The following is a special submission from Deneetra Belmar from one of her very best friends Natoya Hopper who recently lost both her mother as well as her young 10 year- old daughter Di’Asia from two seperate illnesses.
Her prayer and her courage are indeed marvelous to behold . . . .
My prayer is that what I am about to share will draw each one of you closer to God.
As you may know, this has been a difficult few months for me – within a 2 month time frame I lost both a mother and a child. I grew up hearing things like, “God Know Best”, “Lean and Trust on Him”, “God Will Never Put Know More On You Than You Can Bear” and “God Is A Comforter”.
I can testify that all of these hold value and that God is indeed just that awesome.
As humans when we experience any type of tragedy or oppression, we tend to ask the question as to “Why”. During my time of loss I didn’t want to ask God “Why” not because I didn’t want to know “Why” more so
because I was taught “God knows best”. After losing Di’Asia, God felt as though I needed to know “Why”, and without me asking, God told me.
God spoke to me on Tuesday October 4 th and told me why he took Di’Asia. He explained that he took her in order to draw others closer to him and that the time of his return is sooner than we think. The Lord told me to share what he has revealed to me with all my family and loves ones. Now is the time to seek him and become close to God for life on this earth will soon be over.
We all have a purpose, Di’Asia Nicole served her purpose here on earth and even in her death she continues to serve a purpose, and that is to draw others close to God so that they can spend eternal life with the Father.
“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him. Matthew 24:42-44 (NIV)
