People get sick… we know that, can see it all around us…. sometimes you browse through the Facebook news feed and suddenly you are struck by another person battling diseases or tragic events. As it’s someone else’s life, you comment with a sad emoji or a short message.
These things happen to other people … not in the own family circle.
My uncle recently passed away, brain cancer… the word no one wants to be associated with..
Very sad indeed…
The bomb shell really came Friday though…. my father in law…. lung cancer…
how is that even possible.. he does not smoke… never ever smoked…
Incomprehensible… and sad
Jesus told us the story about the little birds… those no one really notices anymore.. they are not colourful or rare… He said ‘look at those birds… they don’t worry about tomorrow.. they don’t worry where their next meal is coming from…’
‘Please you do not worry either… The Father knows you’
These are the words of Tommy Walker on the song ‘He knows my name’
I have a Maker
He formed my heart
Before even time began
My life was in his hands
He knows my name
He knows my every thought
He sees each tear that falls
And He hears me when I call
And the YouTube clip:
Life is tough sometimes… all you want to do is curl up and let the day pass…. no matter how unexpected life can be and no matter what each of us is going through… He knows us! Our lives matter!!
We do not know what the future holds for my father in law…
All we can do is pray..
