I attended the funeral yesterday of a friend. He was one of the first people to befriend me at my current church. He often told me how much he enjoyed hearing of God’s amazing healing in Logan. We would joke at Wednesday night Family Supper on whose meal was better. lol
He went in for a routine procedure on Monday and never woke up. On Wednesday, he went to be with our Lord. I was deeply saddened to hear of this that night at Family Supper. I will miss him.
At his funeral, there was an common theme in what everyone said about him. It was that he was a man of great faith. I had often marveled at how close he seemed to be with God in his walk. Some of the things today took my breath away. He talked to God like He was his best friend. And He was. Ken spent a great deal of time reading the Word and could quote Scripture easily. He prayed often and encouraged everyone he met. He was the hands and feet of Jesus here on earth.
Ken has inspired me to become a better Christian. I want to be encouraging like him. I want to talk to God like He is my best friend. I know that first and foremost I need to spend more time in His Word. I need to get out of the house more in order to get more opportunities to share Jesus. I need to pray like I mean it and get busy with the work at hand. Above all , I need to do all of the above in full view of the children. As I begin to place Him #1 in my life, then they will learn how to do it as well. That will be the best legacy that I could ever leave them.
