Being a Light, Believing is, Grateful

… But Did You Die?

Yesterday, I noticed that a good friend of mine posted an image on her Instagram.

The image was the picture below, that says, “… People talk about my driving, but did you die?



I chuckled, laughed, and liked the post.

In the quiet, I reflected and thought of all of the things I’ve complained about; things that I heard other people complain about.

Failing tests/papers/classes, being broke, car accidents, being in bad relationships, being sick, being diagnosed with deadly diseases or ailments, being raped, being hurt, spraining both ankles, spouse cheating  … So many things things that may make you wanna cry for days.  Idk,  maybe you did cry for days.

-But as people of God, at the end of the day, we are not dead; the Lord has given us a way of escape!

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it (I Corinthians 10:13).

-At the end of the situation, He has delivered us!

O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation, thou hast covered my head in the day of battle (Psalm 140:7).

-He is our refuge and our strength and our help!

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble (Psalm 46:1).

God is saying that He has saved us for a time such as this! Stand up straight, put your head up, and walk on. Don’t waste your life. God has given you a second chance, now do something with it!

I am humbled and honored to say, that I have been through a many things but, no, I did not die.

I am not minimizing the significance of what happened, but I give God glory for seeing something in us and for saving us for a time such as this.  I give God praise for his love, grace, favor, and mercy.  I am thankful for his patience, and kindness for these things are overflowing and unmerited.
