There are few experiences more difficult than losing a loved one in death. I find comfort in knowing death was not God’s purpose for mankind and his purpose has not changed.
The grief and sorrow we experience is temporary. (Revelation 21:4). God’s word is clear, “Your dead will live. My corpses will rise up. Awake and shout joyfully, You residents in the dust!.....And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life”. (Isaiah 26:19) The restoration of life is guaranteed because of Jehovah God’s purpose and great love for mankind!
Jesus not only spoke of the coming resurrection (John 5:21, 28, 29), he himself was resurrected by his Father and performed many miracles including resurrections. All such miraculous events took place on earth giving us a precious glimpse of what is to come.......seeing our loved ones again! (Acts 24:15)
As you cherish the many fond memories of Mrs. Tinkle, may Jehovah God continue to bless your family at this difficult time and in the days ahead......
