2 weeks ago, I received the news that a dear sister in Christ was called Home. The night before, I prayed with my wife if God will heal her, let him do it, otherwise, let him bring her back.
And thought of it saddened me. Yet at the same time, there’s joy in my heart that she’s gone to a better place, free from her suffering. And God knows what’s best.
I was reminded also that it was on the same date, 17 years ago my dad went home with the Lord. It still saddened me. But I remember the bible verse given to me on that occasion, that death brings out new life (John 12:24).
For this dear sister, I remembered something she shared to me, and I pray it will bring out new life
