As we journey through this life, loss will be here to accompany us for the duration of our stay. There are many different forms of loss, but the loss that we are all in association with is the physical aspect of loss, which is death. From birth we are groomed for loss, we lose the comfort, warmth, security, and the nutritional value that the womb provides. Once the umbilical chord is severed, our journey towards independence after dependence begins. Our eyes wide open to the great unknown, the unfamiliarity of our surroundings make us cry out loud in desperation, for we are now alone. At this infant stage of our development we are in a state of vulnerability, the state of being exposed to the possibility of being attacked or harmed, either physically or emotionally. Instead of writing unconsciously for the next three minutes building up to the climax of my thoughts, I’ll get straight to the point! God had you when you were all alone, when you were most vulnerable, the only difference between then and now is that we are liable for the choices that we choose to make, for we are no longer infants, that insurance policy is no longer valid. We have insurance for our health, house, car, and this life, but what many of us fail to realize is that those are considered short-term life policies. The insurance that I have the world knows not of, for I have a long-term spiritual life policy that only the the Lord can provide.
“What kind of insurance do you have?”
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through the fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.
