Right now I am feeling a bit bothered and in disbelief. A friend of my family has past away in the most bothersome way. No one ever thinks about dying nor thinks about a loved one dying, but it can happen in an instant.
GOD does not tell us when are time is but does give us the chance to make our lives mean something. He gives us the opportunity to walk down a path where we can be happy and content in his hands. Now, I am not trying to preach to anyone but if you think about it, how much better would life be if we left everything in God’s hands. God does not want us to suffer. He did all of the suffering for us.
Back to our family friend… He was alive one moment and the next he was gone. It takes my breath away how God can take a life…just like that. It reminds me of how speacial our life is and how much we should thank God for all of the blessings be brings us. Blessed to wake up this morning, blessed to have our families with us, blessed we have a home, blessed we have the ability to work…the list goes on.
Now I am not saying that we are not blessed when a family member passes but we should be blessed that God allowed us to spend time and grow up with these people. God lends us our bodies but once it is time to go, it’s time to go. I see it this way…at least our family friend wont have to be on this earth where there is war, violence, sinning, etc. Now he can be with God, in peace. I see that as a blessing.
Although this friend will be missed and yes it is so sad and a horrible feeling, but now we have to move foward because our time is coming also and we need to thank God for all of the blessing he’s given us and make sure we walk with him, because when that moment comes and no matter how I go, I want to go with God to a place full of love and peace.
May God continue to bless you all!
