I cannot even begin to express how deeply this song [I Still Miss You] touched my heart. I lost my husband, Layne, to a brain tumor two years ago. Aside from my salvation, Layne was the God’s greatest gift to me. He was my support, my confidant, my encourager, my best friend and the love of my life. We were married for a little over 20 years and every day was a gift. I have told people often that I would rather have had Layne for 20 years than anyone else for a lifetime.
Even though he went Home to heaven a little over two years I still miss him every day. I feel like half of who I was. The grief and loss are indescribable. But the blessing of such intense grief is the discovery of the amazing depth of God’s grace. He pours it every day, every minute into my life.
You are right. This grief is human and natural. Most people cannot understand this deep grief. But the darkness of my sorrow only makes the hope of heaven shine so much brighter in my heart. My Savior and the person I love most in this world are waiting for me there. I think of heaven with such hope and joy. I think of heaven all the time now. What an amazing future awaits us. We still have forever!!!
I love the vocal style, music style and powerful gospel message in Dustin’s songs. Thanks for allowing God to use you to stir my heart!
Each song applies Biblical principles to help me in my every day life.
