...comfort one another with these words..
He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arms, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.
I love this verse...and I love this carving my mother gave me. I have it sitting on my fireplace mantle. It is a constant reminder of the above verse.
Our LORD is so caring, so long suffering and full of mercy. His ways as I've mentioned before are so perfect..that we cannot fathom it's work in entirety.
My dear sweet sister in Christ, passed on to the LORD early Saturday morning. She was only 51 years of age. Sobering as we think of each day we take for granted. Make the most of each day..for the LORD!!
She was diagnosed with a rare cancer just a month ago...and so quickly spread. I know that many will not understand why..but for me, I see God's mercy upon her. She has had a very grievous trial the past two years of her life and quite frankly..even the things I've endured..THIS...would be most difficult. I see God's mercy in relieving her of living this the rest of her life here on earth. I know that her family will miss her so terribly..but they have the comfort that this post speaks of...God's will and HIS comfort found in his promises, in his faithfulness and his WORD.
I thank the LORD so much for my King James Bible! What a TREASURE! the book of TRUTH right in my very hands! So many verses that testify of it's accuracy of it's strength in the believers life and the fruit it has and continues to have through the ages of time.
But, I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
I Thessalonians 4:13-14
Comfort one another with these words. I Thessalonians 4:18
THIS IS THE DAY... my sister in Christ is with the LORD, she loves.
Please pray for her family.
God bless you all with this same comfort.
