Update on Family

Sunday, January 06, 2013

I told you about my niece dying on the day of my brothers funeral. The doctors said all the drugs in her system caused her to have a heart attack and that was what killed her. She will have her funeral Wednesday of next week.

I also got some news that made me cry with joy and relief. The minister that did my brothers service spoke with my sister. Apparently, the day before he was taken to the hospital, he had his wife to call the minister to the house to pray for him. While there the preacher talked to James about believing in Christ as his savior and read the salvation message from the scriptures. He said James did belief and accept the LORD JESUS CHRIST as his Savior. He told my sister that James and my granny would be waiting for us to meet them in heaven some day. I cried when my sister told me about it. I was devastated to think he had died without CHRIST. Joy cometh in the morning, it surely does. My niece however wasn't saved when she passed away. My sister had talked to her about salvation just a week ago. My niece said she figured she could wait to the last minute and be save. It didn't happen. We will never see her again. That is heart breaking for us. I do thank my GOD for that wonderful news of my brother's salvation. Thanks to everyone who gave condolences, comfort, cyber flowers and other kind sparkgoodies. You warm kindness is such a comfort and blessing. I am so glad to have you all as Spark Family.

    I am a firm believer that God works with us even after we die, if we are worthy of it. I bet she had the chance to see the true light, and does believe. Don't count her out as far as never seeing her again. That's great James came around. He died with true peace. Hope you and your family are doing ok. That is a lot to deal with at one time. emoticon

    So glad that your brother found faith and belief before his death. I am so glad that he was approached by a loving minister and accepted the Lord into his life. I pray that your niece also saw the light before she passed; I am sure she was given the opportunity by a loving and forgiving Lord. emoticon

    Never give up hope! You dont know what happen just before she died. She could have called out to him. Jesus is ever so present every where, you just cant give the enemy of your soul any doubt (then he wins) , so please dont doubt what G*d can do a second before one dies! But pray that she did recieve Jesus! Please read John 17 again and again. I saw in that verse that "no one is lost but Satan!" I cant believe G*d would allow any human being be lost...unless they outright knew what they did not know! I cant believe in anyone being lost who was exposed to Jesus in any way. You never know as a child that your niece could "have" given her heart to Jesus as a child.... if so she still belongs to G*D no matter what! G*d never goes back on his word even when we sin! Prayers being said for her soul! May G*d comfort you in his word, (John 17) . Because the real interpreter of his own words is G*D! susana
