HE paid the price so that we could be redeemed.
He saved us from what we deserve...
Thank you Jesus!
Now I know that Samuel is healed and whole. He is free from the burdens of this world and is full of Heaven's blessings. He is with the Father and is in better hands now. Of course, I selfishly want him with me, but I do have the assurance that I will be with him again.
I was thinking that not only is my precious child with my Savior and Redeemer Jesus, but he is also with those who you have lost.
He has also met our favorite Bible characters... his namesake Samuel who was also called at an early age to serve the Lord in a way not many understood.
Adam and Eve, Noah, Daniel, David, Mary and Joseph, the disciples...
this gives me chill bumps!! What a glorious day it is everyday in Heaven and how wonderful it is to have Easter to celebrate Jesus and His resurrection (of course, we celebrate daily, but you know what I mean)!
My family just celebrated Annaleigh's birthday and we will be celebrating Tim's tomorrow (on Easter) and this is so difficult without a piece of our heart with us. The Lord is providing great comfort peace to us all and carrying us each day. This doesn't mean that our hearts don't ache. It is unbearably painful sometimes and the tears come at unexpected times, but we keep our focus on the Lord and His plan. "'For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,' declares the LORD. 'As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts'" (Isaiah 55:8-9).
Thankful for His promises! Rejoice!
John 11:25, "Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection and the Life, he who believes in Me will live even though he dies and whoever lives and believes in Me will never die."
