Buried in brokenness.Heart - Broken

I’ve been listening to Rick Warren and his wife speak regarding the loss of their son, Matthew, and how their strong faith is bringing them through. And then the killings at The Navy Pier. And the innocent children at Sandy Hook Elementary.

It can be overwhelming to watch the news at times.

And all of this is a reminder of the grief and pain we’ve suffered because of the ones we’ve lost tragically or to old age.

We miss them and long to see them.

All of pain we have suffered in this life, whether physical, mental or both will be made new.

My daughter, Kate, left this world at the young age of 21 years old because of injuries suffered in a car crash. Listen to this verse:

“Our bodies are buried in brokenness, but they will be raised in glory. They are buried in weakness, but they will be raised in strength.”  1 Corinthians 15:43

And this is our hope in Jesus…

We will be new.

We will be reunited with our loved ones.

We will see His face and live with Him forever in Glory.

Do you know this Savior, Jesus?
