A Powerful Word For Those Who Have Lost Loved Ones

For what it is worth, I thought I would pass this incredible testimony onto the rest of you. Awhile back ago on TBN, they had a middle-aged couple on one of their talk shows that were really anointed.

They had their own church and ministry, but I cannot recall where it was at. But part of their testimony was on the death of their young daughter.

Here they were, serving God full time with their church and ministry, and their daughter ends up dying at a fairly young age. I came in on the story right as they were talking about it. I did not catch the age of the daughter or what the cause of her death was.

The wife had really been wrestling with God. How could You take her away from us so early in her life, how could You allow this to happen, why didn’t You heal her, why didn’t You protect her?

Both the wife and husband were really having a hard time in getting over her early death with the Lord. They could not understand or get a direct answer from God as to why He allowed their daughter to be brought home at such a young age and rob the both of them the joy of seeing their daughter grow up.

After all of this wrestling with the Lord for quite sometime, the wife said she then received a direct word from the Holy Spirit that immediately set her free from her mental captivity. And boy did I get a whopper witness off this Word!

I will give you exactly what the Word was and an additional revelation that God gave the both of them on the death of their young daughter.

For those of you who have lost close, loved ones in your past – grab a hold of this direct Word from the Lord. This Word from the Lord has been used by this couple to set many other people free from the depression and anger they have slipped into as a result of not being able to deal with the death of a close loved one.

The wife said she was in the kitchen when she heard the Holy Spirit speak directly to her.

The words were: “Your daughter is no longer in the past – she is now in the future.”

Think about these words!

The wife said as soon as she heard these words – she immediately knew what God was trying to tell her and it immediately set both her and her husband completely free of the mental torment they were still going through with the death of their daughter.

God was telling them that their daughter was no longer in their past. She had died and she was now in heaven with God and Jesus!

God was telling them that they now had to move on with their lives, to let the past go, including the death of their daughter, and to continue to press forward into the divine call that He had placed on both of their lives.

Their daughter is now in their future!

When they both die, they will both cross over into heaven and be immediately reunited with their daughter once again.

God was telling them to change the “angle” with which they were looking at their daughter’s death from.

Instead of seeing her as being “dead in the past” – start seeing her as being “fully alive in heaven” – and understand that you will be reunited with her once again in a very short period of time.

Our time on this earth is not even a blink of an eye compared to the eternal time frame that is operating in heaven.

1.  You have to step back and look at the big picture. We are all going to die and cross over – no exceptions!

Some just go sooner than others. When you die is irrelevant.

What you do with the time that you have down here is what really matters.

It’s quality – not quantity!

When you really grasp the meaning of the words that the Holy Spirit spoke to her – you understand that they should actually be rejoicing.

Their daughter is now in the most perfect place imaginable and they are both guaranteed to be reunited with her once they die and cross over.

They should be keeping the picture of their daughter in front of them – in their own personal futures – which will also be heaven for the both of them when they die and cross over.

God was also telling them that if they did not quit wallowing in their past, they would eventually die in their past, and they would no longer be able to move forward for Him because they would end up staying stuck in their past.

Too many people are bound up with things that have happened to them in their past. They cannot let go of some of the bad things that may have occurred in their past.

As a result, their past slowly starts to eat away at them until they get to a point where they no longer have any joy or zest for living.

They then start slipping into depressions and then lose all of their desire to even want to live anymore.

2.  Shortly after receiving this direct revelation from the Lord and being set free, they came across a woman who had also lost her son.

Her son had died about a year ago and the woman had slipped into a severe depression. She had literally boarded up her house, closed all the drapes and curtains, and would no longer even go outside.

She had completely shut down due to the pain and heartache she was going through at losing her son at what apparently was also a fairly young age.

This couple had given their testimony on the above revelation to a church this woman had been attending. The testimony was taped and one of the church members then slipped the tape to this woman who had boarded herself up in her house.

The woman took the tape into her bedroom. She listened to it over and over again all night along, literally until the sun broke at dawn.

When the sun broke at dawn, she later testified that she knew God was speaking to her through this couple’s testimony on this tape. She said the message and revelation from this couple that was on this tape set her free from the mental captivity that she had placed herself under as a result of not being able to see the truth of her son’s death.

The Bible says that the truth will set you free and this is a perfect example of this biblical truth coming into full operation!

Once she heard the revelation given by the Holy Spirit to this couple – she knew she had been looking at her son’s death from the wrong angle.

