Recently i’m in touch with deaths again. My father’s best friend has passed away, and i just heard of a stillbirth case.
It’s heart-breaking, heart-wrenching, and really hammers in the fact that life is fragile and fleeting. Very fragile and very fleeting.
The deaths leave families and love ones baffled and clueless with a million questions in the mind/heart, which ever is the faculty of thought. It brings in the sovereignty of the Lord, on how He gives and He takes away, and why He does what He does/does not. “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter.” (Proverbs 25:2)
Yesterday in my wrestle with God regarding my uncle’s death, the Lord spoke many comforting and assuring words. Amongst them one stood out: “My child, let Me be God.” As i continue learning to yield to Him in full surrender and trust, i sing to Him with refreshed and renewed conviction:
this alabaster jar / is all i have of worth / i break it at Your feet, Lord / it’s less than You deserve
here i am, take me as an offering / here i am, giving every heartbeat for Your glory / take me
this time that i have left / is all i have of worth / i lay it at Your feet, Lord / it’s less than You deserve
