Transcript of Memorial Service...
I just came across this last night. On Jason and Lindsay's memorial ministry site, Kids in Creation, there is a copy of the transcript (in PDF format) of the message given by Chris Cutshall, Lindsay's father. There is also an audio clip available (21.1 MB). I printed off the 7-page transcript and read it last night. I was moved to tears... not just by the fact that I feel such a loss in my heart that Jason and Lindsay were taken from us at such a young age... but moreso by the fact that I suddenly realized God's Hand in all that happens in every aspect of life. God knew that Jason and Lindsay were ready to come home and that it was their time to go. It made me realize how much I need to get my own spiritual life back in order. I have spent so much time... wasted so much time... worrying about things that do not matter. I have let Satan lead me astray in some ways that have damaged my heart and my walk with God. But that all ends now. Jason and Lindsay left a legacy and I am going to learn from how they lived their lives. It's time for me to renew my faith and to get things straight. I have always had faith and I have understood the reality of God and what He offers us... but I have also allowed myself occasionally to be tempted and manipulated by Satan who will do anything to cut us off from God. All that does is bring pain and suffering. God's Way is the only way to live a life with peace in your heart. Truthfully, I am SO much looking forward to the day that it is my turn to go home to see Jesus. I don't like how damaged and abused this world has become. It just breaks my heart! This world started out as a perfect Creation from God. It started out perfect and our (humanity's) choices have completely destroyed it. And yet God uses what He can... what we have left here... to show us what He's all about. He used the horror and tragedy of the murder of Jason and Lindsay to show us how to live by their example.
Please take the time to either read this transcript or listen to it. I promise it'll change your life. God knows what He's doing. Please learn from this that a Godly life is the only one worth living. We only have one chance to live on this earth... and how we live here determines where we end up for ETERNITY. Don't let worldly things and "values" to drive who you are and what you want. You can't take "things" with you when you die. The only way to live that is worth anything is to live for God and to let others know too.
Note: If you read the transcript, there are parts where things are in parentheses like (Baby Lindsay) or (Young Jason). I haven't confirmed this but I think those were descriptions of the photos that were being shown at the moment that Pastor Cutshall was reading that portion of the message. Just a "heads up." :)
