SACRED TEARS

sacred-tears

As we grow older, we expect to attend more and more funerals.  This life is short, but for those who have been purchased and ransomed by God’s own Son, it doesn’t end there

Today we’re attending a funeral of a young man, aged 31, who left a wonderful wife and two darling little girls behind.  He also left his parents, siblings, cousins, aunts and uncles and a whole congregation who watched him grow into a man.  He was the son of our pastor and wife.  Many tears will be shed – not for Tim, but for those he leaves behind.  We know that this child of God is now in paradise enjoying the benefits of heaven.

Still hearts are broken and tears will fall.  In this sadness, I ask that God gives comfort to this family.  The grief will eventually wane, but the memories of this man will live on through his great legacy – his wife and children.

When we are sad, when hearts are breaking,

We need to be wrapped in the protection of God’s holy wings,

Each pinion gently lays over us – cuddling and nurturing,

The softness and strength are overwhelming,

He breathes His presence upon us and gives new life,

He speaks and we are comforted,

His touch is gentle yet full of amazing power,

His steadfastness feeds us – nourishes our souls – guards us from all evil,

His love is unfailing.  A love so great that it’s indescribable,

His compassion is equal to His might,

We will never be alone as long as He is with us,

Whether in hopeless moments or times of joy,

Lord, be in our hearts, minds and understanding.

Be with us in life so that we will know you fully when we meet you after death.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
