When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.
Isaiah 43:2

Sometimes I still feel like I'm in a dream and one day I'll just wake up.  Then, all the bad things will just disappear.   I'll rub my eyes, sit up on the side of the bed and be thankful the nightmare is over.  

In some way, that is true.  One day, we'll wake up from this existence (that can feel like a nightmare sometimes)  and be on the other side with Jesus.  The pain...the suffering...the grief...loss...disappointment will all be over.  

"He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever."
Revelation 21:4

I can't explain why bad things happen to good people and all those other questions that deal with God and human suffering.  I don't have all the answers. 

Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.
1 Corinthians 13:12 

I can only take comfort in knowing that HE is with our grieving hearts and gives us peace and comfort that is indescribable.  

I love and miss you little brother!!!!
