Hello everyone! Hope everyone is safe and healthy!
Today, I would like to share with you something that many believe to be true. Most of the times, we see it as sad but there are times when it should be seen as joy and peace.
First of all, we know that when we lose a loved one, it is difficult. The reason why it is so difficult and emotional is because we will miss them so much. Just remember that there will come a day when we will be able to be with them again.
One day, I was talking to a friend of mine. She was crying because she just lost her mother. Another friend and I were trying to comfort her. After about an hour, her phone rang. It was her brother. (Or so she thought.)
When she answered the call, it was a nurse from a hospital, half way between her brother's town and her town. There had been a bad car accident and her brother was on life support. He was driving to her place, to make arrangements for the funeral.
That was one of the worst days in her life. As we said a prayer for her, they turned off the machine. Then, the other friend said something to her which I thought was not necessary for her to hear. "You know, it usually happens in threes. I'm just saying."
We all know this phrase as a popular one. I have heard many people say it and I have used it in the past. Mine was something different. It was losing a child, then losing assistance and then losing my apartment. Sometimes, we look for bad things to happen without even realizing it. We forget that if we just put our faith in God, He will help us through anything. We like to blame others for what happened, but sometimes we just need to ask for God's help and He will take care of us.
Now, I would like to share with you something else that comes in threes. Well, it is three things, united into one. Can you guess what it is? This is the time when it should be seen as joy, peace and a whole bunch of love!
It is... The Father...The Son... and The Holy Spirit! The most important thing to happen in your life!
I hope you enjoyed this story. When I lose a loved one, I used to cry and suffer through the loss. As it was time for my own mother to go home to God, I thanked him for not allowing her to lay there and suffer. I was fine with that loss because I knew, someday, I will see her again. Instead of getting upset, I learned to be happy for her as she lives with Jesus.
Take care & God Bless
