That is why is so difficult learning that each day that passes by and millions of innocents lives are taken away. No one knows or can even understand why God allows our children to be killed, murdered or taken away. No one knows why he allows these criminals or murderers to destroy or wreak peoples lives. Only he with his perfect grand plan can understand his reasons or why he allows this to happen. That is why am encouraging each brother ,sister , mother , father, Pastor or Priest, today to embrace your love ones, hug your children, love each other and put your bitterness or hate behind you. I am also advising each of us to stop arguing, fussing or fighting with their children, family members or spouses, because its wasted energy. No one wants to live life with regrets, wishing that they had used that time or opportunity just to say that you love or forgive them.
This reminds me of something my mother used to always preach to me when she would say, Family is all we got! When the world is against you family, is all you can count on and we should always be together. My mother wanted us all to remain close, no matter what was happening in our own world or the world around us. After getting a text message early one morning from a friend of mine telling me, about hers sons death, my heart went out to her, because of her grief and I now can understand why. He was only 26, with 3 children (2 boys &1 girl) and his life was laid out before him. He was just learning how to be a responsible father and was ready to change his life for the better. He had great plans for his children, family and his mother. But just like so many, he was murdered, killed and then taken away too soon. Our babies, children and young adults, are being killed at an alarming rate and none of us no matter where we come from can afford to take this fact for granted. When our love ones dies, are killed or taken away from us, none of us can get them back. But what we all could do, while we mourn them, to is live and honor their memories, by becoming better people then become more active in our communities. We should all be mindful that the people we love today could be here today, then gone tomorrow and Gone To Soon.
Psalm 49:15 But God will redeem my life from the grave; he will surely take me to himself. Selah
Isaiah 25:8 he will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign LORD will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove the disgrace of his people from all the earth. The LORD has spoken.
Isaiah 26:19 But your dead will live; their bodies will rise. You who dwell in the dust, wake up and shout for joy. Your dew is like the dew of the morning; the earth will give birth to her dead.
