God looked down after creating man and knew that one day He would call His child back home to be with Him again.
So, God looked and said, “I need someone who is willing to work seven days a week, give unselfishly, cry when their hearts break from what they see, someone who is willing to love and give themselves unconditionally” and God said this child will be a Funeral Director for my glory.
God saw that He would need a Funeral Director that would be willing to stop what they were doing no matter what time it was and go when they receive the death call, someone who would push their plate away from the table, look at their spouse and children as they leave and simply say “God needs me”. God needed someone who would put their dreams on hold to finish what God has asked them to do so He made a Funeral Director to help take care of me and you.
God needed someone He could trust with His children at the very end of their journey here on earth. So, God looked around and found those He would call His Funeral Directors. He blesses them with strength, energy, love, patience and joy in the most heartbreaking moments to help families who are broken with the loss of the ones they love. He sees the pain that their hearts carry when they witness the tears fall from the families God blesses them to help. And that’s when God whispers in the Funeral Directors ears “I’m right here with you”.
God looked down on His Funeral Directors when they face extremely hard days, when they question why they are in the end of life ministry. God seen them on the days when they had to stand strong as they laid their own family to rest in the grave. When they went back to the office and shut the door and hit the floor and cried because they couldn’t hold the pain anymore. That’s when God said, “My child great is your reward for the love that you have given and the burden you have carried, your pain has not gone unseen.” So, God made Funeral Directors who would love unconditionally and give all they have to His children at the very end of their journey.
