Lenten Devotional- Day 15

Wednesday, March 4


John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.


Family Reunion


Today is my Grandad’s birthday. He died last year of ALS, and I miss him every day. Sometimes it hurts my heart to think about him. Sometimes I am happy for him because he is in heaven with Jesus and God. I am happy that he is no longer in pain. I am happy that he can walk and run and breathe easy. I am happy that he is with my Uncle Jeff.


It’s not easy, knowing that I can’t talk to him anymore like I used to. We liked to look at family pictures together and talk about him growing up. When I was having a hard day, Grandad always would be there to listen and help me make good decisions.


I don’t know if Grandad can hear me or see me. I do know that God loves him very much and loves me very much. I know that because Jesus died on the cross, I will see my Grandad again.  This makes my heart happy.

Prayer: Dear Lord, help me to remember your love for me and all of your children. Help me to remember that your love is so strong that Jesus died for us that we can all be together in heaven. Amen.