Her son is now in heaven and she should be looking forward to being reunited with him in heaven once she crosses over – not dwelling on his death, which was now in her past.

Once she fully grasped what God was trying to tell her, and it apparently took all night for this revelation to really sink into her mind, she was finally set free and was able to start fully living again.

This couple said that these specific words spoken to them by the Holy Spirit has helped many other people deal with the death of their close loved ones.

Bible Verses For Death of Loved Ones

1. Here are 3 good verses from Scripture that will back up the words spoken to this couple by the Holy Spirit.

  • But Jesus said to him, “No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.” (Luke 9:62)
  • “… but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead. I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:13-14)

Look at the words in this second verse: “forgetting those things which are behind” and “reaching forward for those things which are ahead.” This verse perfectly lines up with what the Holy Spirit was trying to tell this couple – to let the death of their daughter go, which was now in their past, and to look forward, to press forward for the things which are now ahead of them in their futures.

And one of the things ahead for this couple in their futures will be their own physical deaths and their own crossing over into heaven and being reunited with their daughter, where they will never be separated from her ever again!

2. This next verse talks about plowing forward in hope.

“… he who plows should plow in hope, and he who threshes in hope should be a partaker of his hope.” (1 Corinthians 9:10)

This verse is telling us that each one of us should continue to plow for God with whatever time we still have left down here on this earth – with the understanding that we will eventually be reunited with all of our saved loved ones who have gone home before us.

And not only should we continue to plow forward with this hope in mind, but we should also be a partaker of that hope. In other words, really believe that when you die, you will be reunited with all of your saved loved ones, and this time it will be for good – for all of eternity!

Heaven is going to be the final and ultimate reward for all Christians. The Bible tells us that we cannot even begin to imagine all of the good things that God will have in store for all of those who will be entering into His dwelling place. But one thing we do know for sure – we will all be given the two greatest rewards any human can ever hope to receive once we cross over to the other side.

  • We will forever be united with God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ and we will be able to have direct contact and fellowship with the both of Them for the rest of all of eternity.
  • And then to top it all off – we will forever be reunited with all of our saved loved ones who have made it into heaven, and we will once more be able to enjoy the friendships that we had established with each one of them while living down here on this earth.

Now that’s an incredible one-two punch that can’t be beat. And to top it all off, there will be mansions and who knows what else from God the Father.

For all those of you who have lost very close loved ones, you have to step back and see the real big picture – the real ending to the story.

So many people have lost the rest of their earthly lives because they could never get over the death of a close loved one.

And the reason they could not get over their deaths is due to the fact that they were looking at their deaths from the wrong “angle.”

The Holy Spirit gave this couple what I feel is a very powerful and liberating Word on this subject. He gave them a Word that was pure, solid, God-truth. And once you receive a direct truth from God the Father – it will set you free if you are willing to accept it and then work with it.

The other thing that happened with this couple is that before they received this direct Word from the Lord, they found themselves taking their daughter’s pictures and photos out of a lot of their family portraits because it was too painful for them to see her and to be reminded of her death.

After receiving the above Word from the Lord, they were then told to put all of her pictures back in with the rest of the family pictures.

He told them that she was not dead – that she was fully alive in heaven – and that they should all be rejoicing because their time would come when they would all be reunited with her once again.

They were told not to try and put her out of their memory. They were to keep intact all of her photos and all of their memories of her.

They were all to look forward to the future when they would once again be reunited with her in heaven.

When this couple received all of the above from God the Father through the Holy Spirit, they were then all set free from the mental captivity they had placed themselves under, and they were then able to pick themselves back up and get back into fully living in their present again.

The other revelation that the wife received from God the Father was on the question as to why – why did God allow her daughter to be taken home so early?

God basically told her there will be times when He will not tell you why He allows something specific to happen in your life, like the early death and departure of a close loved one.

Sometimes it may be better that you not know why God brings someone home so early. Maybe that person was going to have something really bad happen to them somewhere down the road and God wanted to spare them the pain of having to go through it – so He arranges to have them brought home early.

There could be many different reasons as to why God may have brought this person home early, and maybe with half of those reasons you are better off not knowing.

She finally came to the conclusion that if it was God’s will that she not know why He had brought her daughter home so early – that she would simply have to trust God that He did have a good enough reason to bring her home early and to let it go at that!

The Bible says that we can only “know in part.” We will never get all of the answers to all of life’s problems and dilemmas. God will answer many of our questions if He is properly approached.

The Bible says to “ask, and you will receive.”

