Shout It Out

Shout It Out

by

My 95 year-old grandma passed away at the end of last month, and it has hit me harder than I expected. She was an amazing role model and the matriarch of our family. She had the elegance of a queen and treated everyone like royalty. Her retirement was anything but, as she daily served her church and family. As her church transitioned from hymns to rock choruses, and an old, traditional building to a new modern building, she was leading the charge and continued to serve in the children’s ministry until she was no longer able.

Her life was marked by service because of the transformational love of Jesus. At her funeral, I sang these words from her favorite hymn, “Since I met this blessed Savior, since He cleansed and made me whole, I will never cease to praise Him, I’ll shout it while eternity rolls.” Her very life shouted this praise, and I want to follow in her footsteps.

I am convinced that everyone needs to meet this blessed Savior, and only He can make us whole. Thank you for joining ServLife in sharing the hope and restorative love of Jesus around the world. Your generous service has helped start new churches, send children to school and provide small business loans for families. Your support and service is a shout of praise and an investment in God’s kingdom.

May we live in grateful service to our Savior, and never cease to shout his praises through our life and lips.
