One minute you are alive and here and the next moment you may be gone.
Of one thing I am absolutely sure. Death comes to all.
We have a stretch of highway near our town that is notorious for fatal accidents.
Last Saturday, I myself was almost killed on that road. I pulled out after checking to make sure nothing was coming. The traffic lights were in my favour so I was sure it was safe to go.
A semi was approaching slowly from approximately 100 metres away which encouraged my confidence. Unfortunatly another driver sped up and overtook, swinging into my lane and collecting my vehicle.
It all happened in a moment..... in what felt like an instant.
Even now, one week later, I shake my head in wonder.
I am still here.... and my life continues.
Why was I spared?
I don't know?
But I do know, I might not have been....
Not so for a young nineteen year man, a couple of days later.
He'd only just earned his Provisional Licence the day before. I say earned because it's a long journey of lesson hours with a log book before the final Testing.
If after that 'Provisional' year you get through without a blemish, you may proudly pocket a Regular Licence.
He pulled out as I had, failing to see a Road Train (Double Semi) approaching.
In a *FLASH* his car was torn in half, and his spirit departed.
I cannot imagine the despair his family felt when informed?
The shock, the disbelief, the grief!
He was only nineteen!
Why him? Why not me?
I know I am ready to go!
I have a strong faith and no fear. I have led my life.
I married, gave birth, watched my children grow, returned to my profession and continued my education. I am now retired. I have travelled and I have done, much with my life...
It just goes to prove. Death can come at any age.
Life sits on a precipice of time, where there are, no boundaries.
We all need to ask ourselves, "Am I ready when my time comes?
How do I stand with God?
Have I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savour?
Or do I THINK, I have Plenty of Time."
John 3:16, deliver's a Message.
"For God So Loved the World, that He Gave,
His One and Only Son.
So that, whoever (Truely) believes in Him,
shall not Perish (go to Hell),
but will have, Eternal Life (In Heaven)."