But when God does decide not to answer a specific question you may have, then you have to accept the fact that He has a good enough reason not to give you His answer, trust that He knows what He is doing and what is best for the situation at hand – and then move on with the rest of your life.

If you don’t, you will run the risk of getting stuck in the misery of your past. And if you do not pull up out of the misery of your past, then you will never fully accomplish whatever God’s perfect plan and destiny would have been for your life.


For those of you who have had a very difficult time in accepting the death of a close loved one, really chew on the above Word given to this couple by the Holy Spirit.

For those of you who may know someone who is really having a hard time handling the death of a close loved one like a child, a spouse, a parent, or a best friend, give them a copy of this article and/or sit down with them and give them the above Word from the Spirit of God.

Share the above testimony with them on this couple and the other woman who had lost her son.

Pray that God will move in on them with illumination and insight so they can fully grasp and understand that even though the death of a close loved one is a very painful experience, that their loved one’s death is now a new beginning for them.

Their close loved one is now in the most perfect place imaginable and they will be reunited with them once again in just a very short period of time. This life on this earth is just for a very brief moment in the eternal scheme of things – but the life to come, where they are at now, will be forever.

Remember what the Holy Spirit Himself has spoken – your loved one is no longer “dead in your past” – your loved one is now “fully alive in your future” – which is heaven.

    I’m confused!! In the bible the book of Revelation says no one is in heaven or hell!! The bible says when God comes back that will be judgement day!! Everyone will go before him and be judged. It’s then that God will decide your fate!! Either you go to heaven or you go to hell!!
    When a loved one dies people always say Heaven gained another angel!! While it makes you feel better, if that’s possible, it’s not true!! Keep up!!

    I am helped by the revelation from the Holy Spirit to the hurting mother on the loss of her loved daughter.It’s exactly 1 year and 2 week since 34 year old son went to be with the Lord.Also 20 years ago I Iost my daughter at 21.. The pain has been overwhelming.I keep telling God that I can’t manage a lone.Without His help my life would just collapse.Many occasions excruciating pain wakes me up in the middle of the night.I plead with the Lord to hold my to help me stand and I get some peace enough to catch a sleep.I also ask God for a assistance that I may not blame Him.The loss of a loved one is a painful deep wound that Yehova God soothes and binds.He assures us that His is close the brokenhearted and heals the hurting spirit.May He give us the strength to wait up on Him.

    I lost my son in a drowning on June. 1. 2018 he was trying to rescue another teen in a flooded river. All day long the holy spirit impressed pain me that something was wrong, I had a heavy feeling that day that something bad was about to happen. I have back problems so I was on pain meds. I don’t understand why I didn’t seek the Lord’s presence on what was going on. I believe if he did my son maybe would not have died or I would have been instructed him not to go or would have had peace about it. He had just turned 18 on may 11 of this year. I can’t forgive myself for not seeking the Lord that day. Basically I didn’t listen to the holy spirit when he was speaking and my son died because I didn’t. It’s torment now.

    • Michelle - August 30, 2018 at 12:57 pm

      Hi Michael,

      That’s Satan the Accuser. Don’t listen to that voice in your head! We all live with guilt and regret. Allow Jesus to heal your heart to help you keep moving on. I felt the same pull as you did – I think that’s just our human instinct, that when we really love someone, our connection is so powerful that we can sense things. I knew my boyfriend died before hearing the news.

      Ephesians – armor of God. Really visualize what each part means and that you’re wearing it to protect yourself from attacks. During my grief, I was under attack too. My pastor taught me this. I hope it helps!

  5. Bobbi - June 13, 2018 at 3:17 pm

    I was looking for a prayer online through words of the Bible because I just found out a very closed friend of mine has been taken to hospice. I came across this article, coincidence? I don’t think so. This was meant for me to read today. Thank you Lord for helping me find it and giving me comfort. To read what I know and just have it confirmed was a blessing for me.

  6. KS - June 1, 2018 at 7:01 pm

    I lost my son on May 16, 2018. He was only 21 years old. I am devastated beyond repair and feel like I will never be able to move on. God has blessed me with such a loving and gentle soul and the best relationship a mother and son could have. Then in a flash he left this earth. I read the article and feel that could true for my beautiful son, he is my future. I long to see him again and do not understand why he left so early in his life. I have been told to “rest in God’s decision”. I struggle with that but hope to find a sign that he is in living surrounded by light and love. I feel him around me sometimes, it is peaceful, then I become overwhelmed again with saddness. I pray I can become stronger in faith and ensure that i am able to see him again someday.

