The uncertainly of life

September 23, 2008

Reading Ecclesiastes always trips me out.  It reminds me of my smallness, and it reminds me of the uncertainly of life. 

Ecclesiastes 9:12 Moreover, no man knows when his hour will come:
       As fish are caught in a cruel net,
       or birds are taken in a snare,
       so men are trapped by evil times
       that fall unexpectedly upon them.

As a father verses like this mess with my soul, as I want to provide a layer of safety and protection to my girls, that I know ultimately I can’t give them.  At the end of the day, their life is in God’s hands, not mine. 

God protect my family, certainly on this earth, but protect their eternity, give them what I cannot, Your Spirit, and the surety of heaven.
