Mo’ passed away on Friday, March 5th after a valiant fight against stage 4 stomach cancer. The day that he passed, I drove around Katy with a cold bag of Chick-fil-a looking for a store to buy a plant to bring to Olga for an hour. Truth be told, I was searching for the words to speak to her. I was literally less than a mile from the Tobias' home and praying for the words to speak to Olga.
The next words that I heard on my radio were “It’s OK to cry” and “It’s going to be OK”. I drove up and visited with Olga and at some point, during our conversation, I told her about the song that I had just heard and didn’t know the name of the song or who sang it, but told her that it was OK to cry and it was going to be OK. It wasn’t until two days later that I heard the song again and learned that it “When We Fall Apart” by Ryan Stevenson.
After listening to the words of the song, I was convinced that this was Moises telling Olga that it’s OK to cry and it’s going to be OK. I later learned after visiting with Olga about Mo’s final months that he indeed repeatedly assured Olga, her mother, and Mo’s mother that it was going to be OK and that he had everything taken care of.
The words to these 2 songs are powerful for those that have experienced the loss of a loved one or are just going through a storm in their life. My prayer is that the words to these songs can bring peace and comfort to many as they did for me and Olga.
We serve an amazing God and I can only imagine the plans that He has for Mo’ in heaven!
