One of my wife’s dearest friends is in the process of seeing her dear mom leave this world. Pam also said goodbye to her mom this year. Pam sent her friend these words of encouragment and comfort about OUR FATHER.
“As OUR FATHER gathers your mom to her true home, I am 100% confident that He will give you the comfort and strength that you will need,
And your needs will clock in at one moment at a time, only.
The entire essence of our EverlastingTrue Vine will pass
into the receptive branch of your life, one moment at a time. That is the promise of our Lord Jesus Christ. You will be amazed at the comfort
and thoughts He will whisper into your mind, heart, emotions. Yes, there is pain. But there is equal comfort from Him. Hang on to His hand
tightly and do not let go not even for a moment.
I remember my dad telling me to SQUEEZE his finger as hard as the pain hurt. I was just 5 years old, sitting in his lap at the dentist, having
a tooth pulled. He told me I could never hurt him no matter how hard I squeezed. I am sure our Lord inspired him to tell me that. I was so
scared, but my dad was holding me and I could hold his finger and SQUEEZE!!!
Hold onto Jesus' finger and SQUEEZE however hard it may hurt, my friend.”
God does not offer us answers to all of our questions during times of pain, but He does invite us all to “SQUEEZE” and be comforted.
