Throwback Thursday – God did not need my son…

This article from last summer speaks of truths regarding my son’s death. Biblical truth. I so wish more people knew truth about God — who He is, His character, His ways….we can know these truths by studying His Word. 
More than a few grieving parents have said they wished the leaders of their church would read this. So I am reposting it.

Please read it and leave me a comment with your thoughts. 

At a church social Sunday night, a kind man tried to comfort me about Andrew’s death. He knew that this past week was the anniversary of The Accident and knew that those special days can be hard. He was trying to be kind.

I suppose it seemed odd to him that we can mention our children, including Andrew without tears or sorrow showing on our faces. We can go to parties and laugh and have fun even though our son is dead. (Hint: He is not dead but living in Heaven!) God has healed my heart. And we love to laugh! Our kids – all of them – have given us great joy and great stories over the years. When talking about my kids I often smile. I love them bunches.

After asking what had happened, how Andrew had died, he said, “Well, God needed him in heaven more than you needed him on earth.”  Read more…

    • Thank you.

      Ron and I have found ourselves rethinking what we believed about God, heaven, death, predestination, and much more. We are glad to have Truth available to us in the Word. The Truth is what sets us free – free from sin, anger, doubt, unforgiveness, and so much more!
