"I Will Praise You in the Storm" The Story of Stephen and Holly Deaubé a Journey of Faith
Life brings its share of hurts, pains, and sorrows; there is no guarantee that we will ever escape them. As adults and parents, it is difficult to see our children suffering. However, there is nothing more overwhelming than when a child passes away and even more so when that child is our own. We expect to precede them in death; it is the natural cycle of life. When this cycle is broken, it disrupts our sense of fair play. "It's not fair," we cry out, sometimes shaking our fists at God. In desperation, we cry out to God for answers, and often our cries return seemingly unanswered. The despondent parents and loved ones without doubt, are asking the same perplexing question, "Why God?"
This question is almost as old as creation, and the answer lies ultimately with God himself. The purpose of this book is to help answer some of those painful questions and offer hope and encouragement. I do not claim to know all the answers, nor can I answer all the "whys," but I try to present a compelling story how God has answered some of these questions and others concerning my own experience in the loss of our two children.
The moment we are born, we begin the process of dying. In essence, we live only to die, the Christian dies only to live; it is a celebration of life not death, as John Oxenham eloquently penned, "For death begins with life's first breath, and life begins at the touch of death." Death is not our friend if we are an unbeliever it is our worst nightmare. However, to the believing Christian neither is death our enemy, it is our release from this temporal world to our eternal home in heaven. Our time here on earth is our preparation for heaven, and our job performance here will become our resume up there. It is important to remember that while earth may be our training ground, heaven is our home court!
