This past week I was reminded again of the fraility of life. I attended a funeral of an infant that was born perfectly healthy and contacted a viral infection and died after two weeks of life.
I thought to myself, how fair is that. Some people get to live a long time while others barely get to experience life at all. Even though some things in this life just don't seem to make any sense at all, I remind myself that God is in control and I need to put my trust and faith in him. I found this poem which helps me realize no matter what we face, we can still praise God.
I Still Will Praise Him
If I never see another dayOf sunshine here on earth,I still will praise the great CreatorWho gave to me new birth;And if I never see a brilliant moonOr sparkling star again,I still will praise my Heavenly FatherFor His great love for man.
When dark clouds hover all around me,And I can see no light,I just turn my eyes upon JesusAnd everything looks bright;In the midst of darkness and sorrow,He undergirds with care,And I can face each new tomorrowJust knowing He is there.
God’s great kingdom shall ever prevail,No matter what may come,And His people are ever secure,Abiding in His Son;He is my Refuge, Hightower, Strength,Great Redeemer, and Friend;Though the mountains tumble to the seaAnd all around caves in…I Still Will Praise Him!
