Death Gives Way to Victory

My dear friend's mother has passed away this morning, one that was loving known by our church as Nana. Though as I talked with my friend something more than her grief struck me. It was her desire to see her family come to know Christ through this death. She did not tell me how much she was going to miss this precious lady in her life or how she didn't know how she would go on without this woman in her life but instead she wanted prayer that her family would come to know our big, GREAT God. I was so encouraged by her hope and today my prayer is that if the Lord desires, that her family would come to know this BIG God we serve. That even today, as they are facing this world without a mother, sister, grandmother, friend that they would feel the comfort that only our Savior can give. I also pray for my friend as she is entering into a battlefield with her family, that she will continue to be strong and to be a light to them. I know that God is capable of mighty, mighty things and I pray that we will see God complete another miracle in this family!
