Former President Jimmy Carter just issued a deathbed confession, and millions of Americans are shocked. The longest living former president in U.S. history has made headlines nationwide.
Delivering a church sermon, the spry 95-year-old spoke of his dire diagnosis in 2015 — doctors told him cancer had spread to his brain, and he assumed that he would “die very quickly.” But then he gave a perspective one rarely hears.
“I obviously prayed about it,” Carter said. “I didn’t ask God to let me live, but I asked God to give me a proper attitude toward death. And I found that I was absolutely and completely at ease with death.”
Carter went on to elaborate on how he was at peace about death — if it was God’s timing for him — even though he would miss family, friends, and his philanthropic work. He spoke as a man with spiritual eyes.
And this will be Carter’s legacy. While opinions are split on his time as president, there seems to be universal agreement that he is a good man, a Christian man, who has spent his life serving others above himself.
Even at his age, Carter is still helping to build homes for Habitat for Humanity. In fact, only a day after suffering a fall in Georgia, he returned to his recent volunteer work in Nashville for the organization.
