Life is Fragile. But Hope in Christ Lasts Forever.
The Bible calls human life a vapor. A mist. A wisp of fog. A flower that springs up in the morning and fades away by mid-afternoon. We like to think we have years to pursue our goals, raise our families and make a difference in the world. But we just don't know. The fact is, our stay on earth is really very brief. And when a loved one unexpectedly steps out of this life into eternity, it shakes us to the core. We ask ourselves: Is heaven real? Will I see him ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´å will I see her ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´å again? Will we be together again? How can I know for sure?
Pastor Greg Laurie crafted many of the devotionals in this book after the sudden departure of his son Christopher to heaven. Each day offers comfort to bruised hearts, perspective in times of confusion and pain ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´å and a hope that will sustain us through this life and beyond.
