A shocking and tragic email appeared in my inbox this afternoon: a beautiful and beloved professor at my college had closed her eyes for the last time yesterday evening. It was sudden — no one at my college anticipated or expected it.

In a way, the timing was very sobering for me. Attending a college with a strong political focus, tomorrow’s presidential election has been very prominent in my view. But my professor will never know, nor need to worry about, the results of tomorrow’s election. Safe in Jesus’ arms, she is already reveling in Christ’s ultimate victory — over death, over sickness, over all…

Her view from heaven is the right view. Tragic and sudden deaths will occur in this world. Elections will come and go. Politicians whom we support will win and lose. But as we continue to walk through this life, whether we celebrate or mourn, we can take comfort in Christ’s ultimate victory.

In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. – John 16:33
