Most of us live rather easy lives. We have comfortable existences with little fear, our most pressing choices being what's for dinner and what's on TV. But the truth is, tomorrow hangs in the balance for all of us. Whether we are 9 or 89, the future is not promised to us. God can choose to take me home in an instant, healthy as I am, as quickly as He can take someone who suffers with a terminal illness. He alone numbers our days.
Sarah directed my attention to the current situation of Tricia and Nathan Lawrenson through a sanctity of human life post on Nathan's father's blog. Reading of their faithfulness has humbled me, showing me how little faith I really have in this God Who supplies all our needs according to His riches in glory. I encourage you to read their story, be in prayer for them, and learn a bit more about trusting God from them.
