Hearts Breaking.

Today i got the news that a dear friend and fellow Woman of Hope, has gone into hospice. hearing this makes me want to soak in the light of Christ, to sit at the feet of Jesus and stand in the truth that very soon, Christ will greet my friend and give her a new body. hearts are breaking, but Lord, You restore. You are there for those who mourn. 

Jesus, you have gotten my attention. Speak to me. 

1 Corinthians 15:51-57

         But let me tell you something wonderful, a mystery I'll probably never fully understand. We're not all going to die—but we are all going to be changed. You hear a blast to end all blasts from a trumpet, and in the time that you look up and blink your eyes—it's over. On signal from that trumpet from heaven, the dead will be up and out of their graves, beyond the reach of death, never to die again. At the same moment and in the same way, we'll all be changed. In the resurrection scheme of things, this has to happen: everything perishable taken off the shelves and replaced by the imperishable, this mortal replaced by the immortal. Then the saying will come true: 

   Death swallowed by triumphant Life!
   Who got the last word, oh, Death?
   Oh, Death, who's afraid of you now?
It was sin that made death so frightening and law-code guilt that gave sin its leverage, its destructive power. But now in a single victorious stroke of Life, all three—sin, guilt, death—are gone, the gift of our Master, Jesus Christ. Thank God!
