Death is not dying: Rachel's story

On March 4, 2009, Rachel had an opportunity to share about her hope in the midst of terminal cancer. What began as a small talk to her church women’s group became an event attended by over 600 women and was an experience that left many with a desire to discover more about Rachel’s journey and faith. She tells that she's dying and will be gone in 6-8 weeks. Here, she shares her heart and proclaims the glory of God.
"When someone at work is making things difficult, when someone in your family is doing something you don't like, when natural disasters occur or disease happens, God is good, he is in control and he is fair. When you try to make Him into a God that serves you, you're in sin. It's our natural bent to sin...and it's our greatest problem. Know the Gospel."
Her audience was full of Believers and non-Believers. She made her 55 minute talk completely about Jesus and not about herself. What a challenge, what an inspiration, and what a moment to glorify His name. Is God enough for me?
