Blessed be the name of the Lord

Today, I am reminded how short life is.

A family from my church was on vacation at Disney World with some of their relatives. News from the mother came this morning that her five-year-old nephew was found dead, face down in a swimming pool. {please be in prayer for this heartbroken family}

This story has haunted me all day. At any moment, the Lord could call anyone home. Aren’t you thankful that our God is sovereign over all His creation? Every single little happening is perfectly planned. Every thing is in His hand. He knows what He’s doing.

The Lord gives, and the Lord takes away. Blessed be the name of the Lord. My prayer today is that I won’t take  anything for granted. Not food. Not warmth. Not family. Not life.

Blessed be the name of the Lord.

For I am SURE that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor any powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.  –Romans 8:38-39 (emphasis added)
