In Memory of my Little Cousin

Lorenzo, 2001-2010
You will live in our hearts forever!

While listening to Lincoln Brewster sing Everlasting God, I thought of my little cousin Lorenzo, who went to be with the Lord way before his loved ones were ready to say goodbye. Yet, I rejoice in knowing the everlasting God who helps us stand during times of overwhelming sorrow. At 3:50, a child recites the hopeful words from Isaiah 40:28-31. I received them as coming from Lorenzo's innocent heart unto the hearts of those of us who continue to wait for the Lord - in hope and with great faith. Though we may feel faint in the waiting at times, the Rock we stand on never faints. Our God never grows weary, but is faithful to strengthen all who wait on Him.

We will continue to wait on You, Lord, and lean on You as our strength and our hope!

"Do you not know? Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint."
(Isaiah 40:28-31)

Comparto esta canción en memoria de mi primito Lorenzo y para dar gracias a nuestro Dios eterno, quien nos mantiene firmes en momentos de gran dolor. En el minuto 3:50, un niño recita las palabras de Isaías 40:28-31. Las recibí como un mensaje del corazón inocente de Lorenzo a los corazones de quienes continuamos esperando y confiando en el Señor con esperanza y fe. Aunque a veces nos cansamos de esperar porque Dios actúe, nuestra Roca se mantiene firme. Dios nunca se cansa, mas fortalece al cansado y al débil.

Continuaremos esperando por Tí, Señor, aferrados a Ti, nuestra fortaleza y esperanza.

"¿Acaso no lo sabes? ¿Acaso no te has enterado?
El Señor es el Dios eterno, Creador de los confines de la tierra.
No se cansa ni se fatiga,
y Su inteligencia es insondable.
Él fortalece al cansado y acrecienta las fuerzas del débil.
Aun los jóvenes se cansan, se fatigan,
y los muchachos tropiezan y caen;
pero los que confían en el Señor renovarán sus fuerzas;
volarán como las águilas:
correrán y no se fatigarán,
caminarán y no se cansarán".
(Isaías 40:28-31)

“For the word of the Lord is right and true; He is faithful in all He does.
The Lord loves righteousness and justice;
the earth is full of His unfailing love.” (Psalm 33:4-5)


"La palabra del Señor es justa; fieles son todas Sus obras.
El Señor ama la justicia y el derecho;
llena está la tierra de Su amor". (Psalm 33:4-5)
