I recently loss my wife of close to twenty three years. We had three children, the oldest just processing to go for the manadatory one year National Youth Service Corp. Our second child has just gone back to school where he’s starting his second year in the Medical school, while the last born is in senior secondary school. There are three other relatives staying with us; one graduated from the College of Education, the other one just completed senior secondary school and is awaiting admission into the University while the last one is also in senior secondary school. My prayer is for the Lord to continue to comfort all of us as it has not been easy; In the few weeks immediately after my wife’s death, i developed poor appetite with people telling me i’ve loss weight, i don’t have enough sleep. But thanks to the Lord, He has been faithful and His comfort has kept us going. I pray also for God’s wisdom in bringing the children to fear Him and put all their trust in Him. My consolation had always been in God’s word which i have developed a habit never before in reading and asking for His direction. I’m consoled by the Lord’s word in 1 Thess 4: 13 – 17 and John 11:25, believe we’ll meet one day with my wife (Rev 21:4b). I believe in God word in Rom 8:28 that it’s well with all of us. May the Lord give us the grace to serve Him faithfully for the rest of our lives in Jesus name.
