Facing Death and God
Weekly devotional by Barbara Sanders

cross 2 Corinthians 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

None of us want to face death, especially an early death. We all know that death shall come to each of us in our time. But, to think that one of our loved ones will leave us is something we had rather not think about. But, we know, one of these days, it will come our way.

Yesterday, I heard that a friend of ours was at death's door. The doctors have given her only a few days to live. She has suffered with cancer, and now it's spread so and toxins have taken over her body. To us, she is too young to die. She's our age, and has two children that have been friends with our children for about twenty years. Although they are grown, this is tough for them to comprehend. Their Dad died when they were only teenagers, and they've been very close to their mom. It will certainly be a blow to them to lose their mom so early in their lives.

Although death seems so final for us, and we grieve so for our loved ones, it's not the end of life. For a Christian who dies early, he or she will go to meet the Lord. This should give us a peace within our minds, and help the grieving process - to be assured that our loved ones have eternal life with the Saviour.

Heavenly Father, each of us have a destiny to fulfill - either to be with you eternally, or hell. Hopefully, each of us has made the choice to reach our eternal destination, saved by grace, through faith, and live with you forever. We thank you for the choice you have given us, and thank you that you have chosen us to live with you. We give you praise. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
