Numbering our days reminds us that we’re creatures who have been allotted a short time upon this earth. I don’t want to waste the little time I have. I want to spend my life fulfilling the mission God has given me. We need to regularly take our shoes off and feel the earth between our toes. To wander through cemeteries and ponder all those who have gone before us.
This is exactly how Dad lived his life.
Never wasting an opportunity to serve.
Fully aware of God’s sovereignty and how he fit in the grand scheme of things.
The wonderful reality is our stories are not really our stories; they are God’s. This reality loads our lives with meaning and frees us from the exhausting task of trying to feel important.
The God we serve is a magnificent, breathtaking, mind-befuddling combination of love and power. He is not part power and part love. He is not sorta loving and sorta powerful. He is omnipotent and omniloving.
