Obituary

John Franklin Cornelison, 58, of Marianna, Florida, went home to be with the Lord Thursday, December 28, 2017, at his residence.
John was born May 17, 1959, in Graceville, Florida, to the late James Arbery Cornelison and Ann Adams Cornelison. He spent most of his life being loved and cared for by the wonderful people of Sunland Training Center in Marianna Florida. John, John, as they called him, had a sweet disposition and beautiful loving blue eyes that would brighten any day when he looked at you. He was definitely one of God’s angels on this earth, to his family, and all who knew him.
He is survived by his sisters and brother, Cinda Trexler of Panama City, Florida, Julie Thomas, of Panama City, Florida and Jim Cornelison of Morganton, North Carolina.

Message:

Philippians 3:12–14 NIV84
Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
John John has recieved that prize.

Ability is Overrated

Ability is Overrated

Ability is overrated! Adam and Eve were perfect beings and they squander it way for food. Samson was the strongest man to ever live but ended up as a slave. Jonah was one of the greatest prophet of his time but disobeyed God and found himself in a belly of a great fish. The Disciples were hand picked by Jesus but all left him to die alone. Ability is overrated.
Hollywood gives us the best of the best in acting and beauty, but many of these actors lives are broken. Ability is overrated!
Sports gives us the best of the best in athletic, but once many of these athletes walk off the field, there lives of broken. Ability is overrated.

Disability is Overrated

Moses has a speaking disability and God used him in a mighty way to free His people from Egypt.
Jeremiah, the weeping prophet, to carry his word to His people
Elijah, the prophet who called fire down from heaven battled depression and wanted to die.
Jesus when feeding the multitudes use a young boys lunch box that only had five loaves of bread and two fish.
Paul, had a thorn in the flesh that the Lord refuse to remove, but God used him to take the Gospel to the know world of his time.
Disability is Overrated.

Jesus is not Overrated

John 3:16 NIV84
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Jeremiah 29:11–14 NIV84
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.”
We put too much faith in our ability. Solomon calls it meaningless.
We put too much faith is our life.
Ecclesiastes 3:19–20 NIV84
Man’s fate is like that of the animals; the same fate awaits them both: As one dies, so dies the other. All have the same breath; man has no advantage over the animal. Everything is meaningless. All go to the same place; all come from dust, and to dust all return.
Eccl. 3:19
At Mrs Ann Funeral I read this passage:
Philippians 3:12–14 NIV84
Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
John John has recieved that prize.
Who we are created to be in not found in this life or this world.
1 Corinthians 15:42–44 NIV84
So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.
1 Cor. 15:42-44
1 Corinthians 15:52 NIV84
in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.
1 Cor. 15:
