Shout It Out-Zack’s Heavenly Home, July 2021

Zachary Ian Hawkins 5 Feb 1980-2 July 2015

Six years ago, Zack left this world and entered his heavenly home, the Lord had prepared for him. He fought against the cancer (glioblastoma brain cancer) that was to end his life. He had the surgeries, took the chemo and had 27 rounds of radiation to his brain. Regardless, he left us, less than 4 months after his diagnosis. I am grateful he didn’t suffer longer.

Before Zack was born, the Lord wrote in His book his date of birth and the number of his days, as He does for all of us.

Our lives are made with two dates and a dash. Make sure Jesus is part of your life after that dash.

Psalm 139:13-18 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand—when I awake, I am still with you.

Those of us who love Zack miss him. He holds a place in our hearts even now, 6 years later and always will in mine. I cherish the memories. One day we will make new ones, together in heaven.

If you don’t know Jesus in your heart as Lord and Savior, have forgiveness of sins and eternal life, look to Him for Salvation. All of our days are written down in God’s book. We don’t know how much time we have left on this earth, no matter your age. Zack was 35. I thank God he was in relationship with the Lord. I know I will be with him again because I love Jesus. I don’t want anyone missing out on heaven, life with Jesus and all our Christian loved ones who have gone before us. Don’t put it off, ask Jesus to save your soul.

Thank You Lord for taking care of Zack for me. Let him know he is loved and missed. See ya’ll soon.

God bless. Heal the brokenhearted, bind up all their wounds.
