And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. (Genesis 2:7)
Have you ever thought about a lifetime? Is it days or weeks or years? One lives to be 98, another lives only to 45, another only to 2 months: yet each lived a lifetime.
Whatever the length, a lifetime is all we are given. For each one, God has a purpose. “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” With our finite minds, we cannot understand, but with our hearts, we can believe.
“Now we see through a glass darkly…” Now we can only believe by faith.
