THAT MOMENT

There is no way to plan for it.
It comes suddenly, THAT MOMENT.
And you are then rendered fragile.
The surprise is much like a man
 
cutting himself after years of perfect shaves.
I mean, what man plans to do that?
Exactly. But suddenly the taste of
mortality runs red down his
 
neck and in THAT MOMENT he knows,
even if he is commonly dull, that his
footing in this world is no longer sure.
THAT MOMENT, while shock,
 
can be salvation if he’ll swallow it.
For it holds sudden forgiveness, not only for
himself but others. Then he can descend.
He is not a god. He is vincible.

    Profound.
    While I’ve never thought of myself as invincible, I had thought at this point God might give me another 20 or 30 years on this earth. Then last winter I landed in the hospital with pneumonia, and was suddenly faced with my own mortality. Many people die from this.
    It is sobering. It may come sooner than we think. Every day coram Deo – by His grace.

    “THAT MOMENT, while shock, can be salvation, if he’ll swallow it.” Wow. so true–He’s God and we’re not.
