All of our days are numbered

October 13th, 2010

Several years ago my wife and I were watching some moles I have had on my back for a number of years to see if any of them change colour or shape. This is what we have been told to do as changes in moles can be a sign of skin cancer.

We noticed a couple of them had become darker in colour and had possibly changed in shape and size too. We decided that I should go off to the doctors just to be sure nothing is wrong. The doctor said that I should have them removed just to be sure and have them tested. I was booked in to have this procedure done.

For most of us the natural tendency is to worry and wonder if you have cancer and if you will require extensive treatment. I have to admit that this had crossed my mind momentarily. I wouldn’t be human if it didn’t! But in the midst of these thoughts I quickly realised that God is with me and all of my days are numbered by Him.

None of us can add a day to our lives by worry or by doing anything else. Psalm 139:16 says, “You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed”.

For me this thought is a great comfort and allows me to trust God. I know that no matter what happens to me in this life, that my life and all of my days are in God’s hands and I won’t go home until He calls me there.

God Bless,
