“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” ~ Romans 6:23 (ESV ~ emphasis mine)
This post will be a little about my earthly dad. Yes, I am thankful for the life my earthly dad lived. Even though toward the end (at the tender age of 51), he suffered a lot, but he still lived life with cheer.
If you read my post this past Monday at Laced with Grace, not all people who are suffering live their life with cheer; they end it before it really started. My dad always you use to say “You are unique. Only you can do the things God set you out to do”. I couldn’t agree more. Although there are people with the same skills you might have, but only YOU can do them a specific way.
David is talking in Psalm 139 exactly about the same thing ‘I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made…’ (v. 14). Believe me, some days I wish our Lord would call me home, because life is just too stressful. But then again, I praise Him also for the days I am here; to share about Him and His unconditional love. Yup, I am thankful for life…
