It was so very sad to hear that a Navy Seal Officer was killed while training. My prayers go out to his family.
I have been there. I have lost several dear people in my life. My mother and father have passed. One of my brother-in-laws has passed. A friend, who was a groomsman at my wedding has passed.
I lost four students I had while teaching. I was very close to each of them. One was a suicide, which struck my heart even more.
We may ask why God has taken them away from us. I can’t give you a good answer except that God is in charge, and He chooses when we go to meet him in heaven. The loss is hard, at best, to accept, but we must carry on in this earth. We are only here a short time compared to the eternity we will be living in heaven.
Be strong. Stay the course and enjoy each day God has given you. You will see all those you lost again in heaven.
Never be angry at God for His choices. Praise Him; love Him: and obey Him. He loves you more than you can ever know.
You are never alone.
You are never forsaken.
You are never unloved.
And above all…never, ever, give up!
