I sent a message to a friend today. This friend is one of the many friends I know that has suffered the loss of a loved one.
Pain hit my heart when I thought about the sorrow I know she must still have some times when she remembers that her dear loved one is no longer on this earth.
I wrote to her telling her what went through my mind. May those who feel that pain be comforted knowing that heaven will be more beautiful than any beauty we see here on this earth.
There will be more peace in the Holy City than the peace that is known when you take a vacation in the mountains to get away from the humdrum things offered in your daily life.
Every now and then I feel the pain that some times comes when we think of the sweet ones who have gone to see Jesus before we have. We are not unhappy for them, are we? We just miss them so very much it hurts to be separated from them.
I hope this does not bring tears to people unless their hearts need to release those tears that God will surely keep in a bottle.
I miss some dear ones I love, too. When I would miss Jeff Wolfe I would be reminded that if it hurts this much to be separated from one I love then I would surely hurt even more if I were to be separated from our God who is love.
I have written about those feelings before. Maybe today’s sadness that came upon me when I thought of a sweet one that has left us will be used by God to touch hearts in a special way again.
God is able to turn our sorrows into joy.
He can revive us.
He is more than able to heal the pain that hit us yesterday.
He can also heal the hurt we feel today.
The future holds blessings for those who believe.
