The Great Comfort
Greetings my dear readers!
We have received two and half inches of rain the past 3 days. Everything that was brown and decaying is now green and growing . As I observe this wondrous transformation hope is again reawakened within me. When we see loss, death of any living thing we can continue to have hope that new Life is rising again within our lives.
In my daily bible reading and digesting my spiritual food from Father GOD, I receive my help for whatever situation I may face today or the days ahead. I encourage you to daily hope for GOD’s best, and stand on HiS promises. The death of a loved one is an area where my heart must learn to stand on God’s promises, and my emotions, thoughts and my will may come into line with HIS promises.
In reading I Thessalonians 4:13-18, in verse 18 it says , Therefore comfort one another with these words. The words of Hope of a final destination, this HOPE anchors my soul in faith in a merciful and good FATHER.
What is this Hope? Jesus died and was buried , but HE ROSE AGAIN! This is our Hope, our anchor during any loss of a loved one. When JESUS returns again for HIS Church, HIS Bride, those who have died will rise again and be caught up in the air with those who are still alive. WE need to comfort one another with this promise, does it hurt, yes, will we have days when our emotions rule , yes, but in this great comfort GOD promises to send HIS SON JESUS back for all who are asleep and away from us temporarily, and the we who are still alive when HE returns. What a great great promise, JESUS is coming back for all who have accepted HIM as LORD and Savior!
Let us comfort one another and share this great promise with all who have temporarily suffered the loss of a loved family .
I have suffered the loss of beloved Grandmothers: Mary Koelling, Elizabeth Smith, Jennie Hall; Grandfather: James Hall; two babies, I will meet them in the air with JESUS when He returns again! I thank Father GOD for this great comfort in my life! I pray for you to receive this Hope this promise and this comfort!
