I purchased a card which had this beautiful poem of encouragement and hope for when we are in the darkest times of our lives.
Death is one of the most tragic occurrences that we will experience in our lives. We are powerless to the enemy of death; however, we have a Savior-Jesus Christ who is risen and has promised that:
“He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and Death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:4 ESV
Verse for today: For he has said, “I will never leave you or forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5
Prayer for today: Dear God, you know the grief and the sorrows that our hearts must bear and you see every tear that falls from our eyes. When the turmoils and the tragedy of death fills our lives and leaves us wounded; please help us to realize that you are here. You were victorious over death and rose on the third day as you promised. Thank you for loving us and providing the promise of eternal life where the brokenness of this life will be abolished forever and ever. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
