God has given you the hope of Heaven in your grief and in your trials. Praise Him for the hope of Heaven!
Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. Psalm 73:25
The telephone rang. My friend was calling — moments after her son was born with a deadly disease.
Like the mother of any newborn, she described how beautiful her baby was, and I asked her what she and her husband had named this little boy who would only be theirs for a short while before Jesus would take him to His Father’s house.
She hesitated for the briefest moment, then said, “I think we’re going to name him Gabriel. He’s our little messenger from God.”
I prayed, “Thank You, dear God, for the message in Your Word — Your goodness, faithfulness and righteousness, Your loving-kindness and hope! And thank You for Your precious little messenger Gabriel. Give him a loud voice to proclaim the glory of who You truly are!”
God has given you the hope of heaven in your grief, in your trials. Praise Him for the hope of heaven!
