“Do not let your hearts be troubled.  Have faith in God and have faith in me.  In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places; otherwise how could I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?  I am indeed going to prepare a place for you, and then I shall come back to take you with me that where I am you may also be.”  John 14:1-3

I sat alone in the small propjet that would take me to my mom’s house.  I had only learned ½ hour earlier that my dad had passed away, and my mind was a blur.  I was thankful for the roaring engine, which drowned out my sobs and my prayers to the Lord.  I began flipping through my Bible, writing scriptures that could be read at the funeral.  The Lord lead me blindly to many wonderful words which gave me comfort.  One in particular was John 14:1-3:  “Do not let your hearts be troubled . . .”

I arrived at my mom’s house at midnight and soon after went to sleep for the night in my father’s bed.  When I awoke the next morning I saw on my dad’s nightstand his daily devotional.  I opened to the page he had marked and read the words, “Do not let your hearts be troubled, have faith in God and have faith in me . . .”  In my darkest despair the Lord reminded me that He was with me, and my father was with Him.
