Today’s Daily Post asks about when I have felt helpless and what I did about it.
This one is going to be rough, and I will apologize now.
My grandmother was diagnosed with cancer quite some time ago.
She passed away in March of 2009. The months leading up to and including March, seemed so long (and seem so long ago) as she was in and out of the hospital. I felt helpless because there wasn’t much I could to make things better for her or my grandfather. I dealt with my own feelings of helplessness, the only way I knew how, mainly keeping to myself, or reading passages out of the bible.
When she did pass away, there was one bible verse that helped me through my helplessness was this:
“The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will his peoples. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be
no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” (Rev 21:1)
The paradise promised by God in the Bible, where there is no more death, pain, or sickness. Not to mention that we have a chance to see our loved ones again.
If it wasn’t for that promise, I don’t know that I would have made it through.
I still find myself missing her, and talking to her. It has been a long time since I have dreamt about her.
