And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you. —John 16:22
We have seen the lives of loved ones–and maybe our own–figuratively burned to the ground and have wondered why a loving and caring Heavenly Father would allow such things to happen. But He does not leave us in the ashes; He stands with open arms, eagerly inviting us to come to Him. He is building our lives into magnificent temples where His Spirit can dwell eternally. —Linda S. Reeves
