Mind you, I am not a major Steven Curtis Chapman fan. I would not list him as a favorite artist, or would any of his songs be on a Top 10 list of mine, but the feeling that I got while watching him perform…he is truly inspirational.
A couple weeks ago, I was doing my daily run of blogs to read on my bookmarks and came across Kenny Kim’s blog. There it read ‘Send a prayer for Steven Curtis Chapman and his family’, I was then surprised when I read that his adopted daughter had passed away. I felt overcome with sadness thinking that this family doesn’t deserve this. He encourages people to believe and walk with Jesus…why him? Why his family? A lot of questions such as these surround ourselves with a passing…may that be of a loved one or even a stranger such as this time. I still was unable to believe what I was reading and was soon filled with sorrow that this family was going through such a painful loss. I began to pray and still do. My prayers still go out to this great Christian singer and his family.
My prayers go out to you and your family. I pray that the Lord weep with you and strengthen you at this time. I know you will find strength from this and we all will soon be hearing it in a tear jerking, life rejoicing melody in rememberance of your precious little girl.
