I recently learned of the passing of a popular African singer at the age of 21. Even though I had never heard of her or her music before her passing, I have been quite sad that she left this world at such a ripe age. I can’t imagine how her mom and dad must feel now, and I commiserate with them in this difficult period. You never want to lose a child. I pray for God to strengthen and comfort them now.
Her demise at such a young age has reminded me of these four things:
1. Young people die too. It is never easy to accept this sad truth. When we get to heaven, God will be able to explain this to us better.
Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now… Click To Tweet
2. Choices confront us every day. The path you choose determines what you will be remembered for.
3. You can make a mark in the world no matter your age. God has placed gifts in each of us, so be brave enough to use them for His glory. The more you use them, the better they become, and the more lives you affect positively.
4. We should show people love and appreciation while they are alive. This is especially for me. I often forget to keep in touch with my friends and family. I am reminded that I shouldn’t wait till the person is gone to demonstrate my love.
Has anyone close to you passed away at a young age? My heart goes out to you.

This is a trustworthy saying, worthy of full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the worst. (1 Timothy 1:15 NLT)
