How many times do we run to the world looking for comfort, truth and answers to our problems instead of running to God who comforts and gives us the right answers.
I ran to the world just recently. My beautiful dog had to be put down. I have had breakdowns in the past and doctors will tell you, you don’t ever fully recover from them, unless it is a miracle of God of course. But here I am at the vets trying to compose myself. After it, I went to the shops to buy cake to help me overcome the grief, which of course didn’t work. Then I turned to God. Long story short I imagine Mindy happy in heaven getting all the love and attention she wanted. I feel so sorry for people who believe once you are dead you are dead forever. Because for one thing it isn’t true. I like so many other people, have had relatives comforting me after their bodies died. It is one of my greatest comforts to know they are alive and far more alive and happy than we are. And that we will meet again.
I chose to stick to my routine as much as possible and I believe that helps, plus constantly believing she is so happy being in the presence of God for a whole eternity. I did get a vision however from God many years ago. I saw her swimming in love. Why I got the vision years ago and not now, I am not certain, but I think it was because God knew that one day I will have to do the brave thing and put her down.
If you have a love one that pass away and you are not sure you will meet again, because of their lifestyle or simply their unbelief in God, I heard two different prophets say after death there is a small window where the person can repent. So that many people who would otherwise not gone to heaven, do. And I remember a story of a saint who didn’t believe this person made it to heaven because of the life style she lived. She was rebuked by the person who had died. She said to the saint I was at hells gate and I repented and God forgave me. So when I past a cemetery I always pray for the dead just in case.
God then gave me a beautiful strong feeling of peace. People were upset for me and so I told one of them about the peace I received. And she thought it was so beautiful, because she knows how precious our pets are to us. So run to God and He does comfort us, but we have to help ourselves also. Choose to be happy for that person or pet. It’s good to have a good cry, it is healthy and helps with the healing.
You think the grief is never going to end. But if you call on God for healing and stay in your routine as much as possible, you will find strength and peace and healing. Remember they at home now and we are still on our journey there. Our beautiful home with Jesus and loves ones are waiting for us.
I really love animals and my own especially. Faith in God will turn things around. Sadness at first and then joy and peace follows, if we really believe in God. God will intervene. The world doesn’t have the answers or the power to do what only God can do. Don’t get me wrong the support we get from one another is so critical. We need each other. God works through us and we can make a difference. But we have to remember we lean on God first and then praise God for the people He sends to help us. It does take time to readjust, especially if it a person we are grieving over. Gods’ love is a consuming fire for each and every one of us. The more we believe the more we see God’s hand in our lives. I am still recovering. It has only been a week ago, but I am recovering with my Saviour in mind. I hope you will too. God will help us if we let Him.
