The March issue of Simple Grace features an exclusive interview with country music superstar Reba McEntire. Here, she opens up about the powerful role God played as she healed from the heartbreak of divorce:
Just over a year ago, Reba faced one of the most difficult times in her life when she and her husband and manager, Narvel Blackstock, were divorced after 26 years. “My faith is what got me through it, and still gets me through it,” she says. “When I’m hurting, I can talk to my mama, sisters or girlfriends, but to really bare it all, I know I can tell God everything because He already knows it! He’s the best therapist in the world and His unconditional love heals me like nothing I’ve ever experienced. My faith grows the more I tap into His love and the more rock-solid our bond becomes.”
In fact, Reba says there’s not a day in the past two years that she didn’t talk to the Lord. “We have a constant companionship that I totally adore,” Reba says of Jesus. “Today I feel very secure and a lot more confident than I was six months ago—and I’m definitely more confident than I was a year ago. Every day, there is growth and God creates this security in little increments. I’m very thankful for that.”
