Devotional: Until Death Do We Part And Meet Again In Eternity

Hello Ladies This has been such a heart-breaking time for one of our sisters, so I will forgo saying I hope we all had a good weekend, knowing better. For those on my text chain, you know that our dear sisters (and brothers) in Christ whose mother recently passed, also lost their father this weekend. Thank you for the many prayers already, and please continue to lift them up to the Almighty for comfort during these difficult times.
Proverbs 31:28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
Proverbs 20:7 The righteous who walks in his integrity—blessed are his children after him!
Ephesians 6:1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. The McCollums were married for 51 (almost 52) years. During that that time, they raised four precious children and were blessed with several grandchildren. Over the past few years, Ronny became ill. Taking seriously her vow “in sickness and in health”, his dear godly wife was there to care for him. Because their children grew up with a living testimony of how a loving couple bonds in the midst of joy and trials, they were right there to stand beside their parents, honoring them by helping however they could. Sadly, the Lord called Joan home just last month. Although her absence was sudden and very unexpected, the children rallied around their dad as their mother would have expected of them, and tended to his needs. TWENTY-FOUR days. After being together through life’s best and worst experiences, Mr. Ronny went Home to be with the Lord just 24 days after his darling bride. Our lovely sister in Christ and her siblings had to say goodbye to both parents in such a short time. As God tends to wounded spirits, each takes comfort in knowing that their Daddy and Momma are together with Jesus. They know that by putting their trust in Christ, they too will be joined with those two again! I can just see the smile on Joan’s face when Ronny went strolling up to her, healthy and grinning from ear to ear, giving her a little wink! It is heartbreaking, but this is not the end of the story, only the beginning of a tremendously joyful one that will last for eternity! Ronny and Joan left a legacy of love for their children and future generations. Family relationships spring from the fertile soil of a solid marriage. With Joan showing her children what it meant to be a loving and devoted wife and mother and Ronny a living testament to his sons and daughters how to be a loyal and caring father and dad, those two were certainly a blessing to one another, their family and an inspiration to anyone who knew them. 1 Corinthians 13 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. PRAYER Dear Lord You are a Father to the fatherless You are our Ever Present Help in a time of need We give You praise for being Who You Are Thank You for our Comforter For the peace that passes all understanding We know comes only from You Our hearts break with our sisters and brothers in Christ Bring them to mind as we pray, for You to make Yourself known in such a personal and special way as they process their losses Praise You for godly parents who gave their children and grandchildren a home where they knew they were loved Let them carry on what they learned about caring and compassion to future generations Thank You for the price Jesus paid To give promise of Eternity in Paradise For those who put trust in Him You Are Almighty God In the best and worst of times Your Word says that You will wipe away every tear, Father How we long for the day to see You and those we love who put their faith in You To God be the glory!

First, and most importantly, I love Jesus Christ and I trust in Him as my Lord and Savior. I was raised in a Christian home by a godly dad and mom (who planned and had me in July before turning 42 in August), and 5 older siblings. My father passed away when I was 7 and my mother (who went to be with the Lord in 2005 at 81) never remarried. As a child, I was bullied at school, so I did not have many friends. I didn't want to tell my mom this because I knew she had enough worry being a widow at 50. I know what it is like to be lonely. As an adult, God showed me the value of His Friendship and has blessed me, too, with rich relationships with dear friends who also love the Lord. My husband and I (married 31 years as of 2020), have three wonderful, adult children and son-in-law as well as three darling grandchildren. Along with many others, my husband lost his job, but we refuse to be fearful or angry. The Lord has provided for us and we are so thankful for the opportunity to express gratitude through personal contact and occasional memories I share through writing. I believe the Lord has given me a venue to engage with others and a means to share His Word. Thank you for checking out my page. I hope you enjoy what you read. If there is anything positive or insightful in the devotionals (NOT CALLING MY WRITING "INSPIRED" by any means!), I give all credit and glory to Jesus Christ! On the other side of that, when something makes no sense, that's all me
