96 – Life and Death

Hailey was excited about giving birth to another child. She and her husband were expecting the baby to come any day now.

One day, Hailey received some bad news: her best friend had just been killed in a car accident. Hailey was devastated. She cried and cried.

Before she knew it, her water broke and the baby was on the way. Hailey and her husband rushed to the hospital. She delivered a beautiful daughter. Hailey was overjoyed to have her new baby, but she was also heartbroken over the loss of her best friend.

Three days later, Hailey and her family attended the funeral. After the funeral, Hailey’s best friend’s mother came up to her and said, “Here. She would have wanted you to have this.” She gave Hailey her Bible.

Hailey took the Bible home and began to read it. She was comforted by the words of scripture, and she found strength in her faith.

One day, Hailey was reading the Bible when she came across the following verse:

“One day I will wipe away every tear and take away all your pain.”

This verse gave Hailey hope. She knew that her best friend was in a better place, and she knew that one day she would see her again.

Hailey continued to grieve the loss of her best friend, but she also found joy in her new daughter. She knew that her friend would have been happy for her, and she was grateful for the support of her family and friends.

Hailey’s story is a reminder that even in the midst of tragedy, there is always hope. With faith and love, we can overcome any obstacle.

“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

Revelation 21:4
