Growing up an only child in a Christian home, I was taught to always seek God in my good days and in my worst days. Yesterday was a worst day for my family. A very close family member had passed away due to an awful kidney infection that spread rapidly throughout their body. In the matter of seconds, just gone.
We didn’t have enough time to prepare ourselves mentally & emotionally. This moment was a complete domino affect that hit everyone. Prayer was my refuge at this point. All through the agony, I prayed. And I never finished with an amen. I just kept going, praying, not ceasing. If I got occupied, I paused in my head. Then continued where I left off.
Thankfully, the impact didn’t last long. We were able to get our heads together and plan further arrangements due to a passing.
Listen, I don’t want this post to be a sad one. Let’s not make it that. Our family member is in a far better place than this cruel world we call home. I just want to remind anyone out there if you’re going through a passing, some sort of loss, or possibly feel lost, seek Jesus. We tend to seek aromatherapy or some sort of drug, possibly other religions. But I’m here to tell you that there’s peace in Christs calling. I put that on everything I know. ❤
“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
“, and in the wilderness. There you saw how the LORD your God carried you, as a father carries his son, all the way you went until you reached this place.”
“Jesus said to him, ‘Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
“God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
Thank you for letting me spill.
