一夕間失去妻兒 美小聯盟投手:那已經在耶穌裡睡了的人,神也必將他們與耶穌一同帶來

美國維吉尼亞州8月27日發生一起家庭滅門悲劇。效力於蒙哥馬利餅乾隊(Montgomery Biscuits)小聯盟投手布雷克·畢文斯(Blake Bivens)的25歲妻子愛蜜莉(Emily Bivens)、1歲兒子庫倫(Cullen Bivens)及岳母瓊(Joan Bernard)遭到18歲小舅子槍殺。

據Christian Today報導,這場兇殺案讓布雷克一夕之間失去3位家人。案發後他在IG上痛心表示「當我知道他們離我而去時,我的心化成了灰燼,無法用言語形容」、「我的生活被摧毀了。我無法想像未來的日子沒有他們陪伴該怎麼辦」。

日前,布雷克在IG上以一封「已故的愛妻,天堂生日快樂」的信寫道:「艾蜜莉,妳是在世界上遇到最美好的妻子與母親⋯⋯謝謝妳的愛及善良造就了現在的我⋯⋯我渴望再次把妳和我們的男孩抱在懷裡,但我很高興,現在你們一家人團聚在天堂。」

最後,他感謝上帝:「謝謝上帝,賜予我在這個世界上美好的家庭,我真的很幸運。」布雷克坦承,面對這般的錐心之痛,很難專注於感恩。然而透過寫信給已故的妻子中表達對上帝的感恩;他也堅信,與家人的分離不是結束,而是「短暫的中斷」。

「不久的將來,我們將在天堂相聚,所有的人將永遠與上帝同在。在那之前,我會繼續追求進入天堂為我最終的目標。」布雷克強調,絕不讓仇恨奪去心中的盼望,唯有感恩才能帶走苦毒,「我們不會讓魔鬼得勝!」。

兇殺案主嫌、艾蜜莉的弟弟馬修(Matthew Barnard)最後以三項一級謀殺罪遭到起訴。

當想起摯愛的家人時,布雷克以《聖經》帖撒羅尼迦前書4章13-14節的經文禱告:「論到睡了的人,我們不願意弟兄們不知道,恐怕你們憂傷,像那些沒有指望的人一樣。 我們若信耶穌死而復活了,那已經在耶穌裡睡了的人,神也必將他們與耶穌一同帶來。」。(艾以琳/綜合外電報導)

It’s been a month since both of you went home to Paradise to be with Jesus. I spend most of my time imagining what both of you are seeing and experiencing. As my tears fall, I remind myself of what the apostle Paul said in first Thessalonians 4:13-14 NIV “Brothers and sisters we do not want you to be on uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him”. For me this is not the end but only a brief interruption. One day soon we will have a magnificent reunion and all of us will be with the Lord forever. Until then I will press on to the ultimate goal of spending eternity in Heaven. My family and I would like to thank everyone across this country who has prayed for us and sent words of encouragement our way. I also want to thank the baseball community; The love and compassion we have felt has been unbelievable. It truly feels like we are one big family. Thank you @ourbaseballlife for everything you have done to support us during this time. I also want to thank the @raysbaseball for their continuous support through all this.
