God will use whatever he wants to display his glory. Including my dying dad. 

The heart attack took him from a healthy man to a comatose paralytic. He lost his voice and couldn’t move, but never lost his faith. Dad suffered stately and died with dignity. His faith in the last few years of led me to marvel in amazement. the funeral, I sat there thinking that because of my dad’s , many may have become ’s followers. 

Now I ask the question did God orchestrate my ’s illness for that very reason? Knowing the , he places on one life; I wouldn’t be surprised. And imagining the beauty of heaven, I know my father will not complain.

Father, give me the strength and to bear my burdens in a way that will honour you. God, I will lift my eyes off the trials and keep them fixed firmly on you. In Christ’s Name Amen.
