Death · Power · Sovereignty

death… ugh…!

Death… ugh…
it struck again…
quickly… unexpected…
I hate it…!

But in the midst…
I hear Him…

Truly, truly, I say to you,
unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies,
it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.
John 12:24 ESV
He died… Himself… 
that we might live…
be His fruit… 
bear more fruit…
And he is the head of the body, the church.
He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead,
that in everything he might be preeminent.
Colossians 1:18 ESV
And in the midst…
I praise and trust His sovereignty…
Who has spoken and it came to pass,
unless the Lord has commanded it?
Is it not from the mouth of the Most High 
that good and bad come?
Lamentations 3:37-38 ESV
I praise Him for His power…
What the enemy intends for evil…
He intends for good… and the saving of many lives…
Still… death… 
UGH…
I hate it…!
But so grateful… for what He does with it…
and that the one who died…
still lives…
He broke the power of death and illuminated
the way to life and immortality through the Good News.
2Timothy 1:10 NLT
Yet… those left behind…
desperately… need Your grace…
Father God… I pray for those who have suffered a great and unexpected loss… cover them with Your grace… carry them in Your arms… surround them with Your unfailing love…
Provide the way… for those traveling… smooth out any rough places… flood them with Your inexplicable peace… and comfort…
Thank You… Lord… thank You…
You are great… You are good…
