One of the services was for a 70 year old who had enjoyed a life full of God and love. Another was for a young man in his prime, struck down by disease. This third is a double whammy...twin girls who fought for life from the very womb. With each successive memorial service, I have grown more frustrated with the enemy and more firmly resolved that there is a Kingdom coming.
I know all the old adages. Death is a part of life. It is appointed unto man once to die. This death is only physical, it's not the true end. None of it resonates with my heart right now...proof that not all things true are comforting, even if they're meant to be.
I know this is all 'part of the curse....'...but it's not the part that I like. Let me tell you my favorite part of that passage.
So the Lord God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this...I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel."Your day is coming, Satan. You'll pay for this. For sickness and disease and the lack that we live in. You'll pay for Charli & Ali. Your head will be crushed once and for all. We will see Justice rise up, on this side or on the other. We will not be denied for eternity.
