Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.
James 4:14 (NIV)
This week has been nothing but a reminder of this verse. In one day a young worship leader who used to lead worship at my church passed away after what appeared to be a successful surgery to fix his pelvis. He had a serious car wreck on Tuesday and was lucky to live through that. But a blood clot would pass through his system on Saturday. Matt Davidson was also our Sr. Pastor’s brother in law and had been a mentor to our current worship leader. Sunday was a difficult service for Chris. You could just tell the impact Matt had on him.
Also on Saturday, a lady I used to work with lost her soon to be grandson after complications during birth. Hard to even imagine carrying a baby full term just to lose it at birth.
I don’t even know what to say other than I’m sorry. All I can do is just be there for them in anyway I can. All I can do is just pray for them. Misty and I attended Southland’s night of worship tonight and I heard Matt Redman’s song Never Once tonight. This was the first time I have ever heard it and all I could think of was all of my friends who are grieving tonight.
