In the latest issue of Simple Grace, Grey's Anatomy star Sarah Drew opens up about the scary experience that led her closer to God:
In December of 2014, Sarah’s daughter, Hannah, was born almost a month early and had to spend 11 days in the NICU fighting to grow strong enough to go home with her parents and older brother, Micah, then 2 years old. “That was one of the most frightening and emotionally difficult times of my life,” Sarah shares.
“I was so numb, raw and terrified that I couldn’t do anything…I couldn’t even pray.” One night, Sarah found the strength to send an email to her family, friends and congregation asking for help—and Sarah says God responded in incredible ways through His army of earth angels.
“We received the most beautiful and loving notes, deliveries of food and offers to babysit or lend a hand with household routines,” Sarah smiles. “We also received the warmest, most loving hug from Jesus via the thoughtful people who came to visit to physically hug and pray with us. Or my best friend who prayed for me over the phone while I could do nothing more than sit and sob. Those comforting actions were God’s hands, arms and voice enveloping me.”
