Death is so wrong


More from my friend John’s journal following the death of his wife.

Abstract Web from Linda Keagle

“It feels so unreal, so hard, so lonely.  I know the truth but I don’t like it right now.  I think I never will.  Death is so wrong.  It is evil. It is not part of God’s intent.  I’m raw, shredded, wounded…I shrink from this path.  I am weak & seek another way – any way, just not the way of brokenness, loneliness and sacrifice.”

I’m beginning to understand the cost of the good news about Jesus in fresh ways.  Good news, miracles of a changed life or reconciliation, of hearts being healed are expensive.  Romans 8:32 explains, “He who did not spare His own son, but gave him up for us all – how will he not also along with him, graciously give us all things?”  I’m not the first nor the last to walk this path.  Losing my wife has given me a new deeper appreciation of what my heavenly Father sacrificed for the miracle of my changed life, granting forgiveness and making me his own.

“Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!  How unsearchable his judgements and his paths beyond tracing out!  Who has known the mind of the Lord?….”  Romans 11:33-36.
