Thankful In Loss?


    My husband and I are at an age where our peers are beginning to pass away. We have lost two good friends, one this week. I have wondered how their wives are going to be able to go on. I have wondered how I will be able to go on if my husband dies before I do.
    Then I remember Jesus; and I know I/we will be able to go on because He has said He will never leave us. I had a little taste of loss when my dearly loved little granddaughter moved to Oklahoma a few years ago. But I found out that I can live without anyone except Jesus. I know I have to have Jesus in my life!!! I have learned that praising Jesus with thankfulness in any situation can bring joy to the most broken of hearts.
"I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in Him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit", Romans 15:13.
"Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances", 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18.
"You are my God, and I will praise You. You are my God, and I will exalt You. Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. His faithful love endures forever", Psalm 118:28-29.

  1. Sorry to hear about your friends' passing... Many times I ponder how fast time truly goes by but it also means our journeys are a step closer to its end each day. I agree with you. We have to have Jesus or else what an unfathomable loss for us all. Happy thanksgiving to you sister.
