ìA heart broken and crushed spirit, O God, you will not reject.î (Psalm 51:17b) Iím sorry for your loss; may God provide you and your family with peace and comfort during this difficult time. The Bible shares a wonderful resurrection hope for future. I pray that you find comfort in the wonderful promises of John 5:28, 29 and Acts 24:15.
