We all lose a loved one in death in life, and dealing with that grief is hard to endure at times. But we do have hope from God's Word the Bible here at:(Isaiah 25:8)"And he will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away tears from all faces." This loving prophecy tells us that one day we will no longer have to worry about dying and we will see our loved ones brought back to life right before our very eyes! Unbelievable Right? So what can you do to see this take place? The answer is to seek Jehovah God and draw close to him and you will see his promises unfold.....
