    May Kelsey Paige Parks RIP, what a sweet-heart, I’m so sorry, pain in my heart=empathy. I know I could never fully understand this pain, but please be reassured that your heart can mend and be made whole again. Jesus’ whole-hearted concern for the weak was the same as his Father’s feelings “Likewise it is not a desirable thing with my Father who is in Heaven for one of these little one’s to perish. ” Matthew 18:14. The dead will rise again look for yourself in your Bible remember far be it for the true God to act unjustly, “if an able bodied man dies can he live again? All the days of my compulsory service I shall wait until my relief comes.” Job 14:14. May Jesus’ prayer in Matthew 6:10, as well be your firm hope for the future, “Let your Kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in Heaven, also upon Earth.” Psalms 115:16; John 5:28,29; Psalms 37:10,11
