Sunday was my mom’s viewing, the funeral was on Monday and yesterday was the burial.
I can look at it from the position that I lost both my parents and have no immediate family left who talks to me. But, that is far from the truth. Family and friends showed up in full force. I was blessed with flowers, prayers, meals, texts, condolences and blessings.
My mom is gone and so is my dad, so how can my heart be full? God has blessed my heart with peace. I feel every prayer said over me and about me. Each prayer is like a flash of peace and contentment washing over me. My every wish has been met by God filling me with the Holy Spirit and giving me family and friends. No prayer or thought is wasted. I feel so blessed by the people God has brought into my life. Thank God for my husband, two beautiful children who always stand by my side, and my extended family, neighbors and friends who have shown up and helped me through this loss.
Each prayer is heard. Pray for your family, friends, neighbors and enemies. God hears every prayer and works each prayer for his good and the good of those who love him. Every prayer you say is a blessing to someone.
Then they cry out to the Lord in their trouble,
And He brings them out of their distresses.
He calms the storm,
So that its waves are still.
Then they are glad because they are quiet;
So He guides them to their desired haven.
–Psalm 107:28-30 (NKJV)
Blessed are those who mourn,
For they shall be comforted.
–Matthew 5:4 (NKJV)
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
–Romans 8:38-39 (NKJV)
Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’
–Isaiah 41:10 (NKJV)
