Wednesday Word

Hello, WBFJ friends! It’s always a blessing to be able to share a quick word with you. As some of you know, my mom passed away on Thanksgiving Day. Although the grief, the hurt,  and the sense of loss is still fresh in my heart as we approach the Christmas season, God has certainly used her death to affirm my faith and the hope that I have in Jesus Christ. Rather than focus on the cancer that ate away at my mom’s physical being, I’d rather focus on my mom’s unwavering faith. A faith that sustained her for over 77 years and gave her an amazing combination of contentment and strength. During most of mom’s life, she never let anything “eat away” at her. I would often joke that the Fruit of the Spirit was always ripe in my mother’s heart. In the final days of her life, as death crept upon her like a dark shadow, the light of her spirit still showed through. During that time, heaven became more real to me than it ever has before. In our final moments of life on this earth, our faith is all we have. We won’t spend our final moments clinging to a shiny car or a diamond ring. We might not even have the strength to hold our daughter’s hand. It’s our faith in Jesus that we cling to and the promise of eternal life. That promise was born in a manger on Christmas Day. It’s why we celebrate this season. It’s the greatest gift we could ever receive and it’s the only thing we take with us into eternity. As Christians, that’s a truth we can cling to every day of our life and it’s a hope we can share with others this Christmas season…

Your friend,

Lana
