A Time of Sadness; A Time of Hope

Do I need to suck it up and believe more or think I am not worthy of God’s blessings.

Well sometimes people will say, it is because she has little faith she is sick, if only she would believe strongly enough, this nightmare would pass. Like blackmail it turns people away from God. God becomes someone we cannot trust. We will never be good enough. God gives us the gift of love. Some will cite the verse in Romans 8:28 “God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God.” It is a verse that has sustained millions of people through difficulties through the ages.

My family and I lost someone pretty awesome this week, my sister. We find comfort in the knowledge that she has left this veil of tears to be united with Jesus. When we’ve suffered the loss of a loved one, we need to grieve it for what it is and yet take hope in heaven. In the same way, we need to be realistic about every other kind of loss or hurt.Image13

  1. I am sorry for the loss of your precious sister. Even Jesus wept at the death of his friend Lazarus. Sometimes no words can comfort of us and during those times I like to sit at the feet of the Lord. Be blessed.
