    So sorry to hear of your loss Micki. I pray that the Lord’s comfort will sustain you through the time of grieving.


  2. Beloved Sister Micky:

    God in his love and wisdom knows what we need and when is the appointed day of our departure. I do not know the circumstances surrounding your sister’s death, but the mere certainty that she is in the presence of God is reason enough to fill us with rejoicing. Whether she stopped suffering pain or God saved her from suffering, the death of the saints is precious before God. Now, as you so beautifully say, she has been promoted.
    Thank you that your writings always fill me with encouragement in the midst of the storm. I also believe in divine healing always, but I also understand that one good day, one blessed day I will leave this world to go to the presence of God. The answer is that this life is a short earthly step, but we have an eternity with Christ ahead of us and that is more than we could get or ask for in this world.

    You, you are doing a precious work for the Lord, do not be discouraged, look, I follow you from Colombia and read you and your messages inspire me to encourage others.
    Go on as you go, God bless you greatly

    2 Corinthians 4:16-18
    Amplified Bible
    16 Therefore we do not become discouraged [spiritless, disappointed, or afraid]. Though our outer self is [progressively] wasting away, yet our inner self is being [progressively] renewed day by day. 17 For our momentary, light distress [this passing trouble] is producing for us an eternal weight of glory [a fullness] beyond all measure [surpassing all comparisons, a transcendent splendor and an endless blessedness]! 18 So we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are unseen; for the things which are visible are temporal [just brief and fleeting], but the things which are invisible are everlasting and imperishable.

    Pastor Oscar Andrés Rodríguez, Bogotá, Colombia

      Thank you for these beautiful words of hope and encouragement! I so need this today. I’m sure in the coming days and weeks, my King will bind up my broken heart and set me on another joyful path with Him. Katy just reached Him before I did, but we have all eternity…God bless you Pastor Oscar! I’m glad that you find encouragement in my words like I am finding in yours. Blessigs…Micki
