A Man You Could Write About

 

A year has passed since our precious brother was taken Home while serving in Iraq, and thoughts of him linger in our minds and we still speak of him so very often. Truly, Daniel was a man that you could write about, not because of how he died -- though he died a hero on a battlefield, and has taken his place in American history -- but because of how he lived. The door to the kingdom of heaven was opened to this child of God. If we could only see Daniel now -- in the words of his commander, enjoying his eternal life -- we would not grieve our loss, but make ready our own hearts in preparation to meet the Lord. And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment. (Hebrews 9:27) We all have an appointment. Daniel kept his appointment, as we also will.

 

Daniel served the Lord while in the U.S. Army and had a strong Christian testimony before those he worked with. He never ceased to be a witness for Jesus in his daily life, and was an example of the believer before others. He expressed his desire to see not only his family, but his fellow soldiers touched by the Lord as he had been. In a world where many are disconnected from the needs of others, he had a true vision for the lost.

 

We are so blessed to have had Daniel as a part of our lives. His smile made our world a little brighter. Amy, Daniel's mother, chose The Message Medley by 4Him to be played at his funeral. The lyrics below describe Daniel's life because he is A Man You Could Write About.

 

"To live a love that never fails - Love my neighbor as myself

And to give till there is nothing left to give - To live a faith that never dies

To be crucified with Christ - Until all that lives through me is the message

 

Oh, I say the measure of a man - is not how tall you stand

How wealthy or intelligent you are - cause I found out the measure of a man

God knows and he understands - For he looks inside to the bottom of your heart

And what's in the heart defines the measure of a man

From the time - time began - You always chose a man

To lead the people safely by Your way -To be a voice and echo what You say

 

Like David or Abraham -- Your Word is full of such men

 

And if the Bible had no closing page -- and still was being written to this day --Word is full of such men --

 

Oh, I want to be a man that you would write about -- oh, a thousand years from now -- that they could read about -- your servant of choice in whom you found favor -- a man who heard your voice --

 

Generations away it is my prayer that they will look back and say

“Oh, to have that kind of faith and love - What a solid man of God he was”

 

To live a love that never fails - Love my neighbor as myself

And to give till there is nothing left to give - To live a faith that never dies

To be crucified with Christ - Until all that lives through me is the message.
