It’s a weird feeling going to bed tonight knowing that I’m having a funeral for my son tomorrow. Every father thinks they will get to see their children grow up and outlive them…but this was not God’s plan for Trey. God called him home after running a tremendous 7 year race! Trey’s life counted in the most significant of all ways…he made an eternal difference in countless people’s lives. God used him to change my life the most!!! My son is my hero in every possible way.
I’m praying that souls will be won to Jesus Christ tomorrow through Trey’s story. I’m praying that Emily and I and our children will have the strength and grace needed to endure tomorrow. I’m praying that we will walk by faith and focus on the things unseen…the things that are eternal.
In our grief, here is a verse Emily and I are clinging to:
“For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known (1 Corinthians 13:12).”
One day…all things will be clear to us as they are to Trey now. Trey sees face to face…his faith has been made sight. I can’t wait to see him again and behold what he beholds.
