PRAYING THAT EACH OF YOU AFFECTED BY THIS TRAGEDY BE UPHELD BY GOD’S PEACE THAT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE IN LIGHT OF THE CIRCUMSTANCES! Philippians 4:7
1. God is love.
2. God is just.
3. “It is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones perish.” Matthew 18:14
4. Jesus Christ said, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying.” John 11:25
4. When we die we are immediately in God’s presence– (See #1 and 2)
–Maybe even before we actually die. Many of those who have been catapulted into heaven temporarily during surgery or by some catastrophe report feeling no trauma at all.
–They found themselves in a place of perfect peace, love, joy, light, and beauty without knowing they were dead. One little boy who drowned just said the angels came and got him. He remembered it as a happy experience.
–It is such a wonderful place they are reluctant to come back.
These books have been comforting to me lately:
