It’s Not Over Until It’s Over

I heard a rumor not too long ago that he loved Jesus.

To say I was shocked was an understatement.

This was in no way the man knew—or should I say, boy. The union was brief for this teenage couple– he a mere nineteen, and I, a sweet sixteen.

No surprise there.

But, imagine my shock to hear that, not only did he develop a love for Jesus, he had a determination to share this love with anyone and everyone ALL THE TIME!

His mom supplied the gaps of our lives apart with details of his intimate relationship with his Savior.  The one that stood out the most was his remarkable transformation.

I heard this love affair began on a day he was on the verge of giving up on life entirely.

It was said he cried out to God in desperation, and in a bold declaration, declared if HE helped him through this time of turmoil, he would dedicate his life completely to HIM.

Well, no surprise here…

God helps desperate people who cry out to HIM in the midst of desperation.

I heard he kept his end of the bargain, and lived his life with Jesus in the forefront of his everyday.

All the way to the end.

His life ended one winter day in March. Fourteen years ago.

He would have turned fifty today.

Is there someone in your life who seems too lost for rescue?

Don’t give up on this lost soul.

You never know how their story ends until the end.
