Condolences

  • My heart and prayers goes out to the family. I pray that you will find comfort in knowing that death was never a part of God’s plan. Death is God’s enemy and it is not stronger than God. Just as our heavenly father had the desire and the power to create life, motivated by that same desire and by means of that power, he promises to undo death. Even though death causes great sadness to those left behind to grieve, God’s wonderful promises gives us a reason for joy … 1 Corinthians 15:26; John 5:28, 29; Revelations 21:3, 4.
