Luke 1:45 Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill His promises to her.
Ryguy, I know one thing for sure. God promised NOT to leave me nor forsake me. He also promised I would not be alone when trials of this world towered over me. & my oh my, I would definitely say that the trial of your passing has towered over me.
Your death could have meant one of two things for me. 1. Living in complete and utter darkness. 2. Allowing the Son to brighten my path and my heart. It was up to me which path I would take. My choice.
It was as if I was standing at a fork in the road. The road signs read, “<—darkness/despair —-> light/peace”. When looking at the different roads in such openness, it is easy to chose the right path. However, what happens when the road names change? What if instead of darkness it read…revenge? Instead of despair…vengeance? Would it have been just as easy to turn down the other path?
It’s amazing what allowing God to direct my path has done for me. Because when He is directing my steps, I do not have to wonder if I’m making the right choices. That morning of such chaos and heartbreak…that was the only time since you’ve passed that I have ever questioned God in all this. Why? Simple. I don’t need to question the One who only wants good things for me. He did not do this TO me. He did this FOR you. & oh my what a difference that makes.
I cannot explain the peace that overtakes my soul when I speak of you, when I think of you. It’s just there. Phillipians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
I am blessed because I know my God works for me. Loves me. Wants good for me. & I will trust in that & walk in that for the rest of my days.
I love you, Ryguy and I will always miss you until we meet again. 💚
