I Shall Know Him




I Shall Know Him

My boss said “Can you meet with me, I have someone special that wants to see you?” Well, sure after all, you are the boss --smile.

So my suspense rose. Who could it be? But when I saw them, I knew right away. And I will never forget this special family. They meant so much to me, and none of us will forget that special day when God Himself parted the Heavenly doors.

The daughter smiled, “It’s been almost a year.” The mom piped in, “Since we saw the ‘Joy.’” Their faces lit up with such amazing love and healing. I wondered if this day would ever come.

Watch for the Joy” explains a story of an encounter from a journey Home last year with this family. A day when a piece of Heaven, a piece of Jesus stepped onto the Earth to receive His child. And those around witnessed His miracle.

Today, one year later, this family stands in awe of the miracles that continue to unveil themselves. His wife said to us, “If I had not believed in Jesus before, I sure do now. For when I saw my sweet husband's face aglow and his beautiful smile--when we witnessed the “Joy”, I knew he was seeing Jesus. Our lives have not been the same. We are better for having been where we have been.”

She continued, “We wouldn’t take our loved one back from his place next to Jesus for anything. He’s happy.”

The family presented us with a CD (as they are a talented gifted musical family) named, “I Shall Know Him.” The wife said, “It all makes sense now. For the smile that my husband displayed at his last breath was the moment he saw Jesus. And I have no doubt, he knew Him. “

And the day will come when “I Shall Know Him…” (1John3:2)




7 little hearts from you...:

My friend Nancy sent me here. She and I work together in a Long term care facility and we have witnessed this joy also. What an amazing thing it is to be present with someone as they leave this world to be with their Lord. Thank you for writing these stories down. I'll be back.
PS - the hospice nurse that comes to our facility is also named Connie and the two of you sound quite similar. She brings a lot of joy to us and to those she cares for!

Connie you have once again painted a beautiful picture of Joy in meeting the Lord. As my friend Mari already mentioned we have witnessed this many times but each time it is so special. Thanks for these heartfelt memories.

How precious is the death of the saints....even in their death He is getting the glory.

No as far as the invitation for a jam session....we might have to wait just awhile unless you are planning on playing really REALLY loud. ;)
