For I am the Lord that healeth thee.
Over the past months, my husband Bob and I have lost seven special friends in death. My analytical mind has sought and searched to find quietness for my fears from the Father. I longed to understand this enemy called death and to come to peace within my spirit. My heart yearned to figure everything out. I wanted to feel completely okay, once and for all, with dying. I went to catalogs and searched for books on healing for grief. I studied the Word. I talked with friends in desperation to find some sense of life--then death.
Again and again I would come away from my places of searching, and the answer always pointed me to the Father and His Word. I am learning that the only source of true comfort comes through immersing my heart, thoughts and feelings in the Father. His Word and presence has brought amazing comfort as He literally held my fearful heart in His hands.
I learned that no matter what--even if death should come to someone even closer to me--I would be carried through the sorrow. The Lord will heal me as I look unto Him and live.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, YOU are the true healer. I thank You for revealing Yourself so warmly to me during this time of grief. Amen.
To Do: If you find yourself bowed down with sorrow today, take a few minutes to just sit in the presence of Jesus. Allow Him to hold you on His lap as you delight in His healing presence.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
