My life is short.
My life is fragile.
My life is a tiny flicker of light that can be extinguished in an instant.
I was strongly reminded of this again two weeks ago when my husband had emergency open-heart bypass surgery after experiencing a ‘lethal event’ with his heart. It could have easily killed him. That could have been it. The end.
He’s still alive because it just wasn’t his day – the day God has already chosen for each of us as our last day here on earth.
That wasn’t ‘it’ – he’s still here – 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!
It’s available to you, too.
How amazing that the Eternal Creator of the Universe speaks to me personally through these words!
He wants to speak to you, too.
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 how much he loves you.
My life is short and fragile and just a small flicker of light in the big picture. I’m so glad I know 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.
He made a way that you could live with him forever in heaven, too.
My life may be short and fragile but I’m important to God….
and that makes all the difference.
Thank you, Abba Father.
