You’ll have to pardon this Daily Thankful-esque post, but I feel that I need to share what is on my heart.
My dear friend’s mother passed away this evening – just over an hour ago. I am feeling very sad. Not upset or angry, but sad for my friend, and for the loss of such a remarkable and kind woman of God (for the purpose of this post, I’ll refer to her as Mrs. Davis).
However, I am thankful that my friend and her entire family are believers; consequently, there is a hope that they all have – a Biblical truth to which they can cling – that they will see Mrs. Davis again.
To me, this is the ultimate source of hope – eternity with the Lord, and the promise of being reunited with those who have preceded us in death. Otherwise, to what do you cling to when death is staring you – or someone you love – squarely in the face?
Eternal hope. At the end of the day, that’s all that really matters, no?
