Music news is buzzing today with the sudden suicide of Linkin Park frontman, Chester Bennington. Fans alike were shocked to hear the heart-breaking news. Even those who may not have known every lyric to every song, felt the sting.
Bennington was a rock superstar who took his own life at 41. If you’ve ever under valued the importance of a single day, this shocking announcement will put life into perspective.
God doesn’t promise us tomorrow and doesn’t even promise that this life will be easy. “Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” – Matthew 5:10
This scripture alone says that living for him and doing the right thing will be a struggle. Bennington may not have been a Christian living for God, but he felt the pain this world brings. He suffered from depression and couldn’t find his way out of the darkness.
But there is hope. God is life, love and everything you need. He will stand by your side no matter the circumstance. “The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” – Psalm 34:18
RIP Chester. You will be missed.
