We’re so sorry to hear about your loss. At Ecclesiastes 9:11,12 , it states,”I have seen something further under the sun,…because time and unexpected events overtake them all. For man does not know his time….when it suddenly overtakes them.” At John 11:25, Jesus said …”I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.” May these scriptures give you hope and comfort as they did our family. May God be your strength in the days to come.
We are sorry to hear about your loss. Sickness has robbed us of our loved ones resulting in their death. May these scriptures bring you all comfort. Isaiah 33:24 promises ,”And no resident will say: “I am sick.” The people dwelling in the land will be pardoned for their error.” When Jesus was on earth he healed the sick and raised the dead. At John 11:25 “Jesus said to her: “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.” What a wonderful hope we can look forward to and may God strengthened you in the days ahead.
