To God Be The Glory
Sherri Burgess could be bitter but she isn’t. She writes to give God the glory. She is sad, she misses Bronner but she knows “Bronner hadn’t just ceased to exist, I knew he was somewhere.” Sherri Burgess is unbelievably positive. Her words and her attitude she accredits to God. He has helped her get to where she is today. He has been beside her every step of the way.
Sherri Burgess tells of all the good that has happened since Bronner’s death. She realises looking back, that she was only meant to have Bronner a short time. He is God’s child that she just ‘borrowed’. She writes to point people to Jesus. She talks to point people to Jesus. And she hopes that because of Bronner and the family’s closeness to God that more people will be in Heaven.
Everything Sherri Burgess states, she backs up with Bible verses. She realises that life is all about God and that we should all seek Him “… it is not about the good you can receive from God. It’s about God… don’t seek His hand, seek His face.” God wants a relationship with each and every one of us. The Burgess family have that relationship, without it, the tragedy would have destroyed them. They knew God before Bronner left them. They knew God even better afterwards as they leant on Him to survive knowing that “the pain of today brings the peace and purpose of tomorrow.”
I found the whole book incredibly uplifting and faith inspiring. Sherri Burgess states “it’s easy to worship God when He gives you everything you want… what’s hard is worshipping Him when He doesn’t.” How incredible is that? Life is all about putting God first. It is getting into His word. It is trusting Him with your children’s lives. “You can’t think your way to God. This is a matter of the heart.” And the heart that loves God and looks to God in all circumstances, can cope with life in partnership with Him.
I do not normally read nonfiction but am so glad that I picked this one up. Bronner sounds like a beautiful little boy. Bronner’s parents are brave and spirit filled. They believe “God’s provision is deep and wide, always giving us exactly what we need, exactly when we need it.”
This book has the power to change lives. This book has the power to change hearts. This book has the power to change eternal destinations. This book needs to be read.
God bless you Bronner. God bless your family. To God be the glory.
