Not only does He value you, but He can still use you to help others if you want Him to.
Many peoplefeel worthless when their illness progresses to the point where they are dependenton others for their everyday care. JESUS SEES YOU as a whole person. You NEVER become worthless to Him
No matter what happens in the last stages of life, GOD STILL LOVES YOU! He sees through all sicknesses, disabilities, and conditions to see your heart and soul that He created. He loves you through all stages of living and dying.
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree,
that we, being dead to sins, should live unto
righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
1 Peter 2:24 (KJV)
We believe God uses a terminal illness, and especially the last phases before death, to bless and heal families. This phenomenon we call “God’s symphony orchestra.” A terminal illness can bring a family together like no other event. Suddenly, many of life’s difficulties seem small in comparison. It challenges our values and reveals our stumbling places. Life-long feuds are often laid to rest, hurts forgiven and forgotten.
For most people, the experience of facing death helps them live better. It is both a
magnificent healing and a horrible nightmare at the same time. Healing? Yes--God can heal. Sometimes people are miraculously healed of their sickness. But even if that does not happen for you or your loved one, God will heal you spiritually and emotionally in many ways if you ask Him and have faith that He wants to heal.
God did not want physical death for us originally, but man brought it upon himself. God will use death, and especially the dying process for GLORIOUS things. Your faith and courage through your dying process will have a huge impact on others! God can and does use people EVEN when they are in a coma, or have lost their ability to
speak, or have lost touch with reality.
Jesus will NEVER leave you or forsake you. Yes, we have the wonderful promise of Heaven after we die. After the suffering will come Paradise. Our lives are so short
compared to eternity. Make the most of every minute of life here on Earth to be a shining light for Him. You will be richly blessed.
