I Don't Feel Jesus!

My pastor, Ken, died tonight suddenly....unexpectedly....without warning. I am numb, in shock, heart broken, confused, angry, scared; and right now I don't feel Jesus around me. I know I will, but right now I don't. Right now I just want to punch something and wail uncontrollably. Right now I want to know what good is coming of this. Right now I want to wake up and learn that this was all a dream. Right now I want to fall apart and cry endless tears. Please pray for Ken's family and our church family! We will praise You in this storm, and God will continue to be glorified through Ken's death as He was during the way Ken led his life! Lift us up!
1 Thessalonians 5:16-19

16 Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

19 Do not quench the Spirit.

Thank you God for blessing my life by having such a wonderful, authentic, spiritual, life changing leader as I had in Ken. God changed my life through Ken!

I cannot even imagine what church will be like today or how the congregation or his family is handling Ken's death. We will continue to pray for everyone that his life touched - for strength, peace, comfort, strength,and direction. It is hard to give thanks at a time like this, but we will pray that God will continue to work through Ken's life.

I am at a loss for words this weekend. It all feels like a dream. Ken was a wonderful man who had a gift for people. Life is precious!

I am so sorry, my Friend. There are no words. I am praying for you all.
Job 23:8-10
8 “But if I go to the east, he is not there; if I go to the west, I do not find him. 9 When he is at work in the north, I do not see him; when he turns to the south, I catch no glimpse of him. 10 But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold.
