We need a heart for the lost

A Moment in Time

This weekend was a tragedy for my small town. Friday night a van of eight of our basketball players and two coaches were struck head on by an elderly gentleman. The police believe the elderly gentleman had a stroke of a heart attack. He was killed instantly and so were the two basketball coaches. The accident took place just sixteen miles from home. The boys were coming home from a basketball camp. Their whole lives ahead of them, one moment in time changed everything. One of the coaches was only twenty-four years old. All three men were Christians so we do have that comfort.

The boys were life flighted all over the state; Kearney, Grand Island, Lincoln, and Omaha. Several have been released but several are still in the hospital. One of the boys, Chad, is in Intensive Care with a severe head injury. We still need prayers for him. One of the boys had two broken legs and a broken arm and will never be able to play ball again. It was everything to him. One moment in time and it changed everything.

My grandson's girl friend's, practically a member of our family, uncle was also in a serious accident. He was riding a motorcycle when he was struck by a car. His spine was crushed among other injuries. He is in Intensive Care. If he lives he will be paralyzed for the rest of his life. He is divorced and has children. He is not a Christian. One moment in time changed everything.

Such devastation; we are in a war, we just lost a battle, but we will win the war. the devil is doing all he can to destroy us. We need to be aware that the thief comes to kill, steal, and destroy.
