There are no human words that can be said to ease your pain and suffering, only the words of the Lord can provide this comfort as he promises that he will never leave or abandon you.
Hanging on the wall of our nurse’s station are two beautiful quotes. “Never miss the opportunity to say a kind word" and "Tough times do not last but tough teams do.” In medicine, we are faced with many situations that can challenge our faith, especially when we see untimely death. None of us can explain why this happened. What strengthens my resolve and gives me the resiliency to continue is I know that “baby boy” is in the arms of Jesus Christ. That, I am sure of. This gives me peace.
We are all on this earth for a blink of an eye when we consider an eternity in heaven. Some of our blinks are a little longer than others. So please make it a great blink and hold no anger, resentment, unlove, or unforgiveness. For in the end, we will all be in paradise.
You are not alone. You have a community of believers that are your brothers and sisters in Christ. It is our responsibility to be beacons of light and hope for you. "And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God" (Romans 8:28). What touches my heart is the Holy Spirit is already at work…
So let us rejoice that we have come together as a faith community to assist in your time of need through food, prayer, and fellowship. Let us give thanks and praise for your courage to attend the chaplain lead critical incident stress debrief to grief and heal together. This speaks volumes and by doing so, we give Glory to God, baby boy, and our community. In his 6 weeks of life, a baby boy has moved a community to Unite all in Love for God is Love.
When doubt, fear, or anger enter our mind, draw on scripture: “For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you (Isaiah 41:13)."
Let us all hold the hand of God! When we recognize how close God is to us, we will never feel lonely again.
Step 2: Breathe In and Breathe out slowly: calms your mind, relaxes your body and renews your spirit. Gives time for the Holy Spirit to guide your thoughts, words, and actions. Disengage from the situation when appropriate. “Jesus, I trust you.”
Step 3: Love: wrap you and the person(s) or situation in the white light of love, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, and peace. Pray for those who persecute you. “Jesus I love you.”
As Jesus is all and in all, we have been given the mandate to love one another.
Jesus Christ is the game changer…Jesus, I need you, trust you and love you.
Unite all in Love for God is Love!
