Condolences for Mrs. Clarissa Yvette Polk

We would like to offer our sincere condolences to Clarissa's family. Although we didn't have the pleasure of meeting her personally, we do know the pain of losing a loved one in death. What has helped us is meditating on promises such as the one found at Acts 24:15 where we are promised a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous. Until that time, my this hope burn brightly in your hearts and minds.

15. I offer my condolences on the lost of your family member Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends. Please remember that you are never alone. God will be there for you. The family and friends will be there for you with true love, and words of comfort. The scriptures reveal Him as the God of tender mercy and comfort. (2 Corinthians 1:3-4) Yes what God shares with us from the scriptures will bring true blessing to those who are grieving over the lost of a love one. His personal words will even provide true blessings to our departed love ones. Please take note of this one promise that God shares with us. God knows the pain that you are dealing with. Yes you have lost someone who was truly special to you. Each day you think about that person. Yes you have shed many tears because of your personal lost. Those tears that have fallen have not gone unnoticed by God. (Psalm 56:8) He remembers every tear, and has promised to take action to reverse this dying condition of the human family. So from the scriptures He tells us that He would rid the earth of all sicknesses and death . (Revelation 21:3-4) Yes this verse serves as a personal guarantee that our love ones will indeed live. Here is just one such example recorded at (John 11:32-44) He would call to those in the grave, and our departed love ones would stand up in life again.( John 5:28-29) He has taken the time to preserve nine account that speaks about this future blessing from God. All of these things God will do for His earthly family. May I please encourage all to take the time to see how these verses apply to billions of others who will stand up in life again. Yes please draw comfort from this promise from God. Remember that God has given us His personal promise regarding the restoring of life to our love ones. Remember that it is impossible for God to lie. (Titus 1:2)
