Hello, I just lost my precious little girl Coco. I can't explain with the human vocabulary how much she meant to me, how she ministered to me through the years and how heartbroken I was when I had to put her to sleep.
I have been crying for days and there is a huge hole in my heart.
For a while I blamed God for taking my little coco and was upset that He did not heal her.
When I got over the anger and was left with just Depression I started telling God how I felt, what she did for me, and how I wanted to see her again in heaven.
All I can say is this, dogs have SOULS. SOULS are ETERNAL. the SOUL is who the person is.
The bible states that ALL of creation WILL BE RESTORED WITH the children of God!
The bible also states that every life that God has ever created will praise Him!
Also, the bible says that God will withhold NOTHING from Him that walks uprightly and
God is able to do FAR ABOVE ALL that we ASK or THINK!
So for me it is this way, I believe God can and will restore our pets to us in heaven.
God NEVER created ANYTHING that is not ETERNAL.
Our flesh might have a lifespan but our souls DO NOT.
What kind of God would create an animal for the pleasure and comfort of humans and choose to prevent them from being reunited in heaven?
How could we call heaven heaven if our loyal loving companions are not allowed to be there to meet us when we get there?
The truth is dogs especially express a greater loyalty and unconditional love than I have ever seen in a human and these expressions of loyalty and love were created by a LOVING GOD.
God created these wonderful creatures for US! Why then would He choose to prevent them from or us from being reunited again!
I am going to go off the deep end here but not only do I believe that our pets will be waiting for us in heaven but I believe that our relationship with them will be enhanced to a greater degree of communication.
We see God speaking to the animals who entered the ark, we see God making a COVENANT PROMISE to ALL the animals and the descendants of those animals after the flood.
We see in scripture that God takes notice when one sparrow falls.
We see in scripture that a righteous man takes care of his animals.
I was in torment about if my little girl would be waiting for me in heaven until I began to pray and study regarding this and I believe it is clear in scripture that in heaven it is God's desire to give us everything we desire, and this includes reuniting with our wonderful pets.
