Who was the Message For?

Brenda Ford 7/3/48-12/15/20

On the morning of December 14th, my sister, Brenda, is rushed to the hospital by ambulance service. Her breathing was shallow. They tested her for Covid-19. The results were negative. Praise God! We were very relieved Brenda did not have Covid.

We knew they were doing additional tests to determine the cause of her breathing difficulties. We were very worried. However, As I was praying, I remembered Brenda had her iPad with her. I felt lead by the Holy Spirit to send her this message:

God is love. He loves you more than you can imagine. Rest in his arms as he heals your health needs. You will be home soon.❤️ Karen 🙏🙏🙏

A nurse from the hospital called and said, “Brenda has blood clots in her lungs. We are going to admit her for further testing in the morning.“

When I called Brenda the next morning she had completed all the tests. She said she was exhausted. “No problem, I will call you back in thirty minutes,” I said. Twenty minutes later I received a call from the ICU unit. Brenda had made a turn to the worst. “Oh, my God, No, please No”, I cried. I continued to pray. Fifteen minutes later I received the second call from the ICU unit. All I heard was, you need to get to the hospital as quickly as you can. Your sister is not going to make it. He was right! Brenda was gone before we made it upstairs to the ICU unit.

The next day my sister, Dorothy, called me crying. It was difficult to understand what she was saying. Finally, I heard Dorothy say, “ I have Brenda’s iPad.” Dorothy continued saying, “ Karen, Brenda never received your message, also the message she sent you was not delivered.”

Dorothy forwarded Brenda’s message to me. I love you all and know I am in God’s hands.

I started thanking God through my tears. Yes, my sister had no fear she knew she was in God’s hands. Thank you, Lord, for giving my sister peace that you can only give. Thank you for the promise your children will arise and meet you in the sky when you return to take them home. You will wipe all tears from their eyes, there will be no more death, or sorrow, or crying, or pain. Thank you, Lord, for comforting me with the message I thought was for Brenda but was really for me.

“I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, “Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them. He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.””
