This Week's Sermon: ( 10-26-15 )
One year ago today, October 26, I lost my precious wife.
If you have someone you are sincerely in love with, cling to that person and enjoy every moment with them.
In a heart beat, that person you love can be taken from you.
Just after my Mom died, I had to watch my wife come down with cancer and die.
There is a term used in professional football known as being “ blindsided “.
It is used when a Quarterback is tackled by a Lineman unexpectedly.
The Quarterback is in shock when this happens, unexpectedly.
I was “ blindsided “ with the death of my wife.
I did not see it coming.
My friend, no matter what religious faith you have, this can happen to any of God's children.
It is a fact of life, not only for the unbeliever but for the believer as well.
Cling to who you truly love for as long as you have them, because they can be gone in a moment.
Naomi, in the book of Ruth, lost her husband and 2 sons.
She turned bitter and accused God of dealing bitterly with her.
Later, in her life, she was blessed.
Bad things happen, even to God's children.
This is the reality of life.
However, you can still keep your faith in Jesus Christ because He is a loving God...for real.
I love Jesus, no matter what has happened to me in the loss of my wife, who I love and miss so much.
I refuse to become bitter.
Keep your inner faith in “ the faith “ to the end.
