Our Creator has given us a future promise of never having to grieve the loss of a loved one in the near future. That promise is found at Isaiah 25:8a; “He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.” What a glorious day this will be! May this promise give you comfort and peace now.
