In an instant I had the faith to believe in all the promises of God. Something changed inside me. I found myself saying, "yes", "yes", "yes" to everything He was offering me. Yes, to His light on dark days. Yes, to sunshine in the midst of that rain! Yes, I believe, I believe, I believe in everything He has promised even when I don't see those things playing out in my life right now.
I drove home with that YES on my lips and new light burning brightly from behind my eyes. Everything seemed a little better. I didn't understand how that happened or why that happened but I understood I needed to recieve it fully.
"YES" was her answer to everything God was offering her (blessings and hardships) and when she received her diagnosis a short time later, everything made sense to her. Her unwavering YES inspired her husband to construct a huge 4' x 4' YES which hung in front of their house as a Holy witness.
I can't imagine the loss her family and friends are feeling right now. But I know they must feel a tremendous comfort knowing the peace that Brittany experienced because of her faith and her assurance that she will one day see her loved ones "on the other side." She will be greatly missed.
"Let not your hearts be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you."
