Bethel Music artist Kalley Heiligenthal has chosen hope and gratitude after requesting global prayers for her two-year-old daughter’s resurrection.
“I can access the searing shock of the last couple weeks and stop there, but if I push one step further, 2019 is overwhelmingly saturated with treasured memories I would never trade and will fight to cherish. So I choose tender thankfulness,” she said in a vulnerable Instagram post.
Olive, Kalley’s daughter, was found not breathing in early December and later declared dead by doctors. But the musician and her husband issued an urgent prayer request for her resurrection.
But, after a week, the family decided to hold a memorial service and funeral for Olive, Faithwire reports.
“As for the future, as I feel the noble aching lack of her not with us for a lifetime, the better truth is I can look just beyond and know so vividly that this life is only a breath, and for all eternity we’ll be close again,” Kalley said in her Instagram post. “Jesus bought that for us. So I choose triumphant thankfulness. And the more I do it the more I feel it. There is a heaven that is ore real and vivid than what we have here and it’s pressing in on us. Jesus is alive, Olive is alive in Him, so we press back and life fully alive too.”
