PostSubject: Our Loss Is Their Gain   Sun Nov 12, 2017 12:05 pm

After learning of the passing of a truly wonderful person this morning I felt compelled to remember her with a devotion here on the forum. Although I can't come close to Bob's eloquent devotions I'm going to do my best to share my thoughts and do my best.

When my father passed away I went through several stages of mourning. I went from being heartbroken to angry and fell into a deep pit of self pity and sadness that I couldn't dig myself out of. He wasn't a "Godly" man in the sense that he never went to church or made Christ a priority in our home. His actions in life however were something else entirely. He was very kind and went out of his way to make everyone feel special, even those who most of us wouldn't bother giving 2 minutes of our time to. His wake was one for the record books and people from every walk of life attended. There were dirt poor people and millionaires in attendance. It left me with a sense that he did good by people and I prayed that he would be admitted into heaven. I asked the Priest if he had a chance and his only response was that he had "Started his journey".

When we started going through his things we would occasionally come across religious prayers that he had saved and I began to feel encouraged. It gave me hope that he had a private relationship with Jesus. I knew that if that was the case he had a chance and was comforted by all he had to gain in his new life everlasting with the almighty father. That thought and that thought alone pulled me from the abyss of despair and mourning and it healed me and brought me a sense of peace that I carry with me to this day.

The recent passing of our dear friend this morning however is a different story. She had a very open and close relationship with Christ in life and there's no question that she is known to our Lord and savior. She was for lack of a better description one of the kindest most wonderful people I have ever met and she had a personality that lit up a room like something out of a movie or fairy tale. For that reason I'm reminded of Revelation 21:4... "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away."

There's no doubt that she's in Heaven in God's presence in absolute paradise but she has loved one's who are devastated and heartbroken. Our loss of her has led to her gain in that she'll never suffer the problems of this earth and of mankind ever again... and that is an encouraging thought. All we need is a relationship with Christ and to truly seek redemption through his gift and sacrifice on the cross. Remembering that promise and all that it suggests is all that matters.

INSIGHT? The battle was won on the cross and through Jesus sacrifice we to can overcome death AND the mourning of our loved one's by remembering Jesus promise. Our loss is their gain and knowing that they've begun a new life with Jesus is what those of us left behind have to hold on to.

Thanks and God bless.

Truly a beautiful devotion Wayne. Thank you very much. And now you shall all know why I've been absent here. Wayne was referring to my beloved wife, Debbie. She passed into eternity on Nov. 12. I know she immediately went straight into the loving arms of Jesus. Yes Wayne, no doubt she had a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Without going into detail, she lived out her great faith in word and deed each day God blessed her with. While I know her suffering is over and she's in perfect glory now, my "flesh" still misses her and I'm still grieving. But, I thought for Christmas...I'd try and do my best to write up a devotion for the readers here. To all, please excuse my absence.

Bob

Bob, I'm shocked and saddened to learn it was your wife who passed. I can only imagine what you've been going through. My condolences for your loss, but at least you can rejoice in the knowledge that she is with Christ. May God bless and keep you.
