Day 214

Then I heard a voice from heaven
 saying to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are the dead
 who die in the Lord from now on.’”
“Yes,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest
 from their labors, and their works follow them.”

-Revelation 14:13

Lord Jesus,

Death of a believer looks very different to You than it does to us. We are grieving, while You witness a rejoicing in Heaven that we can only imagine. 

Thank you, Lord, that Lisa will never suffer again. Thank you that she is enjoying the rewards of her labors, but there is still suffering on this side of Heaven. 

I lift up Pastor Robert to You, and ask You to give him peace in his spirit. Help him to wait for the day when he will be with Lisa again; when he will be with You. And Lord, give us all the strength to lay down everything and everyone in our lives to You.

I ask this in Your name, Jesus,
