From Save to Take


I would never think that anyone could actually prepare for the worst in the best way. When the time arrives it is worst than worst. It is beyond what you imagine as you tug from the depth of your mental state the most appropriate coping mechanisms possible. And during that moment where your prayers were strongly directed towards SAVE HIM, now you know how to direct prayer best to TAKE HIM.

Why prolonged suffering, torment, pain, chaos, anger, pent-up sadness, anxiety and every other ill thing that surfaces in moments of terminal THREATS!!!!

It is coming to an end.
It is coming to the last.
It is coming to the worst.
It is accepting our reality.

Some situations are left incurable and so is the disease to torment many.
It is called CANCER!
What a threat to human health and stability. Where’s the cure? The safety? Perhaps it is in the end.
I have seen cancer survivors! Heard the most radical testimonies! But what about the ones that went beyond cure.
Those that neglected their health or that is was so rapidly progressive to the point to tear down major functioning organs.
Well what can we do?
We pray, believe, hope, cry out, scream, anguish and face many challenges with the fierceness of the disease but on several occasions it comes like a thief…
To steal, kill and destroy! So why remain on it?

Now I see face to face the beast of addiction tearing through the mortal flesh. When the one thing that can’t change, can’t budge, can’t deny… What’s left to save?

How about just TAKE!

So that those individuals like my father that now battles with stage 4 liver cancer can have a better way of being off this temporary land called earth.

We will go through all of the madness!
But why prolong this? I want you to be saved!!! But not like this… Save the soul and then TAKE!!!! Where there will be no more sorrow and no more pain for all that are affected by the incurable.
We can’t keep tearing up our last precious days with all those high fits of rage in an effort to cope.
Precious moments shouldn’t be prideful or painful but PURPOSEFUL!!!

I know you will understand what I mean here in the best love. Saving is beautiful but even more so knowing that we are taken to a place of everlasting peace! ❤️

I don’t wanna cry anymore in front of you like this. For truly I knew by your side today my love was genuine, rich and filled with freedom…. And then came the painful moments. There shouldn’t be anything else to tear down. God it is in your hands.

You know that I love you with all of me.

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
