In the Blink of an Eye by Penny Chavers

What can happen in the blink of an eye? . . . . just like the wind, we cannot control . . .


What can happen in the blink of an eye?  In the blink of an eye, you can lose everything you own through a disaster like a tornado.  A tornado can come up so fast and furious that you have little or no warning.  It can rip right through your home and destroy everything.  In the blink of an eye, your life can be snuffed out in a car wreck on the highway.  One wrong move or wrong decision while driving can cause you to swerve into an oncoming vehicle or vice versa — someone can swerve into you.

There are so many things that we do not have complete control over — no matter how hard we try.  Our life is but a vapor — just like the wind — we cannot control where it goes.  Only the One who made the universe and everything in it can control what happens in this life.  That is why we need to pray to the only one who can control events and circumstances in our lives.  Otherwise, we are at the mercy of these events that can happen in the blink of an eye.  Should we just leave everything to chance?  Or should we pray and put our trust in the One who has the power to control these things?  If we submit our lives to Him, Jesus, our Savior, then there is one blink of an eye that we can look forward to.  When He comes back for us, we can be changed in the blink of an eye — changed from corruptible to incorruptible — changed from darkness to light — and we can live with Him forever and ever.

How awesome is that????
