When she was just 23-years-old, married for less than four years, with two little girls, Cara’s husband, Derek, died in a tragic accident. I can’t imagine such a scenario. She admitted that it wasn’t easy, but her faith brought her through.
I asked Cara about her worship life. She responded, “Before Derek passed away I really didn’t view worship properly.” She told me that afterward she could picture Derek before the throne of God in heaven, worshiping. That image had a profound effect on her own worship life. “Worship has taken on an entirely different dimension.”
“Yesterday at church we sang the song, ‘Hallelujah, What a Savior.’ And I couldn’t even sing because I was so caught up in the awesomeness and purity and sovereignty of God. I just stood there and wept as I thought, ‘Hallelujah! What a Savior!’ Each day I look forward to taking the time to just focus on the Lord and worship Him.”
Indeed, what a Savior! Even in the midst of tragedy, even as we grieve a loss or pain, we can still worship that great Savior. He is still worthy.
