The Widow's Oil was birthed not too long after the 5 year anniversary of Jeri Hill's husband Steve's home going. Jeri had met many widows during those 5 years and realized there needed to be a community of widows in the Body of Christ encouraging, uplifting and counseling one another.
The first Tuesday out of every month, Jeri hosts a live video call completely free and open to all widows. She shares her personal experience of living life without her precious husband by her side, but how God has continued to be her covering and very best friend.
We pray this community helps bring healing and restoration to your heart as you realize you are not alone in this journey. Just as the widow in 2 Kings had just a little bit of oil left, the Lord multiplied it as she trusted and obeyed Him. We believe the Lord has an incredible plan for your life. And as Jeri often says, "When you live for Jesus, there truly is life after death."
The Pain of Loss.
Losing your spouse is hard. Really hard. It's excruciating and oftentimes takes your breath away.
The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18
Becoming a widow/widower is one of the hardest and most painful roles anyone could ever take on. You could be in a room filled with people, yet still feel completely isolated and alone. You see other couples and begin to remember all the times you had your spouse to hold your hand and make you feel desired.
Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. Psalm 25:16
I know right now it may seem too difficult to fathom, but you can and you will heal. No, the pain of loss never goes away. But the Lord has a beautiful way of healing our broken hearts and restoring joy back to us.
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. Psalm 147:3
Through intimacy with the Lord and community with the Body of Christ, we can learn to live life again. It will look different, but God has an exquisite way of restoring our souls and giving us genuine joy.
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you. Psalm 32:8
