“Death Was Not The Plan –
Death was not part of God’s original idea for human existence. The reason death seems so wrong and unnatural is because it is wrong and unnatural! Life was only meant to give way to life all the way into eternity.
It’s not okay that people die. It’s not okay that cancer and old age claim thousands of lives a day. It’s not okay that mothers have miscarriages and that babies are born still. We’ve become accustomed to death, but it was never God’s created intent.
It’s right for you to grieve death, and as you grieve, let it flow beyond the specific death of that loved one. Your soul should cry out for the complete restoration of what life was designed to be in the beginning, and what it will be in eternity. “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:4)”
