I want everyone to take heart. This afternoon Sarah slipped away through the great divide that separates our world from God’s
kingdom in Heaven. Sarah loved the Lord more
than anyone I have ever known. And she loved everything about the life that God entrusted
her with. A few weeks ago when Sarah was whispering to me she said the following while
gesturing about the immediate world around her, “It’s more than about this. It’s
not just about this.” When I asked her what she meant she said, “Life was
not just about this physical body, and the physical world in which we live.” Sarah
and I both believe this with all of our hearts. My children believe it too and know
they can one day see her again in Heaven….but - only by putting their faith and
trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. Please read on:
9that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised
Him from the dead, you will be saved;
with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.
For the Scripture says, "WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED."
11. With respect to the promise of God, she did not waver in unbelief but grew strong in faith, giving glory to God
4And He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and
there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed
He who sits on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all things new " And He said, "Write, for these words are faithful and
He said to me, "It is done I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end I will give to the one who thirsts from
the spring of the water of life without cost.
7"She who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be her God and she will be My daughter.
God has definitely been glorified through
Sarah’s life and even in her death. I want you to know that she never wavered
in her love and devotion for her family, and especially for God!

2 Corinthians 4:7
7But we have this treasure
in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves.
