Veteran gospel icon Reuben Kigame has narrated how he thought last night was his last time on earth after he had a health scare.
Read his post below.
LAST NIGHT I HAD A MINI SCARE. I THOUGHT I WAS GOING. IT’S NOT THAT I AM SCARED OF DYING. MY HOPE IN CHRIST IS MORE SECURE THAN INSURANCE AND MY PLACE IN HEAVEN MORE CERTAIN THAN BANK SAVINGS. THAT IS WHY I PREACH AND SING THE GOSPEL: THE GOOD NEWS THAT IN THE CROSS OF CHRIST SINS ARE FORGIVEN AND IN HIS RESURRECTION DEATH IS CONQUERED. I HAVE HAD SOME HEALTH ISSUES RECENTLY, BUT THIS WAS THE WORST NIGHT SINCE 2017 WHEN PNEUMONIA ALMOST TOOK MY LIFE. AS I PREACHED TO MY FAMILY THIS MORNING, I COUNTED MY BLESSINGS ONE MORE TIME. LIFE, GOOD HEALTH, AND STRENGTH IN THESE BODIES TO KEEP GOING AND TO DO WHAT WE DO ARE REAL BLESSINGS WE TAKE FOR GRANTED SO EASILY, ESPECIALLY WHEN THE ROUTINES ARE ROLLING ALONG.
This is social media, so I write with full knowledge that I am saying what I am saying to some real genuine friends who really love and appreciate me, but also to many, many cynics as well as enemies of my causes, some who certainly wish I had disappeared from the earth many years ago. Some of you will read this and simply hit a Like or, as many of my Christian friends do, simply write “amen” and move on.
So you will go to a restaurant and order your favorite meal, a mug of tea, shake, or coffee; you enjoy every bite or sip and thank God you can afford it, but quite easily you may have forgotten how many people can afford such and more but have to be fed intravenously!
“But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard-pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.” 2 Corinthians 4:7-9
THINGS MAY NO LONGER BE THE SAME. DUE TO HEALTH AND ECONOMIC CHALLENGES, I HAVE TO SLOW DOWN CONSIDERABLY THIS YEAR, BUT I WILL NEVER STOP SERVING MY MAKER AND ALL OF YOU WONDERFUL PEOPLE MADE IN HIS IMAGE. I HAVE CHALLENGES WITH MY VOICE NOW AND TRUST GOD FOR FULL RESTORATION, BUT I WILL NOT STOP SINGING OR SHARING HIS TRUTH – SPOKEN AND WRITTEN. I AM THANKFUL THAT CHRIST CHOSE AND SET ME APART TO WEAR HIS NAME AND BE AN AMBASSADOR OF HIS TRUTH. I AM ALSO THANKFUL THAT I COULD EVEN WRITE THIS.
