This Week for Sunday

This past week has been a rough one for my family. On Thursday, we lost my Pawpaw, Dad’s dad. Losing him was a slow process. He was in ICU for three plus weeks. I found myself becoming angry and bitter about not having more time with him. I wasn’t angry with God, but with myself and Pawpaw.  And I was also uneasy because I wasn’t certain where Pawpaw would spend eternity.

Pawpaw

I’ve never really let death bother me. I’m not scared to die; I am confident that I will be with Jesus. But I didn’t have those same feelings regarding Pawpaw. I began to pray. A LOT. I asked Jesus to give me comfort; to give me some kind of confirmation on Pawpaw’s fate.

I didn’t know how that would happen, I only trusted that if God wanted to let me know, he would.

My wife Kelli and my 2 year old son, Liam, were sitting at the table coloring a picture of a snowman. Out of no where, Liam stopped coloring, looked at Kelli and said, “Jesus, Pawpaw.”

That was it. That was all Liam had to say. Jesus used the mouth of my 2 year old baby boy to speak peace into my bitter, angry, restless heart.

The Jesus I serve is real. He hears my prayers. He hears the cries of my heart. My Jesus is very much alive and aware of my needs.

I will forever worship the Lord our God!  And I can’t wait to see you, my church family, this Sunday and worship with you.

Here are the songs for this week. There’s a new one in there so be sure to check it out and so you’re ready to belt it out this Sunday.

I am a southern boy that loves to spend my time with my beautiful wife, Kelli, and my two boys, Liam and Levi. I enjoy hunting, fishing, and playing guitar, designing things, Braves baseball, being a husband and dad, but above all I love to worship Jesus… especially with music. I am a Creative Arts Pastor at Southern Hills Christian Church where I focus on graphic design and music.

    My mom passed away in february and I understand how you felt. I have let it go quite a bit in order not to drive myself crazy but the question of “where is she” is still there. Some days I feel like an orphan but the fact is I am the child of the one true King. I am grateful to be a daughter of His and to be a part of the SHCC family.
