer and Bible reading, Grace came to intimately “KNOW” Him and the power of His presence as He walked her through the wilderness of bitterness and grief to a paradise of forgiveness, healing and peace. May you be encouraged by her story of hope. God truly IS enough.
