First of all, I can hardly believe Danny Gokey is no longer a contender to be the next American Idol. How-EVAH, it is certain that he will find success. And, I guarantee that he will bring glory to God. How do I know this?
Because, he has already endured a much greater loss – losing his wife to complications from a surgery four weeks before he auditioned for Idol last year.
Urged by his wife’s prodding, he not only went on to audition for Idol, but he also set up a foundation in his wife’s name which provides musical instruments to children. My friend, Cindy Beall, would call this “turning his loss into a contribution.”
Danny’s favorite quote? “Unshakable faith is faith that has been shaken.”
Some people become bitter. Others become better.
I think we know which one Danny will become.
How do you handle loss?
