Last night at 8:12pm the only grandmother I have ever known was called Home by The Lord. Although I am saddened by the “earthly” loss; I am rejoicing! Her race here is done, she kept the faith and her very faith became sight. This is what we in Christ live for! Not for another day here but for that day THERE.
God brought the woman in Luke 8 to my mind who pressed on through the crowd to get to Jesus. Through all the madness of people and her desperation she somehow grabbed the hem of His robe and was healed. Even though she was healed eventually her body turned to ashes. Eventually our bodies will turn to ashes too. Like this woman, God has healed us all from many things, in His great plans, we can only grab the hem. One day we will trade the hem for the real Him.
No more pressing through the massive crowds to see if we can see that kind of miracle. We WILL see Him.
No more suffering for 12 years of a blood issue. We WILL be healed.
No more death.
No more sadness.
Just pure bliss.
