Words are so important particularly to those who are grieving over the loss of a loved one. Often I am at a loss for words. The Apostle Paul writing to the church at Thessalonica gave them words to comfort one another. They were words of hope when he told them that the Lord would descend from heaven with a shout. “Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” (1 Thessalonians 4:19 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible). What comforting words these are!
Prayer: Hope of Your soon return is a comforting word for me. When I feel such heaviness over my losses, I can read Your Word and be comforted knowing You are coming back to take us from this world of sorrow. Thank You, Jesus!
