The Death Challenge

God challenges me in many ways.

Death has been the most recent challenge. It really makes you think, doesn't it? I mean, here I have lost my 44 year old uncle to cancer. He has been fighting for 3 years and one day it just slips out of control and then he is gone.

Then, in the midst of all of the chaos that is happening, all my heart can do is worship my Lord and savior and thank him for his complete and utter Faithfulness! Sometimes God asks you to share things you don't want to with people who may not understand.
Because of God's faithfulness, we can't deny what He is asking us to do. So we do the absolute last thing we want and allow God to use the vessel he has created us to be in order to speak his truth. And it isn't always pretty. But, God's love is shown through it.

Now all that is left to do is keep praying for heart change. He is so faithful.


  1. Nice job Ashli! Obedience is hard, but always worth it....instead of looking at yourself as a "crying fool", maybe a "weeping Servant" would be a better description. Thanks for the post. PF

  2. yes, HE is so faithful. and you, my dear, are so obedient. love you...m.e.
