I Will See You In Paradise

Life's Journey

A brother of a dear friend of mine passed away recently. He was only 12 years old. He was born with cerebral palsy and could not do the things normal children could do. However, what he lacked in physical mobility, he more than made up for it with sheer determination and guts. The boy's name is Jeremy Koo.

Everyday was a struggle for him. A struggle to breathe properly, a struggle to eat the food which was given to him, a struggle to live. Things we normally take for granted were a huge challenge for little Jeremy. But overcome them he did. Every single day for 12 plus years.

We sometimes wonder, why does God allow such things to happen? How could He let an innocent boy go through so much pain? It is in times like this however, that you can hear God saying....

"Be still and know that I am God"

Isaiah 55: 8-9 says...

"For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts"

True isn't it? While we may not always understand the things around us, or understand what God is doing, we should always, always trust in Him. For all things. At all times.

Otherwise everything would be meaningless - and our lives merely a diaphonous, futile existence.

Amen. I think that say's it well. besides when do we descide that our desires to be with someone overshadow Gods. You know that Jeremy is really home now. Home with the Father and I think that God really wanted Jeremay closer to him. After all:

Psa 68:20 He that is our God is the God of salvation; and unto GOD the Lord belong the issues from death.

The word issues in this verse refers to deliverance.

So from the flesh was Jeremy delivered. Take Joy knowing that you shall see him again perfected and whole. And Happy.
