My life is short.
My life is fragile.
My life is a tiny flicker of light that can be extinguished in an instant.
This fact is more real to me since I hit an antelope while driving on a rural road in Wyoming last week. I had this exact thought when I realized I was going to hit him- “This could be it.” The end.
It wasn’t ‘it’ because the antelope bounced off and ran into the bush after poking a big hole in my car – which was still drivable.
It wasn’t ‘it’ but it could have been.
God tells us through Isaiah that ‘Surely the people are grass. The grass withers and the flowers fade but the Word of our God endures forever.” Isaiah 40: 7 & 8.
When I sit here with my Bible open on my lap, I am letting the only truth of all the ages soak into my mind. God’s Word has been the one thing that is right and good since time began. How amazing that this is so readily available to me every hour of every day!
How amazing that the Eternal Creator of the Universe speaks to me personally through these words!
How amazing that this entire book is a love story written to me by God. It’s God’s revelation of how much he loves me and you.
My life is short and fragile and just a small flicker of light in the big picture. I’m so glad that I know that my Father God sees me as his precious daughter who is so important to him that he made a way that I could live with him in my forever home in heaven.
My life may be short and fragile but I’m important to God….
and that makes all the difference.
Thank you, Abba Father.
