Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.” John 14:1-2
Our lives were interrupted this week by news of the untimely death of our great niece, Savannah. When we heard about the car accident that took her life, we were all in shock. This beautiful girl had just celebrated her twentieth birthday, and now we would be attending her funeral.
Today’s post was delayed because of the service and time spent with the family, but I wanted to honor Savannah’s memory by posting something even late in the day.
I thought the pastor did a wonderful job comforting the family with Scripture and words spoken from his own heart. His comments focused on the love of God, and he said even though we can’t answer all the tough questions about why this happened, we can look to God for strength and comfort. He is with us and will be with us every day as we continue to live our lives.
Although our hearts are saddened at this great loss, I am thankful that Jesus is an ever present help in time of trouble. He is our peace that passes understanding.
