Last meme, I promise…at least for now.
Sometimes I want to scream at Facebook!
I recently told a friend, “I’m tired of death!”
First all our parents died within a few years of each other, then our son, then so many friends! Now we have at least six friends with terminal cancer. Yuck.
Don’t you just love the “But God” passages?
But God who is rich in mercy made us alive in Christ. And Christ, through His death and resurrection has conquered death!
For now, we don’t get to see it all. For now, we still suffer and grieve and mourn. But one day! But one day, we will get to see Him face to face! We will join our kids and loved ones before the throne and worship the Creator as we have never done before! One day there will be no more tears, no more death, no more sorrow, and no more pain!
Until then, how shall we live? How shall we live while we’re waiting?
I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
Ephesians 4:1-3 |ESV
