God says - I - redeemed you, I - did this, or I - did that. Hee Hee.

Every time I come across the word ‘I’ in the Bible now, I will be hearing J.D’s booming voice. Hee Hee.
Thanks for the study. I enjoyed it.

This was one my dad needed to listen to. I wish he could have had the opportunity.

Dear Brother Jon, somehow I can feel the pain and longing. . . The great sadness behind this one sentence. Makes my heart cry for you. It sounds as though your father has gone from you . . . And if so, I can only offer this . . . Our God, who is love. . . Our dear Good Shepherd who left the 99 in search of the one lost one. . . Our Creator who counts the very hairs upon our heads . . . He who loves us beyond measure and knows our every wound and need . . I pray to Our God, that your father indeed heard just what he needed to hear and believe, even if only in the very end of his moments . . . ??? May this thought bring you some comfort. . . And if I’ve misunderstood the story behind your words, forgive me. . . :pray:t3::blue_heart:

Thank ya @SongSparrow Brenda. Yeah, my dad passed away last year on Dec. 16. For the longest time he believed God couldn’t forgive him of the things he had done in his life and during a 15 minute trip to the VA, I threw down the ABC’s to him and he was rather silent for most of the trip. He accepted Christ did forgive him, according to what my mom explained to me when she picked him up from the VA that day. So, I can only presume his last breath on earth was his first in Heaven. I say it that way because I didn’t get to see him for over a month and a half as he was in hospice and because of the Covid, they wouldn’t let me or my mom in to see him. The last time I DID finally get to see him, he was put under and sleeping. 2 am the next morning, we got a call he had passed.

He was hard to get along with, he was stubborn and never admitted he was wrong, and if he did, you expected the trumpet to sound for the rapture. The end was here! But he was the only dad my Heavenly Father gave me and I still miss him. Remembering that one early morning conversation when I saw this sermon just resonated so hard in my heart and mind. It would have answered him far better than I did or ever could.

I’m sorry, Jon. Sorry that you weren’t able to be with your dad during his last days. This was definitely a cruel consequence of these covid restrictions. Heartbreaking. Actually makes me so very angry!! My first husband’s mom passed away, locked away in a nursing home on the 13th of December last. One of the things that soothes my heart a bit was that she let me pray with her to just give her heart to Jesus shortly before she died, and I’m sure that the Lord didn’t let her die alone! Your dad sounds like he was a lot like mine. My dad passed away in 2012. I’m glad you were able to speak with your dad, and I’ve know doubt that your prayers for him, and God’s great love, helped him to find his way home.
