“death is a microphone” #isthisthingon
“Jesus came to unchain us from the shackles of the fear of death, so we can look at death as a platform and not with panic.”
It was such a special weekend wrapping up this amazing series. My husband wanted to give a gift to everyone in fresh life. A little reminder that God has given each and every one of us a microphone. And it was really a precious thing to see people of all ages leaving with this necklace.
This message hit home deeply for us. As death has proved to be a microphone in our family. My husband came up with four points to explain how this is true:
1) No words are listened to like last words
2) Things you have done live on
3) It forces people to consider their end
4) The crown jewel of our faith is put on display
He brought up how our lives make an impact, and sometimes even more after we die. It’s true for our sweet daughter Lenya. Although she had only five years on this earth with us, the impact that this girl continues to have on this world and eternity is far beyond what we can even see. My husband mentioned that the video of Lenya’s Celebration of her life the day after Christmas, has been viewed over 60,000 times, and that’s not normal for a five year old to have that kind of microphone. But it’s what God is doing, and we are honored to have any part in it, even as we continue to ache and yearn and miss her deeply.
“There’s no bad time to be a Christian, but there’s no BETTER time than when facing the grave.”
