The soul flees to God

    I lost my sister-in-law 2 nights ago (11/4/19) after a 3 and a half year battle with ALS. She passed away in hospice & she went peacefully. I'm sad i did not get to see her but she had lost a lot of hope with this disease. I am strong enough in my faith to believe the soul flees to God immediately. I don't believe God dwells on carving out a box for this one & that one of humankind because humans are fallable. She was rather young, 57. My brother is troubled. It has been a tough year as we lost our mom & I have lost classmates & other relatives. I ask the community to pray that at the end of the day, this will all come out right. If one recalls the story at the cross, Jesus said it is finished. If it were not finished & there were too many "ands, ifs, buts," then our faith is in vain. The soul dwelleth forever.
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    I feel for you. We lost a 60 year-old 1st cousin from ALS in 2017.

    Hello. First, I want to say my deepest condolences to the people who you lost. And you have my prayers as well. 2nd, I wonder myself the same too of where souls go after they die. Imo, I think they are asleep til Christ's 2nd coming on Earth. But then again, Idk. Only God knows.
