Jehovah was not in the wind. And after the wind, an earthquake: Jehovah was not in the earthquake.
And after the earthquake, a fire: Jehovah was not in the fire. And after the fire, a soft gentle voice. (1Kings 19:11-12)

"Death is Swallowed up in Victory."

 {I will be quiet here for few days as the Gentle Shepherd called my Grandma to walk the valley of the shadow of death that she would dwell in the house of the Lord forever. 
As the sun was beginning to set on this day, we rejoiced that she was free from suffering when she breathed her last breath on this earth to be with the Lord for all eternity.}

"The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.

He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD

I found much comfort from the words of hope in this song. As I drove home into the setting sun after I was with Grandma as she passed from this life on this earth to life eternal, I praised God that "it is not death to die".

"O Jesus, conquering the grave
Your precious blood has power to save 
Those who trust in You
Will in Your mercy find
That it is not death to die."

 I pray that if you have going through a similar season, God will comfort you with His redeeming love, rich mercy, living hope, and amazing grace.


  1. My prayers are with you and your family, Rebekah. {Hugs}

  2. Sweet, Rebekah, my prayers are with you and family. It sounds like a peaceful passing. I was with my Nana in the hospital when she passed. Peaceful, but so hard. I miss her every day. May God comfort you as you grieve. Blessings.
