Several members of my immediate family are already in heaven – my father, my mother, my oldest brother and my step-father. With tears streaming down my face, I read Isaiah 57 as he tells us why the righteous die:
Those left behind don’t understand that the righteous are taken out of this world so they don’t have to experience the ‘evils’ here any longer.
They go to a place of rest. We call it ‘death’, but God calls it peace.
Thank you, dear Father.
