Praying for the family, keep the faith. from Rev Lewis Devlin

We are truly Sadden to learn of the death of your loved one. As Numbers 23:19 reminds us - "God is not a mere man who tells lies, nor a son of man who changes his mind. When he says something, will he not do it? When he speaks, will he not carry it out?" Everything God has promised will come true, and he has promised that soon now, He will "swallow up death forever."(Isaiah 25:8.) Although your grief is heavy now, by means of the resurrection (John 5:28, 29) you will gain joy again!! My deepest sympathy to the family.
