I don’t understand why God allows some of us to go on living for so many years while others are taken at an early age. It’s one of those mysteries that don’t make sense to me.
I do know that God has a purpose for everything under heaven. Perhaps the old among us are meant to be here to advise, encourage or strengthen those who are going through many of the trials we’ve endured. Maybe the young die so that their families become stronger through their passing and will be a witness to God’s compassion even during suffering. I know if I try to figure it out, I am also challenging God’s wisdom.
Lord, help me today to trust in you. Bring me closer to you through your Word. Prepare my heart and the hearts of all believers, for our final days on earth; so that we may be completely blessed by our future life with you in eternity. “No guilt in life, no fear in death; This is the power of Christ in me. From a life’s first cry to final breath, Jesus commands my destiny.” Amen!
