Heidi Cruz Recalls Finding God’s Purpose for Ted During a Dark Time, and How It Kept Her Going

It’s always amazing how God can use the dark times in our life to reveal His plans for us in ways that sustain and motivate us for years to come.

Ted Cruz is one of the most polarizing figures in Washington DC. A beacon of conservatism and sold biblical values for many, he’s often portrayed as one of the evilest of Republicans by the left.

Always close by his side is his loving and supportive wife Heidi, who, during Cruz’s 2016 Presidential run, was scrutinized almost as closely as her husband was for her high-powered financial career.

Far from the pregnant-and-barefoot demure traditional wife most people imagine such a conservative political as Cruz might have, Heidi is the Harvard-educated breadwinner for the Cruz family, something that she hasn’t always managed to fuse together seamlessly with her husband’s political career.

In Ted’s early days in politics, Heidi recently shared in an interview with The Atlantic, there was a time when his recent appointment to as the Texas Solicitor General left the newly married couple in separate cities.

At the time Heidi was working for the National Security Council, so she remained in Washington DC as he settled in Houston.

Two years later, however, she agreed to move back to Texas to be closer to Ted and take a financial position there with Merrill Lynch, a career transition that Heidi ended up finding very challenging.

After a significant emotional struggle, she finally ended up signing up for a Catholic retreat so she could cope with her depression and grief over giving up a job she’d loved.

It was then that she met a counselor who gave her a message that would encourage her many years later when she and Ted had the spotlight of the nation on them.

The counselor, an 80-year-old Haitian woman, Heidi explained, “sat me down and she looked at me and she goes, ‘I can tell you have an amazing husband. And you both will have an impact on this country.’ She said, ‘God is going to use you, not Ted — not just Ted. You’re part of this team for a reason. God’s gonna use you to do something beyond yourself. You just let God take you to Texas, you let him take you wherever. Because there’s something bigger than you now.’”

Working with this counselor helped Heidi to keep going and to settle into her new life and her new path.

Years later, when she and Ted were on their way to announce his 2016 bid for the presidency, she was journaling her calories when she came across notes from these counseling sessions.

Realizing she’d gone from mourning her own difficult career change to being on her way to launch her husband’s presidential run, Heidi says, I just started crying.”

It’s always amazing how God can use the dark times in our life to reveal His plans for us in ways that sustain and motivate us for years to come.

Catholic Priest Says A Prayer For ‘Unborn Child In The Womb’ During The DNC

Published

on

A Catholic priest who was called upon to deliver a prayer during the Democratic National Convention no doubt made quite a few folks very, very angry by praying for and making a plea on behalf of unborn children at the end of the event. Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit who has caused quite a stir in the Catholic Church for his writings about gay and transgender issues, prayed that folks who were watching the event would open their hearts to “those most in need,” which included “the unborn child in the womb.” Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “Help to be a nation where every life is sacred, all people are loved, and all are welcome,” he said. Martin confirmed to the Washington Examiner earlier in the week that his prayer would contain explicit references to the unborn. Although a hot-button issue for much of the Democratic primary, abortion did not play a major role in the Democratic convention. Aside from Martin’s prayer, the issue received only minimal attention, with some speakers mentioning it in their speeches. Republicans, by contrast, are gearing up to make a major issue of abortion at the Republican National Convention next week. In addition to several anti-abortion speakers, the Republican National Committee invited Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, to deliver the convention’s opening prayer. Dolan has previously done so at both the Republican and Democratic conventions, during which he prayed for the protection of the unborn. At the end of the day, abortion is one of the most critical issues to face our culture in modern history. The reason, of course, is because fundamentally, at the core of the issue, is the defense of the most basic right we all have. The God-given right to exist, to live. If we cannot…

President Trump Says He’d ‘Go In And Do A Number On Middle East Countries Persecuting Christians’

Published

on

President Trump recently said that he would “do a number” on countries located in the Middle East that are persecuting Christians if he could find solid proof and evidence that sort of thing was happening. Christians in that part of the world are heavily persecuted, mostly by radical Muslim government regimes and terrorist groups, for daring to stand up boldly for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “If you look at the way Christians have been treated in some countries, it’s beyond disgraceful,” Trump said Thursday during a news conference at the White House. “If I had information and if I had absolute proof — some of the stories that we’ve heard, which are not easy, which is not easy to get — I would go in and do a number to those countries like you wouldn’t believe. He added, “What they do to Christians in the Middle East — it’s disgraceful.” Trump made the comment while discussing the nascent “Abraham Accord” treaty to normalize relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. This is not only going to be a big help to Christians in that area of the world, but it will also help Israel as well. For many, many years, the Jewish Nation has been surrounded by countries who do not recognize it’s legitimate right to exist. Striking this deal is a first step in changing that way of thinking in that part of the world. It’s something a lot of folks probably never dreamed possible before. Christians are told in the Bible to expect persecutions and to rejoice in suffering for the cause of Christ. However, that doesn’t mean we should allow persecution to continue on as if it’s a good thing. It’s not. If we have an opportunity…
