Praise for the Life & Courage of Zac Smith

by Lee Buford on May 16, 2010

I was incredibly saddened to hear the news of Zac Smith’s death today. I know he is with Jesus now, and he is no longer suffering, but it still hurts to lose a man like this.

I first heard the news (or saw it) via a Twitter post, then saw the following tweets from Perry Noble and Mandy Smith, Zac’s wife:


While I never met Zac Smith, I was so inspired by his story after seeing the following video, and his journey prompted me to write this blog post on suffering well. His story is a blueprint on the subject! If you haven’t watched the video, please take a few minutes to do so…you will be inspired by his commitment to praise and point to the glory of God, no matter the circumstances.

To Mandy and the kids, your husband and father had a tremendous impact on the lives of those around him…many of whom, like me, he never even met.Your Christian family will continue to pray for you in the days to come, and may all of us follow Zac’s example as we encounter trials in the future.

To Him be the glory!
