This post is written by Martie Spurgeon, gifted writer and mother of 6. Her daughter Ally died of SIDS on December 13, 1997. Be blessed by Martie's hope-filled and encouraging words, birthed out of her own grieved-yet healing- heart.
Psalm 116:15 – “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.”
How different are our views of death compared to God’s thoughts on the subject. To us, death of a loved one is something that is dreaded, feared and we are left many questions of how their death could have been avoided or prevented. This is especially true when it was one of our dear little children. How deep the pain! How comforting to know that God views death in a completely different way.
