THE TWO HALVES OF MY LIFE
Ecc. 7:17/Isa. 41:13; 60:20/Mt. 5:4

All day long, and from the moment the cemetery opened, Wallace Mann was at his daughter’s graveside. He had brought fresh flowers in the morning and again in the afternoon. He polished the tombstone innumerable times. "The magic of Sarita," said the inscription on the stone, "is as eternal as the love of her parents."

By the end of the day Wallace Mann could no longer contain the pain. In a moment of deep distress he took the revolver from the glove box of the car, walked with it to the foot of the tombstone, sat down on the grass and simply and quickly took his life. This was the sad end to pathetic story.

Wallace Mann had been divorced from his wife. The judge, for reasons of security, had prohibited him visiting rights to his child. One day Sarita, in an incident totally unrelated to her parents, was kidnapped and killed by a sixteen year old boy. It was the last straw for the father. "When they refused me visiting rights," said the suicide note "they took away half of my life. When they killed her, they took away the other half. I have nothing more to live for."

Life has, at times, strange twists. There are circumstances that appear to leave us with death as our only option. When all hope is gone, and when living is harder than dying, nothing seems better than suicide. This can be a very normal reaction . . . except when we have faith in God.

Here is one of the greatest truths of life. When we invite Jesus Christ into our heart, He gives us a brand new life blueprint. It's a completely new design that covers all the rest of our lives. Jesus referred to this as "giving life to the dead." Here are His words: "Just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it. . .. Whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life." (John 5:21,24)

Some things are so devastating that one doesn’t know how to cope. Hope vanishes, and along with that, the desire to live. Still, death is never the solution. It’s when we come to the end of our resources that God gives us a brand new blueprint for all the rest of our lives. We can trust God fully and completely. He will never let us down.


Did you know that our website (www.Box100.org) has our programs posted for each day of the month in the Spanish language? In the future, as funds allow, we will advertise on secular Spanish websites with the goal of winning souls for Christ. Please pray with us for this future outreach.
