A tribute for Remembrance
2014 is such a significant year for remembrance. There’s Armistice Day – the 11th month, on the 11th day, at the 11th hour, a time where we remember those who suffered and sacrificed their lives for us so we could have a better today. On top of that, it’s the centenary anniversary of the outbreak of World War 1. And as we pay tribute to those from the Great War, we also remember those who have and continue to put their lives on the line. My Father was a Welsh guardsman who served in Northern Ireland during troubled times.
But with so much conflict surrounding us today you have to pose the question, why? Why do we live in a world of brokenness? And how does God feel about it all? Not just on the larger scale of wars between nations, but daily battles we all face in one shape or form.
In 2013, I lost my Father to pancreatic cancer and fully felt the emotional roller coaster of grief. I was benched from work for 6 weeks and battled with my faith, which was anchored in a God of love. This video is centered on a passage of scripture that speaks hope into hopeless places. May we Remember, that when we weep – we don’t weep alone.
