Death not always loss

Death is not always a time of loss it should be a time to remind us we are alive and to do something with that! Take time to mourn, yet also as important, take time to live. There was a sister who was mourning her brother waiting on Jesus to come, she was caught up in her loss when she inquired of Jesus, if He had been there when they asked for Him, her brother would not have died. There was a reason Jesus did not come right away, He reminded her of her faith and encouraged her to live with these words. Your brother will rise again, amazing huh? Jesus reminded her that He was the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this? Her answer was a resounding yes, she had lost her brother and it was good to mourn but it is as important to live if you have hope, find that hope in Jesus today!! John 11:1-27
