It's All in His Hands
"Weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning." - Psalm 30:5
Death is always a difficult topic to grasp. Whenever someone dies we always wonder, where was God when they died, and why did He let it happen to them? From movie stars, professional athletes, and other celebrities to firefighters, police officers, and loved ones; our hearts are filled with grief and for a while everything pales in comparison to our loss.
Recently influential men in the world of professional sports like George Steinbrenner, John Wooden have had an outpouring of sympathy and even increased popularity after their death. Hall of Fame basketball coach, Jim Valvano’s death was met with widespread mourning, a tournament name in his honor, and a multi-million dollar foundation in his memory to support cancer research. More recently Coach Wooden graced the cover of Sports Illustrated following his passing. Regardless of who has passed, death brings unparalleled grief and heartache.
- Have you had to deal with the loss of a loved one recently? How did it impact you?
- God always hears His children’s voices and He is there to comfort you. How do you call on Him in times of need?
