The finish line in sight


Second post from John, writing the day before his wife died.  Deeply moving.

L is resting more comfortably.  She’s quiet, no longer speaking. The finish line is in sight and she’s fading from this life, preparing for the next.  Her heavenly Father is standing at the finish line with open arms, the Holy Spirit is filling her with courage and the heart to complete the race well, Jesus is holding her hand leading her on cheering, “I am with you always.”  He’s looking over His shoulder and has assured me that “I am with you always too!”  There’s a comfort in my soul knowing He alone can heal my wounded heart and be the joy, love and courage I need for this last season of the race.  The world feels like it is shaking and shifting.  Be still my soul, take courage – your heart is anchored in the holy of holies in the presence of the Father, held safe and sure by Jesus.
