Saying goodbye is never easy

Today we went to a funeral of a dear sister. As I sat there listening to the Pastor speak of this dear woman of God and all the wonderful ministry she served in her life, I could not help but think of what would be said about me?

Victoria left a legacy behind. She was known for her love for Jesus, her love for the inner city forgotten children. Her and her husband would brave parts of the city that no " normal" evangelist would go. She always had such a connection with the Lord that she knew when it was safe or unsafe. I was in awe as I sat there learning more about this gracious,loving warrior for the King.

She passed into Glory with these last words on her lips " I shall live and not die". She knew that though she may be leaving her earthly vessel she was not passing on to an eternal death but onto an eternal life with Jesus.

At this moment she is walking the streets of gold with our Savior. Oh what a sweet thought that is.

What about you? Do you know where you will be after you take your last breath? Will Our Savior come to you and say well done, good and faithful servant?

As long as you have breath in your lungs it is not too late.Jesus is waiting with open arms.

My heart is to walk the streets of heaven with all of my loved ones!

Will you be there?

  1. I've found it quite sad to be so far away from a good friend who has passed, and I know that God's timing doesn't wait on anyone. She was a warrior like I've never seen. Thanks for this post, I'm glad you were able to be there.
