In 2020, everything in Tobin’s life changed. In God’s kindness, he was blessed with a wife. And then the whole world changed.
During the pandemic, many dreaded that certain text—the one where you learn that someone you were with has tested positive for COVID-19. In the summer of 2021, after a fun night of socializing with a few friends, Tobin got that text. Within a few days, he started to feel sick and continued to worsen until two weeks later, Tobin was unable to breathe and was admitted to the hospital. Even as a chaplain came to perform last rites and Tobin said goodbye to his wife over the phone, the Lord was with him, and he recalled John 14:6: “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’”
What a powerful reminder. What a powerful testimony. And what a powerful and sovereign God we serve. Today, Tobin’s life is forever changed, and we’re grateful to share Tobin’s message today that “God’s not finished with us yet, because we’re still here.”
