the day between
the day of contemplation
the day to look
on the past & reconcile
the day of realization
my sin put my God
on a cross
in order that
we could be together
we could have life
L I V E
do not throw it away
d o n o t p u t i t o n a s h e l f
do not hide this gift
as we share it
it is living
it is breathing
from a living breathing God
He loved us first
F I R S T
while we were lost
while we were sinning
so we could

A prayer for my friends and family and all those afar. i don’t think that there are any words that could be added to David’s, so the text will speak for my prayer today…
It is a sad week here in our small town. 2 awesome young men, fathers, mentors, husbands, friends, were taken from this earth to their heavenly homes on Sunday, April 6. Their families grieve for the loss. Their friends weep. Their children’s hearts shattered. Their loss impacts many here and around the world.
So many losses in this past month. Senseless death. Heartbreak. Sorrow. So many communities grieving. The only one who can console is our loving heavenly Father. Only He can relate. Only He can heal. Only He can help us continue without these who have influenced, encouraged, loved, and etched their memories into our hearts. Only He can make us whole again. And yet, we will never be completely whole until we are joined together in heaven again.
Today i pray for the families, the communities, the ones who are lost and wandering. i pray for comfort, for friends, for healing, for peace. the marks that they carved into our souls will be ever present, the lives they have left will not be forgotten, but the mourning will last for a time. i pray that there are moments of joy in their grief and comfort thru their tears. there are no words that could ever make it ok, but i pray for love, peace, and comfort to surround each one and that they would find their rest in the One who knows the beginning from the end and the heartache of loss.
In loving memory of Pastor Tyler Liljekvist and Coach Chris Prewitt, who both wore more hats than can be listed and both affected lives around the world. May God keep their families and strengthen them thru the fire and on the journey ahead.
