Loss Of A Son


Welcome GOD TV, this is Dr Chauncey Crandall. I’m a cardiologist, I’m a physician and I’m a believer in Christ. You know all of us in our past have had bad experiences and I want to quickly tell you about one of mine. You know my 15-year-old son was very sick for four years and he had Leukemia and I battled that disease with everything I had in me, but the only relief I had was when I ran to Jesus. And then, one day, that son of mine, Chad, passed. I was in the hospital and I was so angry at God. You know, I wanted to run from Him. I said, “God how can this happen to this child if I have been with you and I’ve called upon your name? I don’t understand it.”

Maybe you’ve been hurt in a similar way? But I called on Jesus and I wanted to turn from Him and I said that day, “Lord, I have to make a decision. Either I turn from You or I turn to You.” And, that day, after going over my life and realizing that God was there during different steps, I turned to Him. And, guess what happened, joy came to me, after the loss of my son. It took time, but the joy came back, and life came back into me after losing that precious child, and that can happen to you too.

So if you’ve been hurt in any way, if you’ve lost a family member, I would ask that you would call on Jesus now. He can restore you. He can mend your heart. He can take away all the tears. Can we call on Him now like I did that day? Say, Jesus I come to you now, restore me, and come to me with the power of Your Holy Spirit. Come to me like you came to Dr Crandall and you took all the hurt away. I ask that you would do that for me now, Lord Jesus and I ask that in Jesus Name. Give me freedom and give me peace in Jesus Name, Amen.

    Amen! Thank You Abba God almighty for the gifts of Your Holy Comforter that restores us & grants to us much of Your freedom & Your peace all while removing all of our heart aches & all of our pains allowing us to press on towards the mark of the high calling. We pray this all in the name of Jesus, Amen! 🙂

    • Amen. I am so sorry for your loss. We never stop missing our children, but with God He gives us the comfort and peace to go on. My step son, who was like my own, who I loved so much, was murdered in 1980. There is not a day that goes by that I do not think of him. But I have peace knowing that he is with the Lord and someday I will see him again. He received the Lord into his heart only a week before that happened. Only God can comfort us, and He does not fail to do so. Someday you will see your precious daughter again and it will be a joyous reunion. Until then, our God takes us through with His love and peace, and yes, He also gives us joy to continue in our life journey. It is ok to laugh again, it is ok to feel peace and comfort. Amen.

  2. Thank you for this, my daughter has estranged herself to us , which in some ways I think is worse than losing someone to dying, because at least there is some closure. For me there is a never knowing whether she will ever forgive and come back to us. And she has taken my darling grandson away as well, so I never get to see him too. It’s a terrible burden to bare, but I have and will continue to hand her over to our precious Father. Thank you for the encouragement.
