I met a really remarkable young man yesterday. He’s leading his family through what will likely be the death of his youngest son.
Michael and his wife started a blog to keep their family up to date on how their son was doing. It has expanded far beyond that inner circle to encourage many, including me. I highly recommend it. Here is a taste:
We have death all around us. However, it is not all that we have around us. We have grace all around us too. Like author Paul Tripp says, God, in grace, is using death to lead us to where life can be found. There would be no way for us to endure this impending physical death without the promise of spiritual life in Christ. If this life was ultimate, we would be in despair. But because we have eternal life in Christ and his resurrection we believe that the time Henryk is here is a piece of the thread of his life that will go on into eternity. We are so blessed to have this time with him.
Please pray for this young couple. These days are hard in ways that can’t be fully described. And God is good.
