God made us. We cannot fathom why's and the what-for's in HIS infinite wisdom. We can only trust HIM and obey HIS will. In our small mind, we seek understanding, logic, and answers to questions of HIS will. It is not our understanding, but HIS understanding that make manifest. Saying all this to say...I could not fathom this kind of loss. It would be fear and trembling upon me, if GOD made this so. My heart bleeds as I morn for my cousin in her loss.
I rejoice in the Lord as my own personal Savior, and praise His Holy name. Jesus Christ.
When reading about Abraham about to kill his only son, Issac, I am in awe.The angel of the LORD called to Abraham from heaven a second time and said, "I swear by myself,
declares the LORD, that because you have done this and have not
withheld your son, your only son, I will surely bless you and make your
descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the
seashore. Your descendants will take possession of the cities of their
enemies, and through your offspring all nations on earth will be
blessed, because you have obeyed me.
" (Genesis 22:10-12, 15-18, NIV)
There is comfort in the WORD.
May HIS everlasting arms surround my entire family. May we all be covered in the Blood of Jesus from the top of our heads to the souls of our feet.
I myself cannot make sense of this loss, but I surrender all.
