This is a remarkable story. Erik Fitzgerald was a youth pastor in Georgia when he awoke one day to the terrible news that his wife and son had been killed in a car accident. The video above is the story of what happened after he met the man driving the other car.
In trying to describe how he sorted through the grief of those days, Erik says this:
“We have a tendency to look at our lives as little 3×5 snapshots. And we tend to get focused on whether our 3×5 is okay or not. We lose sight of the fact that God is doing bigger things. His story is bigger than just ours. He paints on a canvas the size of the universe.”
You really should take time to watch the rest of this above. I promise. You will be glad that you did.
