She placed all her hope, trust, joy, peace and faith in Him for what laid ahead.
Her brother struggled over the last decade with a rare diagnosis and passed away just two weeks ago. As we laid my uncle to rest, a train made itself known in the background. It was a comforting sight for me, because I remembered what she told my aunt about a train coming.
These close siblings did not grow up in church, but longed to be apart of a close knit community of Christians. Later, as young married adults they found and joined in with different denominations of believers and enjoyed the sweet fellowships that comes along with a church family.
I listened and took to heart what was communicated to me during several honest conversations with them about their faith, and what they felt God was revealing to them before they passed. We attended a Church of The Highlands' service the day after my uncle's funeral, and this verse was listed in the message.
So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (ESV)
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." John 14:6 (ESV)
If you do not have a personal relationship with Him, please ask me how to know Him. If you are not sure where your spirit is headed after your body eventually gives out, don't ignore that tugging at your heart. That tugging is placed there to help you.
Stay humble & be BOLD!
"Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." Psalm 119:105 (ASV)
