Though I know that this is a difficult time for you, my hope is that you will be comforted from God's inspired word the Bible. John 5:28,29 and Revelation 21: 3,4 gives hope of a future resurrection and the complete elimination of death, pain and mourning. Under Jesus' kingdom rule we have this and much more to look forward to. Please accept my deepest condolences. For more scriptural encouragement please go to www.jw.org.

(2 Corinthians 4:18) "while we keep our eyes, not on the things seen, but on the things unseen. For the things seen are temporary, but the things unseen are everlasting." KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE PRIZE 1. When eyes of blind ones see again And ears of deaf ones hear again, When deserts blossom as the rose And from parched ground fresh water flows, When lame ones leap just like the hart, When loved ones never have to part, Such blessed times you’ll realize, If you keep your eyes on the prize. 2. When tongues of mute ones speak again, When old ones will be young again, When earth will yield her rich increase And all good things will never cease, When songs of children fill the air, When joy and peace are ev’rywhere, Then, too, you’ll see the dead arise, If you keep your eyes on the prize. 3. When wolves and lambs will feed as one, When bears and calves bask in the sun, A mere young boy will lead them all, And they will heed his childish call. When tears belong to yesterday, When fears and pain have passed away, You’ll see how God these things supplies, If you keep your eyes on the prize.

I was devastated to read of the untimely death of little Brayden. Life seems so unfair to lose someone so young. I know the memories you made together in his 3 way too short years of precious life will get you through many lonely days ahead. May the Zubke family look back with fondness and find comfort in your precious memories of Brayden and find a measure of peace in God's Word. Rev. 21: 4; tells us: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore."(Isaiah 25:8, Isaiah 33:24, Job 14: 14, 15) For more comforting scriptures please visit: http://bit.ly/1K38EFt. It has given me hope, strengthened my faith and helped me find the answer to Why? I know it will do the same for you. God's kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for at Matt. 6: 9, 10 will bring about these wonderful promises including the resurrection. (John 5: 28 John 6: 40) Again, I offer my sincere condolences to the family. Feel free to contact me at my email address: myranj@centurytel.net

My sincere sympathy to the family and friends on the passing of your dear loved one little Brayden. True comfort comes in knowing that God does not cause our death, Hebrews 2 : 14 tells us the source of death. May you be comforted in knowing that God ( Psalm 83 : 18 ) hates death and promises to eliminate death forever and bring the dead back to life on a cleansed earth. ( Isaiah 25 : 7,8; Revelation 21 : 3-5; Acts 24 : 15; Psalms 37 : 11, 34 ) Also, may your own good and loving memories of little Brayden help to soothe your hearts. Sincerely

Ginger Sep 14 2016 12:00 AM