    • Shawn - August 10, 2018 at 7:38 pm

      I am so sorry. I lost my 55 year old husband on May 28th of this year. I needed to hear these words as well. Some days are still very hard but my hope is in Jesus. Prayers for you.

        I lost my husband of 35 years on May 26, 2018. I feel so lost and lonely.

        • JoAnn - October 7, 2018 at 8:48 pm

          The second year that Iodt my wonderful husband and soul mate is coming up on Oct.13, 2018. I am having a very difficult time this year I think last year I was still in a zombie state so it wasn’t as bad. My faith I believe is what has gotten me through to this point. But I keep feeling so very lonely that I may not ever be with my Joe again and that would make me physically sick…For some reason today when I seemed to be at my lowest I came upon this article!!
          Praise the Lord….,thank you. God is good He is with us..through it all.

      • Tammy - October 7, 2018 at 9:48 pm

        I lost my husband June this year. I look forward to that reunion in Heaven with him one day. Yes, its still very hard without him here by my side, but knowing hes now healed and suffers no more is of great comfort!

  7. Debbie - May 15, 2018 at 1:15 am

    The first story about the couple that lost a girl reminded me of myself. When my son died I was unconscionable. I was in a terrible depressed state. I ended up having a nervous break down. I wanted to kill myself. I believed that I would never feel better because my son will still be gone. Anyway, after the nervous break down I didnt feel much better, every day I was depressed, but I found a religious meeting that helped me a lot. Then I found a good church, and slowly I was able to feel better. Then I got on the right anti-depressants, and I felt the best. For 40 years I asked God for a sign, and I can’t say he didnt give me any because he did, but I wanted to know if I was going to heaven. Well it is a long story but I will try to make it short. A friend on his death bed asked God to help him believe and he got up and walked.The hospital took a film of him, and people were asking for his autograph.Then he started getting messages from God and everything checked out. He told me things I didn’t know was in the bible, read my mind, I mean it was bazaar.Anyway he said God said I was going to heaven if I didn’t kill myself or do something really bad and not ask forgiveness. I have been walking in the twilight zone ever since, and I will believe it until the day I die and be grateful to God and Jesus.

    • Ann - June 15, 2018 at 7:53 pm

      What about mental illness and sucide, Can God understand: he knew not what he was doing at that time of death? Can God forgive a loved one who had brain tumors and brain injury, mental illness and depression, on the wrong pills for sleep all contributed to his untimely death. I am so worried about his soul and love him still. Please help me God I am not getting over this trauma.
      Thanks so much

      • Sheri - July 29, 2018 at 6:14 pm

        • Ann Anderson - September 30, 2018 at 2:37 pm

          Thank you Sheri,

          I am still suffering and cry daily for him and pray for his wisdom. I am without
          a job and losing everything without him.
          But I still love him as a 4th wife with 0 income on the verge of homelessness

          Thank you,

      Believe that Jesus died for you on the cross. Repent of your sins and live for Him. That’s how you will know you’re going to Heaven.

  9. Dan - April 21, 2018 at 4:30 am

    These comments, for the most part, are very encouraging when dealing with the loss of a loved one who was a believer. What about dealing with the loss of a loved one who didn’t know Christ? I am a strong believer and my focus is not on the past or wrapped up in false guilt about “doing more” to share Christ when they were alive. I shared and they didn’t respond, I know each person needs to make that decision personally, but I have trouble finding any comfort about their deaths because I know, short of something miraculous that may have happened in this person’s heart just before their death, I will not see them in heaven. I would appreciate any specific verses someone could share in this regard. Thanks.

    • Karen Dobrovolny - September 18, 2018 at 5:16 pm

      Dan, this is exactly how I feel about my son. He passed on 6/21/18 and he was Agnostic. I’m so afraid of how he is, where he is, if I’ll see him again. I think about it all the time. He had some pretty dark interests and that scares me so much. I raised him to believe in God and Jesus. But when they get s certain age, they just go their own way sometimes.

