Funerals

I’ve been up for some time, Father, I have prayed some but my brain is zipping all over the place. I have been trying to focus (unsuccessfully!) on our time together. Physical issues and weariness aren’t helping either but I must push through it all. It’s too important to not do so.

This week has been full for sure. My weeks are usually that way but adding, not one, but two funerals into the mix has really stirred things up! Lord, I’ll definitely need Your help to finish getting things ready for Sunday but I really wouldn’t have had it any other way.

Funerals are taxing, yes, but it is a privilege and an honor to be used by You, Lord, to touch people’s lives during these difficult times. To be a physical manifestation of Your love to others is well worth all the effort.

As family and friends of the dearly departed ones work through their grief and loss, may they find You there. May they be drawn to You. May they find comfort in Your arms. Use me, too. May I be a representative of Your kingdom, touching lives for eternity.
