No one can fully understand and indeed feel the pain of loss of a loved one like the person who is bereaved …. Indescribable..who and indeed what can comfort one at such a time as this? The good Book talks about a Comfort that can only come from the Spirit of all comforts.truly no one can bring comfort at such a time……This is why i find it appalling when people visit the bereaved and think quoting scriptural and philosophical verses will actually bring succour , i mean, SERIOUSLY????
i have come to love steve curtis chapman’s album , BEAUTY WILL RISE , the best work he has ever done in my own opinion , and which was born out of the shocking demise of his youngest child …… i love the lyrics and as i write this i have the family and hearts that were touched by the life and ministry of Dr & Mrs Myles Munroe, on my mind …….
THIS IS NOT HOW IT SHOULD BE , THIS IS NOT HOW IT COULD BE , BUT THIS IS HOW IT IS AND GOD IS IN CONTROL.
THIS IS NOT HOW IT WILL BE , WHEN WE FINALLY WILL SEE WE’LL SEE WITH OUR OWN EYES: HE WAS ALWAYS IN CONTROL.
AND WE’LL SING HOLY,HOLY,HOLY IS OUR GOD :WE WILL FINALLY REALLY UNDERSTAND WHAT IT MEANS. SO WE’LL SING HOLY HOLY HOLY IS OUR GOD , BUT WE ARE WAITING FOR THAT DAY ……..
THIS IS NOT WHERE WE PLANNED TO BE, WHEN WE STARTED THIS JOURNEY, BUT THIS IS WHERE WE ARE :AND OUR GOD IS IN CONTROL.
THOUGH THE FIRST TASTE IS BITTER , THERE WILL BE SWEETNESS FOREVER ; WHEN WE’LL FINALLY TASTE AND SEE THAT OUR GOD IS IN CONTROL,
AND WE’LL SING HOLY,HOLY,HOLY IS OUR GOD ,WE WILL FINALLY REALLY UNDERSTAND WHAT IT MEANS ,
WE ARE WAITING FOR THAT DAY , WE’LL KEEP ON WAITING FOR THAT DAY ,
OUR GOD IS IN CONTROL.
Until Eternity…..sweet sweet eternity!