  10. Bonnie - March 27, 2018 at 12:09 pm

    • Constance frazier - May 20, 2018 at 8:08 pm

      I am going through something similar and it’s seems so unbearable. How are you holding up? I lost my significant other of 3.5 years 3 weeks ago and most days I feel like it’s so unbearable that I just wanna go be with him…. we were closer than close and besties as well… birthdays are 3 days apart and were in love not just at the beginning but our honeymoon phase lasted the entire 3.5 years… everyday is so painful. I wanna learn how to help myself… you seem like a strong lady. This is my first time posting public about my loss but your story gave me strength to respond to your post. I hope u will respond back. Maybe we can help one another…

  11. always a kid - February 20, 2018 at 11:17 pm

    my mom is currently in palliative as i write this. its definitely hard. i am middle aged now n losing a role model parent means i no longer am a kid but need to assume the role of an adult. it is not easier when some of us are more emotionally built rather than practical. my mom still worries about me n luckily since last yr i have finally committed to being a full on Christian. i know she is in pain n suffering… so i must be the adult now and step up to say farewell to her instead…n hold on not to her hand but her memories…but yet not live in the past but in the future…. anticipating meeting her again. the sad part is that we do not assume the same roles as we did in this world. i do sincerely miss her. its toughest to come home to see her absence.

  12. Ida - January 22, 2018 at 5:53 pm

    I understand that when your love one dies either unexpected or straged, and those that are missing and What about the families find no closure. I truly understand God message of were are love ones go regardless. But why is it that some get the message and others do not. I am talking about the holy spirit talking to the women

  13. Harrison Ned - January 16, 2018 at 8:01 pm

    I am a 69 year old father of two men whom I cherish beyond words. My eldest whom I’ll call by his first name only. Sean is his name. Sean struggled with addictions but the last six months I noticed the difference in him, that of Peace and Tranqulity. Sean suffered immensely from losing his two daughters as the result of his addictions. He lived with us for several months before his passing. Approximately a month prior to his leaving us I asked him if he believed in a higher power. His answer brought me instant hope. He gave me a look I have never noticed before and he said, “yes I do”. I knew immediately he had recovered. Then on December 9, 2011 I was on my early walk when my called and said I needed to come home now. I knew immediately what had happened. The next morning I knelt by his bedside and clutched onto my son’s Bible and my Book of Mormon and prayed with tears streaming down my face and I asked our Father in Heaven if Sean was happy and safe. Then three days after his departure as I stood in my living room and sense something pass through my body. It gave me chills up through my head, my hairs stood literally on end. I sensed that is was my son. On December 19, 2011 exactly ten days after he left I witnessed something miraculous. At 1:10 a.m., something woke me up. Two orbs the size of silver dollars appeared out of nowhere. The top one was bluish grey in color and the one about an inch lower was yellowish gold. Immediately after they became absolutely still a Light so Bright I couldn’t look into it as I looked away and at the ceiling. I noticed it started to dim and it was than I turned my head and looked into the light once again. As I did an outline started left to right and it was a perfect outline of my son’s face and I was stunned by pure happiness and instantly gave me Peace in my Heart. The orbs blipped out and the Brilliant Light trailed down towards my son’s urn and disappeared. I have shared my experience whenever I felt the need of anyone who would listen to my testimony.

    My son was stillborn. When I found out I was pregnant they told me that it was a molar pregnancy and he would not live. It turned out to not be a molar pregnancy and he was “happy and healthy”. Another test showed that he had a high NT scan signifying a chromosome issue. The blood test came back negative. The amniocentesis came back negative and I was told he was okay. The next ultrasound they checked for the fluid build up around the neck (the NT) and it was worse than before. The doctor gave my son 3 weeks to live. He died December 24th, 2017 and was born December 27th, 2017. He had half the time the doctor permitted. God took my child away from me. Let me believe that my baby was healthy in my womb only to let him die

    Hello, my name is Angela and I lost my son July 11th 2017, he was born July 4th 1981, he was 35. He went to sleep on my couch and never woke up.Danny was my 1st born and only son and 1year 3months and 14 days my heart still hurts every day. For the 1st 4 months every day I I would wake up mad that I woke up. I no longer wake up mad. I wake up now knowing that everyday I’m 1 more day closer to seeing my son again. I now live to live again. I will say that my life has 4ever changed. I trust God with all my heart, I will never understand God’s why, but He is God and my hope is in Him. I can’t wait to see my son but until then I will live until I no longer have too. Keep me in your prayers as I keep you all In mine.

      I understand what you are going through. I lost my 29-yr old son and my 59-yr old husband in 2.5 years. I have hope I will see them again….I am not 100% sure they were saved. They were baptised, they prayed, my son wore his cross but is that enough? These comments help because you know your not the only one going through this tragic life. I pray everyday….I just wish I could hear someone respond to me. Some people hear God speaking to them …I want that too!

