Guest: Joyce Rogers
After 54 years of marriage, Adrian Rogers, founder of "Love Worth Finding Ministries," died in 2005, leaving behind Joyce, his grieving widow. But she found great comfort in Isaiah 43:2 which says, "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you through the rivers, they shall not overflow you." The author of Grace for the Widow: A Journey Through the Fog of Loss, Joyce wrote her version of Psalm 23 as part of her healing process. In part, it says, "The Lord is my bridegroom, and my husband, I shall not lack love and companionship."
When Pastor Adrian Rogers died, he left behind Joyce, his bride of 54 years. As she grappled with grief, Psalm 63:3-4 helped her focus on God. "Because Your loving kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise You. Thus, I will bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name." Years later, on Valentine’s Day, Joyce, the author of Grace for the Widow: A Journey Through the Fog of Loss, invited 14 widows over for dinner to share special memories about their husbands. Healing flowed through their joyful tears.
