The best promise of all while grieving is the promise of life in Christ

Notes & Transcripts
Friends have hugged you.
The past has been recreated.
Next there is joy.
Joy that you had this woman as mother, grandma or friend.
But like all feelings…
The feelings will fade.
In the midst of all these emotions allow me to speak a word from God.
A word to speak not merely to you aching heart but to your mind and your spirit as well.

Never Leave us...
In the midst of our pain, God has promises for us.
Providentially Lead us.
To Love us.
Romans 8:10–11 ESV
10 But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.
Explain: Today let me encourage you with two certainties that come from Christ in you.
