Good Evening to All!
My heart and my mind have been consumed with sorrow, the feeling of loneliness in a "sea of people". Even though I know there are many people just like me who mourn the loss of our wonderful friend, I can't seem to gain strength. I know there are friends of Neita's that have known her ALL of her life, friends who she taught in Sunday school, friends who she "mentored", who probably feel as lost if not more lost that I, so to those friends I say, "my heart goes out to you". I loved her dearly and I know it will take a good while before the sting of loss eases.
From My Bible Promise Book I read these scriptures hoping to ease my pain somewhat. They did reassure me, but the pain is still there. Maybe there is someone out there in blogland who has just lost a loved one or friend, and maybe these will reassure you as well.
My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever. Psalm 73:26
But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for He shall receive me.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me, thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Psalm 23:4
O death, where is thy sting? O grave where is thy victory? 1 Corinthians 15:55
The wicked is driven away in his wickedness: but the righteous hath hope in his death. Proverbs 14:32
Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. Romans 5:9
Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death. John 8:51
For this God is our God forever and ever: He will be our guide even unto death. Psalm 48:14
He will swallow up death in victory: and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; ... Isaiah 25:8
Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace. Psalm 37:37
