We are so inspired by her strength!
As we reported, Craig Strickland was declared missing after his boat capsized in Oklahoma while he was going on a hunting trip with his friend Chase Marland.
While the Backroad Anthem singer’s dog was found alive on Tuesday, Marland was found deceased the day before.
On Wednesday, the country star’s wife — Helen Strickland — took to Twitter to announce there were no new developments regarding her husband’s whereabouts.
She wrote :
The search has wrapped up for the night. No major updates, but we’re hopeful for tomorrow. Thanks for your continued prayers.

That same day, she posted a photo on Instagram of a Bible, where she tells a heartwarming story of how her friend was able to find strength through faith.
While we hurt and experience the worst pain of our lives, we sometimes believe that God might not be there with us listening when we cry out to Him. But then, when we least expect it, He speaks and comforts us in such beautiful ways. Today we received a message with one of those beautiful blessings…Due to Craig’s disappearance, a family friend found herself unable to sleep. She got up and started cleaning out a closet and found a Bible with Craig Strickland’s name inside. She spent the next 45 minutes searching scripture that Craig has highlighted. She then shared with us a few of the versus that stood out to Craig. These bible verses, which spoke to Craig, reminds us of God’s intentions for our lives. No matter the outcome of this circumstance, the truth of God’s word can comfort and give strength to each of us. He loves you and I, and desires good for our lives. Therefore, every difficult situation CAN be used for good. I am so thankful God allowed the holy spirit to lead our friend to Craig’s Bible. I pray that the truth of His words would wash over each of you as it did for Craig and his family. Thank you Craig Michael for sharing with us the wisdom that the Lord shared with you. And thank you Lord for giving us the opportunity to share Your truth through Craig’s legacy.A photo posted by Helen Wisner Strickland (@helenelizabethstrickland) on Dec 30, 2015 at 8:12pm PST
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Craig and Chase’s families during this difficult time.
