I Will Rise

By September 25, 2018 No Comments

My father was not a Christian. A very good man, husband, and father. He just took complete care of his family. We prayed for him for years. My mother led by example. A few years ago he was diagnosed with cancer. From January to August he fought the good fight but died in 2014. BUT. GOD…. God worked in his heart and at the age of 78 , three weeks prior to his death, my dad accepted the Lord as his Savior!!! I knew I would sing at his funeral. I just didn’t know what or how. God answered that as well as He gave me the song on KCBI one morning in my grief. It was I Will Rise by Chris Tomlin. My music minister said he had never heard that song sung at a funeral. God also gave me the greatest peace as I sang that in honor of my Dad but to the glory of God. Thank you Lord for the music you put in our souls and that you sing over us.
