Brian's Story, Jesus and his Card file

 

This story was added 2-28-03 and was submitted by Phil Sisson

Makes you think!
This is a long one, but please take the time to read it.  It is so good!!
Subject:  The Room
17-year-old Brian Moore had only a short time to write something for a class. The subject as what Heaven was like. "I wowed 'em," he  later told his father, Bruce. "It's a killer. It's the bomb. It's the best thing I ever wrote." It also was the last.

Brian's parents had forgotten about the essay when a cousin found it while cleaning out the teenager's locker at Teays Valley High School in Pickaway County. Brian had been dead only hours, but his parents desperately wanted every piece of his life near them, notes from classmates and teachers, his homework. Only two months before, he had handwritten the essay about encountering Jesus in a file room full of cards detailing every moment of  the teen's life. But it was only after Brian's death that Beth and Bruce  Moore realized that their son had described his view of heaven. It makes such an impact that people want to share it. You feel like you are  there." Mr. Moore said.

Brian Moore died May 27, 1997, the day after Memorial Day. He was  driving home from a friend's house when his car went off Bulen-Pierce Road in  Pickaway County and struck a utility pole. He emerged from the wreck  unharmed but stepped on a downed power line and was electrocuted.

The Moores framed a copy of Brian's essay and hung it among the family portraits in the living room. "I think God used him to make a point. I think we were meant to find it and make something out of it, " Mrs. Moore said of the essay. She and her husband want to share their son's vision of life after death. "I'm happy for Brian. I know he's in heaven. I know I'll see him. 
 

Brian's Essay:
The Room...

In that place between wakefulness and dreams, I found myself in the room.  There were no distinguishing features except for the one wall covered with small index card files. They were like the ones in libraries that  list titles by author or subject in alphabetical order. But these files, which stretched from floor to ceiling and seemingly endless in either direction, had very different headings.

As I drew near the wall of files, the first to catch my attention was one that read "Girls I have liked." I opened it and began flipping through  the cards. I quickly shut it, shocked to realize that I recognized the names written on each one. And then without being told, I knew exactly where I was.

This lifeless room with its small files was a crude catalog system for my life. Here were written the actions of my every moment, big and  small, in a detail my memory couldn't match. A sense of wonder and curiosity, coupled with horror, stirred within me as I began randomly  opening files and exploring their content. Some brought joy and sweet memories; others a sense of shame and regret so intense that I  would look over my shoulder to see if anyone was watching.

A file named "Friends" was next to one marked "Friends I have betrayed."  The titles ranged from the mundane to the outright weird. "Books I Have Read,"  "Lies I Have Told," "Comfort I have Given," "Jokes I Have Laughed at." Some were almost hilarious in their exactness: "Things I've yelled  at my brothers." Others I couldn't laugh at: "Things I Have Done in My Anger", "Things I Have Muttered Under My Breath at My Parents." I never ceased to be surprised by the contents. Often there were many more cards than I expected. 

Sometimes fewer than I hoped. I was overwhelmed by the sheer volume of the  life I had lived.

Could it be possible that I had the time in my years to fill each of these  thousands or even millions of cards? But each card confirmed this truth.  Each was written in my own handwriting. Each signed with my signature.

 When I pulled out the file marked "TV Shows I have watched ," I realized  the files grew to contain their contents. The cards were packed tightly, and  yet after two or three yards, I hadn't found the end of the file. I shut it, shamed, not so much by the quality of shows but more by the vast  time I knew that file represented.

When I came to a file marked "Lustful Thoughts," I felt a chill run through my body. I pulled the file out only an inch, not willing to test its size, and drew out a card. I shuddered at its detailed content. I felt! sick to think that such a moment had been recorded. An almost  animal rage broke on me. One thought dominated my mind: No one must ever see these cards! No one must ever see this room! I have  to destroy them!" In insane frenzy I yanked the file out. Its size didn't matter now. I had to empty it and burn the cards. But as I took it at one end and began pounding it on the floor, I could not dislodge a single card. I became desperate and pulled out a card, only to find it as strong as steel when I tried to tear it.

Defeated and utterly helpless, I returned the file to its slot. Leaning my forehead against the wall, I let out a long, self-pitying sigh. And  then saw it.. The title bore "People I Have Shared the Gospel With." The handle was brighter than those around it, newer, almost unused. I pulled on its handle and a small box not more than three inches long fell into my hands.   I could count the cards it contained on one hand. And then the tears came.

I began to wee! p. Sobs so deep that they hurt. They started in my stomach and  shook through me. I fell on my knees and cried. I cried out of shame, from the overwhelming shame of it all. The rows of file shelves  swirled in my tear-filled eyes. No one must ever, ever know of this room. I must lock it up and hide the key. But then as I pushed away  the tears, I saw Him. No, please not Him. Not here. Oh, anyone but Jesus. I watched helplessly as He began to open the files and read   the cards. I couldn't bear to watch His response. And in the moments I could bring myself to look at His face, I saw a sorrow deeper than  my own. He seemed to intuitively go to the worst boxes.  Why did He have to read every one? Finally He turned and looked at me from across the room. He looked at me with pity in His eyes. But this was a pity that didn't anger me. I dropped my head, covered my face   with my hands and began to cry again. He walked over and put His arm around me. He could have said so many things.! But He didn't  say a word. He just cried with me. Then He got up and walked back to the wall of files. Starting at one end of the room, He took out a file  and, one by one, began to sign His name over mine on each card. "No!" I shouted rushing to Him. All I could find to say was "No, no," as  I pulled the card from Him. His name shouldn't be on these cards. But there it was, written in red so rich, so dark, so alive. The name of  Jesus covered mine. It was written with His blood. He gently took the card back. He smiled a sad smile and began to sign the cards. I  don't think I'll ever understand how He did it so quickly, but the next instant it  seemed I heard Him close the last file and walk back to my side. He placed his hand on my shoulder and said, "It is finished."   I stood up, and He led me out of the room. There was no lock on its door. There were still cards to be written. "I can do all things through Christ who  strengthens me."- Phil. 4:13 "For God so love! d the world  that He gave His only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life."

If you feel the same way forward it to as many people as you can so the  love of Jesus will touch their lives also. My "People I shared the gospel with"  file just got bigger, how about yours?

IF THERE IS ONE EMAIL THAT I HAVE READ THAT NEEDS TO GO AROUND THE WORLD, IT IS THIS ONE, PLEASE PASS THIS  TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW, CHRISTIAN OR NOT!  "LET'S FILL OUR OWN FILE CARD" AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
