On his show last night, Glenn Beck shared a very special video message that was posted on YouTube last month by 18-year-old Ben Breedlove, a brave young man who died on Christmas day (just a few days after uploading it). Tragically, Breedlove suffered a heart attack after battling a lifelong condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
Beck went on to call the video, which has been viewed by more than six million people world-wide, “one of the most powerful God messages that I’ve ever seen.” The recording, which deals with both personal and spiritual themes, is moving to say the least.
“Very few people even know half the story of [Ben's] life,” Beck said. “It is a remarkable story filled with hope and with love and with laughter and with grace and questioning. But in the end, it is a life full of miracles.”
He continued, discussing how Breedlove’s video is miraculously making an impact, while leading non-believers to God, across the globe:
“God is not sitting on the sidelines, but you have to be quiet enough and willing to see it and then stitch it all together. Someday soon, I hope to tell you the full story of Ben’s life and the message that he left that is now connecting with so many people around the world — especially young people — many of them who aren’t even religious at all. They’re stumbling across this video as it’s passed from person to person and they are learning from Ben’s story that there is a God, that he is good, that miracles happen.”
