-Excerpt from my book Never Ceasing: God’s Faithfulness in Grief
In cutting his earthly life short, God has withheld no good thing from our Hans. For the Christian, to die is gain, and Hans has surely gotten the better end of the deal. He is basking in the light of God’s presence, utterly shielded from all evil, rich with the benefits and blessings of God’s grace. Engulfed in His glory.
O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee. Psalm 84:12
Johannes August Josef Nolywaika
. . . I trusted in thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my God. My times are in thy hand . . .
