The Mary Mac Show | Spiritual Challenges

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 79, we discuss how our faith is challenged after the death of a loved one and how we might reconnect and rebuild our relationship with God.

Many of us go through a difficult time regarding our faith after someone very special in our life dies.

It is nothing to be ashamed of. Most of us are challenged this way.

Some have the courage to discuss it aloud. Others keep it inside, harboring deep resentment and pain.

We wonder why God may have left us. Why He may have not heard our prayers when our loved one was dying.

And especially wonder why a loved one could have been taken in a sudden way.

Unfortunately there are no answers to our questions and this makes us wonder what to believe.

Listen in to Episode 79 to hear my life lessons from the deaths I endured and how I settled things for myself regarding my faith in God.

Bless you, my friend. My warrior!


All Souls Day

Catholics around the world commemorate All Souls Day today, November 2nd. When I was a child I would attend service with my class. Later I would attend a lovely ceremony at one of the cemeteries where my loved ones were buried, under a beautiful white tent.

It seems to me today is a special day. A day to reflect not only on the lives who have left this world before us, but what you personally have endured since their deaths.

Good days, bad days, and sheer ugly days. Reaccessing where you’re heading without them. Recovering, if ever so slowly.

Sometimes you have that pity party and blame God for everything. This is natural and normal. I have yet to meet even the most devote person who hasn’t confided in me that they have bargained with Him for their loved one to somehow return, or being fiercely angry at the circumstances of their death or just simply because they aren’t here with them.

Remember, God is almighty. That means he can take you being livid with Him, regardless of what part you believe He played in your loved one’s death.

So on this day let us honor all the Souls who have gone before us and believe, one day, we’ll meet them again.
