What's Wrong With Being "Truly Spiritual" - A means to comfort

I often ask myself - what is wrong with being "truly spiritual."   I hear so often how everyone is a "Christian" but when you truly start demonstrating the knowledge and courage to speak those things that Jesus Christ spoke - it is often ensue with a negative reaction.   I have deep emotions and compassion for everyone that experience some kind of pain or suffering and I also respect and acknowledge we all respond differently. 

It is so refreshing to be able to have a truly spiritual…

Truly celebrating "Life"

As we know, the time to appreciate life or someone's life should not be at death.  While we are alive we need to celebrate "our life" which means to be thankful that we are here and to love all those around us who will one day pass away to death.  Let's love them now and tell them all of the loving thoughts we have of them (1 John 4:8).

Truly celebrating life is to treasure it now...for the dead is conscious of "nothing."  So while we are here and in the now - love as you never loved…

The Resurrection - A Hope For All Mankind!

Death is not the original purpose for mankind.  God's purpose was to have mankind to live under perfect conditions in Paradise.  The pain and suffering we experience with the lost of our love one does not originate with God's plan in the beginning.

However, due to mankind disobedience we now sin, grow old and die.  These conditions will also change - as there will be a resurrection of all those in the memorial tomb (John 5:28, 29).   We all have the opportunity to gain knowledge and…

Death is not in itself - the end

Death to some is the finality of one's life.  However, the Bible holds firm a hope of restoring earth and mankind back to God's original purpose.  The Dead, are not suffering but is as in a deep-sleep. (Eccl. 9:5).  No harm comes to the dead.  We do have fond memories of our love ones.  The memories are with us to cherish. 

 

That is why it is so important to let the "living" know how you feel about them - do not let death come upon them - and then you remember all of the…

The Dead have a hope!!

As we know, often when our love ones die - we wonder -= what's next.  However, we have been given a promise that in the very near future death will be no more (Revelation 21:3,4)  We need not feel a sorrow that is linked with so many questions.  Our love one are not under any circumstances - lingering between Heaven and Hell.   (Ecclesiastes 9:5)

How I deal with my sorrow is to cherish the loving memories I have of the departed love one. I know my love one is in a deep sleep - free…

What it takes to be a Caregiver

To be a Caregiver it takes a lot of LOVE. Without love, it is practically impossible to care in that capacity. Your life as you know it will change. Your needs will become 2nd to none. Your major concern will be that of your love one. You however, do not even consider the time, energy and money that must be extended to the one we truly love in order for them to be comfortable and to feel loved.



Love is what will substain one during the most challenging time in their life. - 1 Timothy… Continue

Find comfort in God - The Master of all Comforts

The lost of a love one can bring about so much emotional stress and confusion that at that moment we are at a  lost for words.  Emotionally, we are totally drained.  Jesus comforted those in mourning all of the time during his ministry.  (1 Thessalonians 5:11)   During Jesus entire ministry, he lovingly comforted mourning ones, bringing them encouragement and peace of minds. 

Death is nothing to fear - once we cease to exist we are in a deep sleep (Eccl. 9:5)  The Bible give us so…

Death - Peaceful Confirmation

Death - what is it?  Why do we die?  Why do we grow old? 

God has a plan for all of us.  At death - we cease to exist - however, we are in the memory of our Heavenly Father. (John 5:28,29)  God original plan for mankind was to live forever, however, due to man going against God - we are improverish with all of the ailment that befit an imperfect being.  The comfort comes from knowing that once we die it is as if we are in a deep sleep - free of any kind of emotional or physical pain.…
