I pray that you will bear with me, as I share some of thoughts concerning my sister's homegoing to Heaven on February 13th. I tend to process grief and my faith thoughts through writing. In my family, as most of you know, I had a sister who valiently fought her cancer for over three years
If you are a child of God, however, you know that the Lord is with you and even carrying you through it all. He carries us through weakness, sickness, and brokenness. He carries us on His shoulders like a Daddy might carry a young child who is weak and weary. Your help comes from the Lord.
Sometimes when the trials are overwhelming and many, it is difficult to see that the Lord is with us and helping us. At those moments we must learn to not listen to our emotions which don't always tell us the truth. We need to listen instead to the truth of God's Word which promises that the Lord is always our help and will never forsake us. We don't always have to see it immediately to believe it, because it is true that God is with us. Our help comes from Him in His perfect timing!
If you have not already done so, listen to the song above, and be blessed and encouraged.
