Prayer warriors, I would love it if you would join me in lifting in prayer a very special friend who is saying "until we meet again" to her daddy today...
Please join me in asking our Father in heaven to provide comfort and care for her and siblings today and that he bring her home safely as she has had to travel a distance to be there, also Father we ask that you give her a special blessing so that she can see her sweet grand babys on the trip home. Father we ask you for mercy, grace, favor and abundant blessings for this sweet lady, in the name of Jesus Christ our savior. Amen
2 Corinthians 1:3-5
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows.
When I am sad and missing someone who has made their heavenly journey home, when I am lost and feeling alone, I turn to this poem, I let my mind wonder and allow the words to come from the mouth of the one I am missing, I know that time is the only thing that heals us, I know that many people try to place an amount on that time, we heal at our own pace, we heal with God's grace, however long it takes. I know that the ultimate blessing is living in our heavenly father's house, I know that when our spirit leaves our bodies and transition into heaven that there is no more pain and suffering, no more worry and stress, that are bodies are made new and whole again, I think sometimes I allow my pain to overshadow my knowledge. May you read this today, allow yourself to imagine the one you love and miss, saying these very words to you, may it bring comfort into your heart, may it allow you to begin to move forward in your earthly doings and may it give peace and calm where there has been angst and woe! Love in Christ on this beautiful day.
TO MY DEAREST FAMILY
There are some things I'd like to say, but first I want to tell you that I arrived okay!
I'm writing this from Heaven where I dwell with God above. Where there are no more tears or sadness, there is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy, just because I am out of site, remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night! That day I had to leave you, when my life on earth was through, God picked me up and hugged me and said "I welcome you"
"Its good to have you back again, you were missed while you were gone, as for your dearest family, they'll be here later on."
"I need you here so badly, as part of my big plan, there's so much that we have to do to help out mortal man!"
Then God gave me a list of things he wished for me to do, and foremost on that list of mine is to watch and care for you.
And I will be beside you, every day and week and year, and when you're sad I'm standing there, to wipe away your tears.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight, God and I are closest to you in the middle of the night. When you think of my life on earth and all those loving years, because you're only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cray, it does remove the pain, remember there would be no flowers unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned, but if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand, but one thing is for certain thought my life on earth is o'er, I am closer to you now than I ever was before.
And to my very many friends, trust God knows what is best, I'm still not far away from you I'm just beyond the crest.
There are rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb but together we can do it, taking one day at a time. It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too, that as you give unto the world so the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow or in pain, then you can say to God at night my day was not in vain!
And now I am contented that my life it was worthwhile. Knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is down and feeling low, Just lend a hand to pick them up as on your way you go.
When you are walking down the street and you've got me on your mind, I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when you feel that gentle breeze or the wind upon your face, that's me giving you a great big hug or just a soft embrace.
And when it's time for you to go from that body to be free, remember you're not going your are coming here to me!
And I will always love you from the land way up above, we'll be in touch again soon.
P.S. God sends his LOVE!!!
