“Encouraging Words”

This week’s Pastor to Person is written by Pastor Franklin Garcia.

1Th.4:13-18…Therefore encourage one another with these words.

We are going to see our loved ones again and will be reunited with them, whether we stay or go first to the Lord, this is a promise from Him.

I don’t know if you have lost a loved one, someone you love dearly. If you have, can you recall the times that you had a dream of them? I remember dreaming about my dad during the first months after he went home to the Lord. I used to wake up happy with tears in my eyes, because my dreams seemed so real. Hugging my dad and sharing with him was something that I cannot explain. I hated waking up from those dreams. One day it will not be a dream anymore. One day we don’t have to worry about waking up from our dream, because it will not be a dream anymore; it will be real.

The Lord’s promises should encourage us in our grieving and should be shared to help others in their grieving! This is some good news of hope, but nobody keeps good news to themselves, good news is to be shared. We must share this news of hope with others who think that they won’t see their loved ones again. We must encourage each other with the fact that we all are going to be reunited again, these words are to be share in order to comfort those who are grieving the loss of a loved one.
