A moment of clarity

I wanted to take a moment to remember the fragility of life.

We often go into the world assuming we will return safely to our home and loved ones. But over the last 48 hours I am reminded God has a bigger plan for it all.

Please, when you leave your house today- remember it may be the last time you do so. Give your loved one a hug and kiss and tell them how much you love them. It may be the last time you get to do so. And if God's will is that you return to your humble home, say a quick prayer of thanks that He has given you another moment with those who you love the most here on earth.

Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT) For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

It doesn't always seem like a time to hope, but God can see far beyond what we can imagine.

Here's to you Nathan- may you rejoice in Heaven with God the Father for the rest of eternity as he smiles at you and says "Well done, my good and faithful son." We will see you someday when God calls us home as well.
