comfort one another with these words

IMG_9139My husband has a very special way with words and he just wrote an incredible blog with such a strong and beautiful perspective (like he always does), so you should go read that for sure at his blog, levilusko.com.

I just want to say thank you to all of you who are praying, to all of you who have just been so generous and kind with your love and words and prayers.  I was talking with a woman the other day about how incredibly humbling it is when the body of Christ surrounds you with prayer.  It’s beautiful.

I want to say that there is no hope found anywhere except for in Jesus Christ. There is no peace that passes understanding except from our God who created us and knows us and loves us and holds us. There are no words of comfort except for in God’s Word, and this passage, 1Thessalonians 4:13-18 bring just that:

“And regarding the question, friends, that has come up about what happens to those already dead and buried, we don’t want you in the dark any longer. First off, you must not carry on over them like people who have nothing to look forward to, as if the grave were the last word. Since Jesus died and broke loose from the grave, God will most certainly bring back to life those who died in Jesus.

And then this: We can tell you with complete confidence—we have the Master’s word on it—that when the Master comes again to get us, those of us who are still alive will not get a jump on the dead and leave them behind. In actual fact, they’ll be ahead of us. The Master himself will give the command. Archangel thunder! God’s trumpet blast! He’ll come down from heaven and the dead in Christ will rise—they’ll go first. Then the rest of us who are still alive at the time will be caught up with them into the clouds to meet the Master. Oh, we’ll be walking on air! And then there will be one huge family reunion with the Master. So reassure one another with these words.”

I miss the Lenya Bird, but I know exactly where she is, and I know we will see her soon and very soon.  Every day brings us closer.

    I was there the first day you guys came to church to talk about your baby daughter leaving earth to go to heaven. It was the first time we attended Fresh Life Church, and from the moment we saw the video, to the moment I heard you guys talk, I knew this was the church I wanted to attend for the rest of our time in Lakeside in Montana.
    I sobbed even though I tried to hold it back, even though I haven´t met you before.
    The pain was so real, I could touch it, it could touch me, and it hurt me too.
    But then I saw and heard of your true faith in the Lord. I knew none of you were faking, not the pain, nor the faith.
    And I knew this church was under great leaders and awesome children of God.
    Thanks for sharing it all, in spite of the pain!
    It brings many like me closet to God.
