Life is Precious

The king shall have joy in Your
strength, O LORD;
And in Your salvation how greatly
shall he rejoice!
You have given him his heart’s
And have not withheld the request
of his lips. Selah

For You meet him with the blessings
of goodness;
You set a crown of pure gold upon his
He asked life from You, and You gave
it to him-
Length of days forever and ever.

(The first four verses of Psalm 21)

Today (Thursday, 14th July, 05) at mid-day, while in Tesco’s shopping, every single person stood still for two minutes, as in solidarity we waited in silence remembering those who had their lives snatched from them by the London bombers a week ago. What did they achieve? Families mourn, children have lost their fathers and mothers; children have been killed and maimed, but significantly, the Nation was united in condemnation of the atrocity and outraged by the senseless act of the bombers.

Life is precious, every minute of it, no matter what condition we find ourselves in, whether in good health or bad, in joy or sadness.

“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6)
