Rant: Death



This blog post is a rant about said topic.  This might piss some people off or you might agree.  Each to their own opinions. This might also contain some foul language. These are my own thoughts and opinions, not the thoughts of anyone else or anyone mentioned in this post. You have been warned.

This past week, I have known a few people who lost their spouses. Each of them either being a pastor, or the wife of a pastor. One was an old pastor of mine who passed away in his sleep, another was a pastors wife who passed away after fighting cancer, another pastor of old age, and the final one of them being my pastor’s wife, mother of 5, who passed away at the age of 33 in her sleep.

What first comes to my head is, why would God take someone’s life that is so young and doing his work?  I do not k now the answer to this, I do not think the answer is in the Bible, and if you say you have the answer then you are full of crap.  Yes, I know that has been sin in the world since the fall, but it still pisses me off that something like this would happen to someone doing the will of God.  Heck, they were the happiest couple I have seen with what they have, always smiling and just being uplifting.

You know what, this is the worst situation someone could be in, losing their spouse at such a young age. No matter your situation, you cannot compare it to this.

I mean I can go as far as saying why did God let that young boy or girl die of cancer, and so on.  The answer is the same, we do not know and we will find out one day when in Heaven with Jesus.
End of my short unscripted rant.

My church has set up a donation fund for her to build and start churches in Bolivia, which you can donate here.  This was her heart and what she wanted to do.

You can also see my pastor’s sermon he gave this past Sunday, the first Sunday after her passing below.

This song My Disaster by Love and Death off of their album  Between Here & Lost, gives some meat to my rant.  Lyrics Below.


How can you watch me suffer
How does it feel
Why do you stay so silent
Will the time reveal
You're the leader I follow
Am I a victim of circumstance
Feeling everything
Crashing down on me
Lost and so afraid
It's my disaster
Losing everything
Giving all of me
I feel so betrayed
In my disaster
How can you say you love me?
It's so unclear
I hope the pain will leave one day
With all the fear
You're the leader I follow
Am I a victim of circumstance
Feeling everything
Crashing down on me
Lost and so afraid
It's my disaster
Losing everything
Giving all of me
I feel so betrayed
In my disaster
But I'll make it through
But I'll make it through
I've got to dominate
I will not tolerate it
Will I appreciate
The pain that leads me to you
Feeling everything
Crashing down on me
Lost and so afraid
It's my disaster
Losing everything
Giving all of me
I feel so betrayed
In my disaster
But I'll make it through
My disaster
But I'll make it through
My disaster
