Last month I spoke at a funeral for my friend which I have known over 30 years. I don’t go to funerals. In fact, this friend told me he wasn’t going to attend either of his parent’s funerals. For that experience would be the last interaction he would have had with them. His mother died 7-months later and he shuffle beyond this mortal world one year after his mother departed.
It’s interesting, he experienced the death of his mother and then he passed away. The message I passed to others, during my friend’s funeral. Explained that seasons come to everyone in this human experience and it’s not the event of the session. Rather, what type of person did you become from the event or season. For did you become bitter, distrusting, or irritated of others? Did you lose your Faith in the Lord your God? What type of person have you become after your testing?
People say life has three phases. Most people won’t distinguish any of the phases until the latter part of life. For the most part, males find themselves, at 50 years of age. Looking for Christ, at lease the smarter ones knowing or thinking, I’m I going to make it into Heaven? I better start being amiable to people, than I have in the pass.
If you’re at this point in life, you are experiencing a season. I hope your human experience guides you to the right outcome. I can testify, without a previous experience with the Lord my God. I wouldn’t have been stronger to recognize that the grace of Jesus Christ carries me through any season.
