Days are hard to face. Nights are even harder. Night follows day whether welcomed or not. The simple life is what I always wanted and thought I had. Is it all behind me now? Will I ever again wake up in the morning without remembering that death swallowed up my child?
I want to be happy about the birds chirping their favorite songs early in the morning. I want to face the day with a smile. Are those days gone forever? I don’t have answers. I only have more questions. How is it for you?
No sooner had I written these words when I was reminded of two promises. The first is found in Proverbs 3:24, When you lie down, you will not be afraid; Yes, you will lie down and your sleep will be sweet.
And the second promise is found in 1 Corinthians 15:54, “Death is swallowed up in victory.” If I understand this promise, then God has power over the enemy and death. satan may claim our children temporarily, but soon the King of Kings in heaven will come in the clouds and wake our children from their dusty beds. His voice will travel fast enough to be heard around the world. Will it sound like thunder? How amazing! I hope He comes sooner than later. Aren’t you excited?
