As I sit in the hospital while my wife is having tests, I recalled the Scripture we read this morning before we left home:
"O LORD, make me know my end and what is the measure of my days; let me know how fleeting I am! Behold, you have made my days a few handbreadths, and my lifetime is as nothing before you. Surely all mankind stands as a mere breath! Selah Surely a man goes about as a shadow! Surely for nothing they are in turmoil; man heaps up wealth and does not know who will gather! "And now, O Lord, for what do I wait? My hope is in you. (Psa 39:4-7)
I am sure everything will be fine, no matter the outcome but it is a welcome reminder to read these words and remember how precious our eternal inheritance is.
