Our Life Can Change Without A Moment’s Notice- and we often forget…
It is early for me and I need to write, so I am writing here to talk a little about Life and Change. It is of such truth that our life can change without a moment’s notice. Without a second’s notice, and without time to think about what is happening.
It seems that there is so much pain in the world from many different sources. Some of it is far away, some of it close to home. Of course, that which affects us the most is that which is close to home and is that which offers change to our life. It is evident that our life can change without a moment’s notice.
When we are young and busy with our daily activities of a job, a growing family, and just life, we do not seem to see just how quickly life is passing. As we age, every day is a blessing, and it becomes, even more, a blessing if we are healthy and still have our spouse.
We are more than blessed if we have children who have managed to grow into adulthood without major drug, alcohol, or major relationship problems. Then if we have not had death touch, our immediate family are among the rare and should leap for joy.
If we can manage to live comfortably and not be in poverty with the economy, which afflicts this nation now, we are truly blessed. However, even if we are short on some things in life, we know that we will not be forsaken or left without God sending us an angel.
When We See Pain For Others
When we have friends in pain, it flows over to our hearts and it causes us to wake in the early morning to try in some way to understand just why and how God works in the many different ways that he does.
Not just in another’s life, but our own as well. There are many things, which God allows that we will never understand, but we must know that His ways are not our ways, and He always knows best.
No, he does not want His people to suffer or have such pain, but life is about living, and then dying, and nothing will ever change that fact.
We are born to die as depressing as that sounds it is the truth. Therefore, we accept, pray, become wiser, and believe that all things work for the good of those that trust in a Heavenly Father.
Even when we see someone, we care about dying from an illness before what we think is time. We still must accept that God sees the now, and the future.
He was privy to what might happen that would destroy a person later in life. He wants every one of us to wake up someday in a place where there is no death, no suffering, and joy beyond our imagination.
When we see a child who may never see his teenage years, we begin to wonder why God has let us live so long, and yet he would take a child who has practically never lived, never committed sin, never failed Him. It goes back to the same rule of course and that is that He knows more than we do. We must trust Him, strive to be better humans, and keep working for peace in a world of confusion.
God’s Heavenly Thoughts Are Not Our Thoughts-Nor His Ways Our Ways
No, I do not question God’s heavenly ways; however, yes I do wonder and try to make sense of things that are far too high in heavenly ways than what my simple heart can understand. It is at times like these we learn yet again that life is changing.
“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven; A time to be born, and a time to die; a times to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.” Ecclesiastes 3:1-10 (KJV)
