About grief and loss...

Our worship leader Jim is getting worse. In fact, he's not expected to live out the week. The good news is that his death will not be wasted. God used it to bring his friend to salvation. A friend Jim had tried to reach for years. Jim's favorite song is How Great is Our God. The main theme of the song is God's awesome power and majesty and how He's in control of it all. We're supposed to sing it as a worship team in tribute to him this Sunday. There won't be a dry eye in the place. Though he will be leaving a wife and two teens behind (as well as two young adult children) he's ready to meet his maker. Of course, he doesn't want the heartache that comes with his passing, but he's exciting about meeting the Lord soon. I don't blame him. Someday all of those who believe will see Him face to face and we'll worship our Lord together. All of the heartaches of this life will melt away. What an awesome day that will be.

Michelle, so sorry to hear about your worship pastor's struggle as he nears the end of his life. I'll be praying for his family (kids especially) as they grieve over this huge vacancy in their lives. What a powerful thought, though, that he'll be in Heaven--no more pain, suffering, worrying, struggling... In the end, it all boils down to one thing. God is good!
