Come what may ….
Good morning, Tribe! This is a bit of a departure, but a friend of mine recently shared this amazing TikTok video on Facebook, and I just had to pass it on to you.
Dementia is a cruel reality for many people and their loved ones. For many of us, watching this woman in late-stage dementia is painful. Described as “the long good-bye,” dementia empties a person of memories and cognition bit by bit until families are left to deal with a shell of who their loved one once was.
That’s evident in this video. She doesn’t know her children. She doesn’t know where she lives. She doesn’t know what she ate today or what she wore yesterday.
But oh, what she does know!
What and who she rock-solid-one-hundred-percent sure knows is far more important and glorious. Because not even dementia can rob this lady of Jesus. She knows him personally. She loves him. She knows her soul is secure in him.
Without hesitation, this lovely lady comes alive again because deep in her soul, Jesus is. And he speaks her name. They have a relationship. If she could, she would testify: And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow – not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below – indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39
Dear Sisters, none of us knows when or how our earth-bound lives will end. But come what may, don’t we all want to know and love our Savior exactly like this?
