Yes, please continue to have Faith.
Love and Faith never die, and never fade.
When you leave your life in God's hands, you need not worry about destiny. He will do what needs to be done.
Many people have been cured by their love and Faith in God. And many others have not, but because of their love and faith in God, they knew they were in the best hands possible...even if it meant that it was time to go....they knew they would go into God's arms.
Are there better hands to leave one's life in, than God's hands?
We are all born to one day go into eternal life. There is no exception...we all will one day or another.
A blessing before this passage is being able to say to the ones we love, "I love you", and "I'm sorry", and "I admire you" and "Thank you"..."I forgive you", and many more love sentences.
There are people who don't get this chance, they go suddenly - in an accident, or other instant, non-expected unfortunate events.
Yes, a blessing is to have the time to know when this time is...and be able to live the love needed.
The best thing we can leave a child of ours is: love, guidance to a wonderful and happy life, teach forgiveness, compassion and wisdom. To teach a child the priorities of life, is to give him/her a happy future.
Material things can be gone from night to day...but love never fades and never dies.
My mother and my sister had cancer. They also had several months to live the love they needed to live, and wanted to live.
Those last months of their lives was a blessing because they knew the true meaning of life and love.
Yes, we all prayed and had Faith that they would get better and be able to live many more years...but God thought it was best that He take them. So they went into God's arms...to where we will all go...someday, sometime.
Michael, don't lose hope and faith...and leave your life in God's hands. We will never understand the 'why's' of God's decisions...but if we have Faith, we know He will be there to hug us on this passage.
If we get healed and live more years on this earth, we cannot forget the true meaning of life and love and give thanks.
Everyone, before leaving their house in the morning, when waking up in the morning, should give thanks for another day and make that day shine with love and forgiveness...that is what will make us happy, no matter what happens around us. Because we never will know, when this day will come.
But like I said, those who do know this day, have the blessing of being able to live until then, in love, thanks and forgivenss.
God bless you my friend, every second of your life.
You are in my prayers as well.
