Sometimes, there’s just nothing more left to say about an issue, but the circumstances still haunt us so dearly that we just can’t keep quiet. Reality has dawned on many today as the body of a friend, daughter, cousin and sister was laid to rest; tears rolling down the eyes as the body went down the aisle. Crying and wailing, a father broken down, a mother torn apart, a sister cut asunder, a friend heartbroken and a passerby confused; she has fallen, she is fallen down. “She is not the one, no she can’t be, it doesn’t look like her!” Of course not, she is fallen, she is become dust! Dust to dust, ashes to ashes! We all fall down!
A Time to Die
A wise man said,
“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die” (Ecclesiastes 3:1-2).
We will all fall down!
So We All Fall Down…
What then do we do?
“I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life. And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.” (Ecclesiastes 3:12-13).
This was her testimony, she lived, she did good and she enjoyed the little life that she had. My joy is that she is alive in heaven right now, the best place, the best city, she suffers no more, she worries no more, she cries no more, no more sickness, no more death.
Till I Also Fall Down…
And be with you in heaven, rejoicing and praising the LORD forever, a continuation of what we were doing here on earth before you fell down; I will continue to live for Christ here on earth, love, uphold the truth, and execute judgment and justice.
Till I also fall down, farewell my love, farewell my dear, farewell my friend…
