Obituary

Let not your heart be troubled; you believed in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 

(John 14:1-3) 

 

STAY CALM IN YOUR HEART... AND CARRY ON!    Having experienced trouble in His own life, the Lord Jesus knows that we all have trouble. He was not rebuking a lack of faith when He said, " Don't let your heart be troubled, " but He was offering a reasoned alternative. Jesus promises a place, a purpose and a plan all dependent on His person. Your troubled heart should be calmed by the assurance that He is able to do all that He has promised you. Your part is to confidently act on His promises. 

Obituary

 

George Anthony Canady was born in Emanuel Co., Swainsboro Ga. on May 28, 1970, to the late Otis Canady Jr. and the late Betty Jean Spikes Canady. He departed his life on September 19, 2021. He was one of eight children. George was raised by his late Great Aunt, Dora Wilchard and late Great Uncle, George Wilchard in Swainsboro, Ga.  At an early age, he accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior.  George later moved to NortheastToccoa, Ga and became a member of Cross Roads Baptist Church where he sung with the United in Christ Male Chorus. After a few years, George found himself back in South Ga working for C.L. Barrett Service Station in Midway Ga.  He then moved his Church membership to New Zion Baptist Church of Riceboro Ga.  George was a gentle giant.  He loved his family, loved to laugh and joke around and mainly, singing.  Any chance he got he would sing for anyone who would want to listen.  He did it for the love of their reaction.  Most importantly, he loved singing for the Lord.
