Daily Grace

Apr 9, 2019

She unexpectedly lost a child in a tragic accident, unexpectedly lost her husband due to an unknown heart condition, yet those who know Maritza will describe her as joyful. Her story is a powerful testimony of our great God who makes beauty from ashes (Isa. 61:3). Maritza is a sweet sister in Christ and active member of Sojourn Community Church – Woodstock alongside Joanna. She is a widow and joyful mama of five adult children (plus one in heaven). She is a busy bee working as a defect and production manager at AT&T, a Chaplain for Marketplace Chaplains, and an employee at a yarn shop (where she also teaches others how to knit). May her story remind us that our God is completely sovereign and completely good.  May her story encourage us by pointing to the unchanging nature of our God. We are grateful for her vulnerability and willingness to share her story, and in response, may we worship our God for who He is.
