Bertis Knight was a true Mighty warrior of the faith. We are going to miss our friend Bertis but I know that he is walking those streets of Gold with Jesus by his side. We thank the Lord for the 83 wonderful years of life that he gave Bertis and we thank the Lord for the last 13 years that Bertis and Sandra have been a huge part of Lonesome Road Ministries. Bertis shared his testimony several years ago and the CD is titled “A Glimpse of Heaven.” If you have never heard it don’t worry, we will be sending it out as our September CD of the Month. Bert got a glimpse of Heaven 30 years ago but on July 13th, 2021, Bertis got to go home to heaven and is enjoying the perfection he got a glimpse of thirty years ago.
Lord we thank you for allowing each one of us who knew Bertis to be able to call him friend. We thank you for your comfort and grace as you cover Bertis Knight’s family. We thank you God for your son Jesus Christ that it is through Him that we can have eternal life and a home in Heaven. We thank you for the anticipated reunion we will have in Heaven. We thank you for your Holy Spirit that will give us comfort, peace, strength to keep sharing the love of Jesus to all we come in contact with, So as it says it 2nd Corinthians Chapter 4 verse 16 – 18 therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is for a moment, is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen now are temporary but the things that are unseen are eternal.
I logged over 4 million miles as a truck driver from 1972 - 2007 and I have written a lot of it in my songs. God has taken me off the road and put me into full time ministry, but I still have a heart for all you drivers out there.
