“Whoever…believes in me will never die.” John 11:26
Tired from vacation they stumbled in the door,
Ready to sleep and nothing more.
It wasn’t till day two of being back,
Did Squirmles realize Jericho their fish they lacked.
There on the counter was his tank,
Empty and clear, her heart sank.
“Where’s Jericho she asked her mom?”
“I’m sorry sweetie, he was already gone.
“He lived a good life, but passed while we were away,
But the good news is there is more to say.
You may never see Jericho again, this I don’t know,
But I tell you where those who love God go.
“God made a promise a long time ago,
That those who love him, to heaven they’ll go.
Reunited with family and friends,
For those who love Jesus, life never ends.
I know it’s hard to understand,
But trust in God and his plan.
He sent his son to save those who believe,
So when a follower dies there’s no need to grieve.
It may sound too good to be true,
But this is God’s plan for me and for you.
It’s not just something to make you feel better,
It’s the truth written in God’s love letter.
Have you ever lost someone or something close to you? How did it make you feel?
