More than I knew…

If the statement is true that those who grieve much, loved much…then I must have loved Trey more than I even knew was possible.

When I look back at pictures from this last year, even though he struggled so much, he brought me tremendous joy. I didn’t even realize the extent of such joy until he was gone. There is such a hole in my heart…a hole that will remain until I see him again. It’s like trying to live, when a large part of you has died. It’s such a strange feeling. The good news is that this won’t last forever…because I WILL SEE HIM AGAIN! I’m so grateful to the Lord for that. The overcoming work of Jesus Christ has never meant more.

One thing for sure though…life doesn’t stop, and we have to keep rolling with it or get rolled over by it. Even the simple things are hard right now, but Emily and I are both trying to do “the next right thing.” I’m so grateful my church has given me some time off to rest. Emily and I also have not realized how tired we are. This last year took a toll on us too.

So…as I approach another day, I’m just praying for the grace to get through it. I’m not thinking about tomorrow or next week…just right now, just today…and I pray God gives us what we need to endure. As the Scripture says, “His grace is sufficient and His power is made perfect in our weakness.” I’m very grateful for that truth.

Thanks for praying for us. We will get through this…we will be okay…God will continue to get glory…and we will continue to see Trey’s impact, both on our family and the world around us. We love each of you.

    Thank you God that You will see Jeremy and his family through this heart wrenching time. Thank you for Your promises that are renewed everyday. Thank you for Your faithfulness and Your words of truth that comforts us and gives us hope. Thank you that your word never returns void. Our hope and life and being is in You. We always remember you in our prayers. We knew your family from Kingsville, TX (1980-81). Our son Bruin and you were best buddies (y’all were 3 or 4 yrs old). I’ve been keeping up with Trey since last fall from your dads news letters and was so sorry to hear of your loss. You have a precious family Jeremy and we will continue to keep y’all in our prayers.