        Dear Dar,
        Before responding, l prayed for you & asked God to only have me to share what He would have me to share with you.
        Several years ago my husband & I went to my uncle’s funeral..I have a cousin who I hadn’t seen in years. She was so broken up…not only because she hadn’t seen her dad since she was little, but because she had been praying for his salvation & had not had the opportunity to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with him. As I heard her story,..with tears building up in my eyes,…I hugged her & looked her straight in her eyes & told her your prayers were not in vain…my husband & I had visited him @ the
        hospital before he had passed,..we shared the gospel with him..he had repented & with tears in his eyes,he had asked for forgiveness & asked Jesus Christ into his heart. As I had shared this with my cousin,..it was like a faucet had been turned in her eyes & a stream of tears had been released…we laughed,..we cried…it was confirmation & peace of mind to her that had been lifted from her shoulders.
        I too lost my daughter who was 23yrs young. She was in the military & was saved.
        As a believer of Jesus Christ, more than anything you want to know that your loved ones will be in glory.
        The Bible says that God will not give you more than you can handle..l believe that to be true. Also..2 Cor. 1:3-4….Paul refers to the God of all comfort…no matter how hard some trials can be, we can always trust that our God is faithful & will see us through.
        I hope & pray this was helpful & comforting to you.

      thank you Angela..your testimony gives me hope,I lost my son in October 2014,some days are better than others however I believe in God’s word that I shall see my son again in heaven I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.Romans 8:18.

      I will keep you in my prayers.. keep me in yours

    These words were very comforting. As most of my family has passed on. It hurts when we lose our christian loved ones. But we are comforted, knowing they are with Jesus. This is the blessed hope Jesus give us, having beat death on the cross.
    Unfortunately, those who decided not to believe or apply His teachings to there lives. Don’t have this hope. Once we pass on the choice has been made. The only confort here, is knowing it’s not to late for yourself. That the choice was thiers alone. We all have that choice.
    Children are gifts from God. They are with God.
    We all have this choice…..John 3:16

    having been through a tragedy in losing my partner, bestfriend, my tempest, my challenger, I feel somewhat cheated of a beautiful life I thought we had. Not knowing that he was suffering and him hiding the fact that he was sick, the aggressive cancer took over within a matter of 5 weeks. what hurts the most is I am strong in faith and I though he was too, but to push me aside and his step kids and grandkids really did the damage. he called his ex-partner back into his life after we had 3 and a half years together, but he still loved me and told me that I will always have his heart, I don’t understand that. I prayed so hard for God to save his life so that he can be a living testimony of his recovery however he was not willing to fight the cancer and gave up so easily. I knew there and then he had no faith, I have been through my ups and downs or the last 3 months as he died 12/4/2017. How cruel for his family not to let me know that he died, to tell me not to go up to the hospital and also to deny me the chance to say good bye, to be ridiculed in front of a community by his family, this is where my heart hurts, I know that my questions will never be answered. I have forgiven and have drawn away from toxic people but my faith in God has not faltered. Reading your testimony leaves me somewhat settled as I still feel him around me, I will never forget all the wonderful times we shared, because I know that God crossed our path for a reason and that was God needed Ali to feel what it was like to have the love of a family, I pray so much for all of you that are going through what I am. When people tell me to move on my response? Tell me how you do that when the one you love so much that it has broken you, you cannot see, touch or kiss, then I will move on.

    This is a lovely story. I’m not sure if it’s true or just a wishful thought that came into the Christian woman’s mind subconsciously. I thought I was a Christian,but my faith has been tested twice in 7 years and now I’m not so sure.
    Seven years ago my youngest son had a high above knee amputation due to a neurofibroma tumour. He nearly died three times. In hospital five months. Came out looking well, and got on with life. In February this year he had an ATV accident while on holiday abroad, he’d ridden these machines before, but this time he ended up with multiple internal injuries from which he did not recover. He could have been fixed if it hadn’t been for a tumour in his pelvis that the drs could not stop bleeding. So much for praying, fasting and believing. God let my son die. He does have favourites. I go to church sometimes, but can no longer sing the praise words as I am full of confusion, hate, anger towards this Being that I believed existed. I feel cheated, conned, and do not sleep well. Is it all psychology to give people hope. My son always believed. But the bible does not say we go straight to heaven, we sleep the sleep of death and only arise when Jesus comes back? I don’t know what to believe anymore.

      The Bible says that when Jesus was on the cross and the thief repented Jesus said to him “Today you will be with me in paradise” This is proof to me that you do not sleep when you die if you are a Christian, you go straight to be with Jesus.
