Walking through the dark valley

Death is something we don't like to think about it, much less talk about it. However, death is that one reality that will not leave us alone. We lose friends and family members to death. At one point in our lives, we too, will face this inevitability unless Jesus comes before our passing. So what is our assurance as we face the inescapable? Our Shepherd! He will walk us through, guiding and protecting and comforting us in our journey. And as Christians, this promise is more real because we know Jesus as our Good Shepherd, and he has taken the walk ahead of us to insure that our walk through death's valley doesn't end in death, but in glory.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
— Psalm 23:4

Dear Lord thank you that we do not have to face death alone. We look for your guidance and listen for your voice to lead us through death's dark valley and bring us to your holy and glorious presence in victory and with joy. In Jesus' name, Amen.

Please pray for a friend who said goodbye to her brother today, but is excited that someday she will be reunited with him in heaven.
