Getting on my feet again.


It's been a rough time the beginning of this year but I'm finding that I'm inproving a bit more after Mum's passing. Still a bit weepy during my devotional time as Mum is still on my prayer list, I still pray for her salvation as God is the same yesterday, today and forever. Maybe He'll backdate my continuing prayer for her? Who knows? I dont think the Bible says I cant (but I'll stand corrected if shown). I hope she accepted the Lord in her heart when I shared the gospel with her a few times when she could not communicate anymore.

But God is good. He has kept me through it all. Praise His Name always.

Thanks again for all who have given me their sympathy and encouragement. I'm hoping the Lord will bless you for it, that's my prayer back for you.

God bless and see y'all in heaven, if not before.

Judgement Day will be interesting.

Hi, yes I understand it's a person's choice before they die. I'm just praying she made the right choice before she passed, that's all. I'm hoping that in her heart during that time she took Christ as her Lord and Saviour as she couldnt communicate in the last few months. Not knowing for sure is hard for me. God bless.

Judgement Day will be interesting.

Hi Urban.

When people close to us pass away it's always hard for us. I never read (in the Bible) that it's illegal to pray for our beloved dead or others.

In all this we have to remember Judgement Day is to come. That means nobody has been judged yet.
Satan is judged by his own deeds. Not by God. At Judgement Day we will get according to what we did - and didn't - do.

Take your time and pray as you need and see fit. I know of people who had a really bad experience as kids; and they were prayed for right into the time and situation when it happened. Many years later. And they were set free.

My God is still almighty and He can - and will - do what He wants. Christians of every denomination have their understandings and ideas of God. But that doesn't change Him; His promises or His word.

Do what you have to do and leave the rest to Him.

Blessings

Hi, anyone who encourages deserves prayer.

I think the worry about her salvation is a part of my grieving process. I had spent so much intense time in prayer for her and helping her while she was alive while not really seeing a response made my concern pretty intense.

Most who commit to the Lord would then begin to come to church and confess Christ as Saviour, problem is mum wasnt able to talk or get around so of course I wont know till I enter heaven myself if she's truly saved.

I'm just going to have to leave it to the Lord instead of stressing about it, she is accountable for her own decisions I know, it's just that I have been so emotional I guess I wasnt really thinking straight and handling it well.

She had been on my heart for many years and I guess the stresses and concern for her salvation culminated in me at her death.

Thanks again for your support.

God bless

Judgement Day will be interesting.

I think you've summed it up by saying "Do what you need to do and leave the rest to Him."

Thanks for your comment and thoughts, it's appreciated.
