For the past 4 weeks, his devoted wife was constantly beside him. The doctors provided little if any hope. She continued to pray and read God’s Word, knowing that her faith was in the Great Physician. He had the power to heal no matter how grim the situation looked in the eyes of the doctors.
As the days... then weeks passed... she continued to hold out for the miracle that she knew could only come from God.
Today, God chose to take him home.
I can’t even begin to imagine the range of emotions that she is feeling right now. Her husband who shared such a huge part of her life, is suddenly gone.
Our prayer has changed now; we pray that God will somehow bring comfort and peace to the family in this time of great loss and overwhelming grief.
Why does God allow this? Why didn’t He intervene? There aren’t any answers that I’m satisfied with, but I do find hope and comfort in scripture.
"And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes;
and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow,
nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain:
for the former things are passed away" (KJV)
