Call on Jesus name! He rescues and saves the broken and lost.
Country music star Granger Smith is opening up about how his relationship with God helped him after the tragic death of his three-year-old son in a drowning accident.
The singer says he found hope after hitting “rock bottom” and is encouraging other believers to “surrender to God” in the midst of life’s darkest moments.
Smith and his wife, Amber Bartlett, struggled at first. “We went down a journey that I thought I could on my own with self-help and self-improvement and exercise and positivity and visualization, meditation and devotionals,” he explained. “I thought I could just mend it, fix it and move on, and I couldn’t.”
Smith says it was not until he “surrendered to God” that he found true hope, joy, and peace.
“God gave River to us for three years and that was his mission,” the musician said in 2019. “I don’t think God takes anyone too soon. I believe he was put on this earth for the exact amount of time… He lived a good 1,000 days. That’s a huge example for me and how we’re going to look at every single day.”
Smith wants to encourage other parents who have gone through similar tragedies and advises that they lean into God.
Fighting back darkness
But before his turn around, the devil tried to have Granger end his own life when he was at his low point.
The devil is here for ONE REASON friends!! To steal, kill and destroy. he makes me so mad! 😡 I have heard countless stories like this. Before someone murders or ends their own life they ALWAYS hear voices convincing them to do so. Always. The world will try and say it’s “mental illness” but the truth is, there are demons who don’t sleep that are at work and it’s a spiritual attack.
If you don’t have a relationship with Jesus, know your word 📖 and captivate your thoughts then you are a sitting target for the enemy. 🎯
I knew I had to post this short testimony to my youtube channel (watch below).
ARMOR OF GOD
Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.“ -Ephesians
Ps. Years ago God told me, “You will break the spirit of suicide off of people by the words that come out of your mouth, and you might not even know it.” 👀 let’s gooo devil. I got your number.
