You are Invited

But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you. John 16:7

Today you are invited to consider how you feel when you have to say goodbye to a dear friend or family member, knowing you will not see them often again, if ever on this earth. How does Jesus help you in such circumstances? Are you aware of the presence of the Holy Spirit at such times of grief or struggle? He is ready to be with you at all times – ask Him to show you how He is present and how He will be with you at this moment and in your future. Ask Him to keep you connected to your loved one, spirit to spirit, and to help you to keep your relationship strong although you are separated by distance (or even by life and death).

May God bless you with His comforting presence through His Holy Spirit whenever you are sad or lonely.

About Mandy Hackland

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I have moved to the coast and am enjoying the green spaces and beautiful vistas that surround me, reminding me of God's grace every day.
