I hope I never have to..............

Tony Dungy is the head coach of the best team in pro football, the Indianapolis Colts. Today he buried his oldest son James who committed suicide this past week. I can't imagine how difficult that must be. Tony is an awesome Christian and if you look here you will see how even in grief Tony's true colors come thru. He praises God in this tragic situation and shares with the sports world that his son had a relationship with Jesus. It is amazing how God is glorified in difficult circumstances. Pray for the Dungy Family! I'll never forget my tragic car accident in 1987. A man committed suicide on my car. I have never gotten over it completely. But even that tragic event led to a young lady accepting Christ. I have never felt so much pain and guilt in my life. I saw death first hand. I saw a life slip away. I am still haunted when I drive at night about people coming out of nowhere. I can't watch TV shows or movies that show scenes of people being run over. But that incident has given me 5 or 6 opportunities to help others who have been thru similar circumstances. In I Corinthians 1:3-7 says
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows. If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.

God allows us to go thru things so that we can comfort others. I hope I never have to see death that closely again but I'm grateful for the love of God who helps us through!

That's some story, Kevin. I appreciate your willingness to share it.

I saw a lot of "stuff", too, in my childhood. I was born in the middle of a war, and my upbringing was pretty raw at times. One of my missionary uncles was bayoneted to death, and my dad was on a terrorist hit list for quite a while.

But I also lost a co-worker and friend while in Oklahoma City. We saw him pull onto the campus and then hit a tree. Had to pull him out of the car and start CPR, but he died (he had suffered a heart attack). That experience affected me profoundly. I can relate to how those things stay with you.

But I am also coming to see how the afflictions and sufferings have drawn me closer to God. I'm thankful for His Divine Sovreignty.

I can't imagine the stories you could tell from the Mission field. God definetly shaped me thru all of my struggles. He is good!
