Many dear friends have recently walked through losing a child, a parent and even both parents within months. Having experienced the loss of my parents (2009 & 2014) I know God prepared me to walk beside, intercede for and be present for them. It is sad at times and tears do fall, aches and groaning happen too, however having a deep trust in and love for our King Jesus Eternity in Heaven awaits for all who believe in and follow Him.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me…” John 14:6 (NIV)
We know where our hope comes from.
God, the one and only— I’ll wait as long as he says. Everything I hope for comes from him, so why not? He’s solid rock under my feet, breathing room for my soul, An impregnable castle: I’m set for life. Psalm 62:5-6 (MSG)
Rest in God alone, my soul, for my hope comes from Him. Psalm 62:5 (HCSB)
Truly it is an honor to walk beside each of you in any and every way God allows. I love my Lord and Savior. I love you too. I have seen in others His mighty healing hand and received His miracles. I will run the race set before me. I will run and not walk. I will not grow weary because I am filled with His strength.
..but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31 (NIV)
I will not be perfect but God will perfect ALL things. Anything loving, kind, gentle, faithful, honorable, merciful, beautiful you see in me is ALL Him. All the glory, honor and praise belongs to Him.
Friends and family – I love you! Mxo
