While I Was Away from Blogging

Published June 9, 2017 by birdieklh

Illness, Despair, Hitting rock bottom – but NEVER giving up the hope I have in Jesus Christ!

Believing in His promises – KNOWING He will never leave me nor forsake me!

KNOWING that my body IS healed and that it WILL come in line – whether in this lifetime or in my heavenly body – I knew not – but I continue to believe in His promise to me!

Visions – Revelations – whispers into my innermost being . . . still in the process of discovering the very depth of His incredible LOVE for me – my BELOVED – my JOY – and what all of what He has shown me, and continues to reveal to me means . . . and when and how to begin to share with you . . . it will come . . . it is powerful . . . I miss writing, but have been unable up to this point. It was horrible, I could hardly form sentences, think, could not type, could not read . . . could not even sing or play my musical instrument in worship . . . all was internal from my spirit to God’s heart . . . and from His Spirit to mine . . . deep and intense and rich in LOVE.

The song that got me through . . .

Death … a Part of Life

It could be someone you’ve admired for years, like Nancy Regan; or someone you love to listen to share their heart through music like Joey Martin Feek . . . joey martin feek.jpgroger beal.jpg    or it could be a close friend, someone you have worked with or gone to church with . . . .        lorraine trevino  . . . perhaps a daughter, a brother, a spouse, a mother, father, grandparent . . . there death brings an emptiness into our hearts. All of a sudden where there was joy, laughter, fullness of life, there is now this void – an overwhelming, “now what” feeling that tries to take up residence within you.

There are several things we need to remember when death knocks on our door:

1 – God IS in control, and He always has the best plan for each one of us

2 – Death is a part of life, until He returns, we all will face our last earthly breath (perhaps not exactly at the end of a long life as WE had planned, but it is a part of all life

3 – If those that have left us through death knew the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, as do we, we WILL be together again

Recently we have had numerous loses as the photos posted here reflect, and although there is a sadness, an emptiness, we do have the joy of knowing that each one represented a life that honored the Lord and that they are now free from the pain, suffering, illness, incapacitated body that they were in here on earth and are now whole and in the loving presence of their Savior!

What a difference it makes in our own hearts as we can reflect upon the lives of those special people in our lives that have gone Home – we can cherish the impact they made during their lives here, we can treasure the loving times we shared together, etc. We can thank God for allowing us to share in their lives in one way or another.

“We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.”

1 Thessalonians 4:15-17

For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:  Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”

Have you felt the sting of the loss of a loved one? Are you in the depth of grieving over the empty space which now fills where their presence used to be? If so, remember that God sent His Son, Jesus, to take our place in death (the death that we deserve due to sin), and has given us His life which is eternal (spiritual). We are a spirit, we have a soul (mind, will and emotion) and we live in a body (our temporary shell). Every one of us will live spiritually forever – the choice is ours as to how that eternal life will unfold – in Heaven with God our Father, and our Lord Jesus, or in hell (eternal separation from God).

“O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?”
Are you still unsure?

Don't ever change yourself to impress someone, cause they should be impressed that you don't change to please others -- When you are going through something hard and wonder where God is, always remember that the teacher is always quiet during a test --- Unknown
