**On The Back Side of the Desert: We can pray for you. http://retirementwithapurpose.com/pray/desert1.html
“Jesus answered them, ‘Do you finally believe? In fact, you’re about to make a run for it – saving your own skins and abandoning me. But I’m not abandoned. The Father is with me. I’ve told you all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I’ve conquered the world” (John 16:31-33, The Message)
Losing a child may be the most painful experience!
It happened to the parents of two teenage girls who drowned during an outing. But this Christian couple had a different attitude. Was there pain? Oh yes. Was there sorrow? Most assuredly. Even so, they determined to put their trust in God. To see the throne of God through their tears.
At that point they recognized their daughters had “new assignments” from God in Heaven. Their jobs were still on earth. The father said, “Although we look forward to that great reunion, we must be prepared to accomplish our God – given assignments until we all go up.”
Dear one, maybe you’ve experienced a loss recently. As a Christian you are not immune to suffering. But rest in God’s loving arms. Your loved one’s mission has moved Heavenward.
