Goodbye Stef…..

December 23, 2008 — 10 Comments

It is with great sadness I write this. My blog friend and AC180 comrad passed away on Sunday. You can read it here.

He fought cancer so hard and we were with him and his family every step of the way.

It is an odd thing having internet friends. I have reconciled with myself however that even though I have not met many of them they are closer to me than friends I know in person.

Stef was an amazing man of God. He fought hard for his life and prayed hard. He lived each day to it’s fullest and cherished his wife and and three kids dearly. He was and still is an inspiration to me. Even in my personal struggles he would, while dealing with cancer, send me messages of encouragement and to let me know he was praying for me. I know it was tough. real tough. But stef lived the word.

In everything…Give thanks.

And that spoke to my heart more than anything.

I am thankful with every fiber in me that stef is with the Lord right now.

His favorite verse was

Phil 1:6 “6 There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears.”

God fullfilled a great work in stef. Probablly more than he or his wife even knew. He reached many people and I know at minimum the guys at AC180 all recieved a piece of Christ from him.

I am thankful I knew stef, wish I could have met him, and filled with joy about seeing him in heaven.

Thank you stefan…..

It’s seems in this day …that is 2007 we don’t see too many miracles if any. When I did mission work over seas I saw them all the time. I think we have become complacent and the church does not rely on Christ as much as we should. We have so much that entangles us in our lives that we are missing “HIM”.

You saw in my last post that a friend was in need of prayer. His name is Stefan. He is a great Christian man, father, and husband. He has been diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. I don’t know about you but I believe that the God of abraham and Issac..The God of David and the God of me is the same yesterday and today. He is a God of healing. He is a God of hope.
Philippians 4:6
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

Please intercede with me for my friend and brother.

I’ve been tagged by Grits N Grace and MudPuppy to list 5 things I dig about Jesus and then tag five other bloggers.

Rules:

  • Those Tagged will share 5 things they dig about Jesus.
  • Those tagged will tag 5 other bloggers.

SO here is my 5:

  1. Because He made me like Him
  2. He bore my sin and shame
  3. Gave me my wife and kids
  4. forgives continually
  5. Gave me the gifts to give back to Him
