Some time ago a friends sister who is diabetic was driving on the road with her husband when all of a sudden she had a seizure. The car spun out of control and hit a truck. In an instant her husband was dead and she in the ER trying to hold on to life while left with the knowledge that “only if she had not driven her husband would still be alive”.
So, I had been pondering a lot on life and death, our short time while here on earth and what we will do with that short time allotted to us.
This illustration is dedicated to her as is our prayers.
Sometimes I wish the following verses were not so popular, then it would not be so quickly breezed over. This Psalm speaks of life, death, time, value, hope and trust in God even in the times of greatest of fear and hopelessness.
1 The LORD is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
3 He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD
