Dear God ,
I am suppose to be old, and wise with years of experience behind me.
Today my life is just as if I were taking my first steps. As my body wears out and my steps slow, you are needed even more than when I was a child.
You give parents to children to encourage them, to care for them. At this time I guess my faith should be strong enough to depend on you only. Jesus our saviour, my helper, and you are just a prayer away.
I know that you have a purpose for leaving us on earth even when we are no longer able to help myself. Perhaps it is to show me that I was always dependant upon you, but never realised it until my body no longer can be independant.
Help me to use this time to be an encouragement to others. The less capable I am the more others can see you. You are my strength now like no other time in my life. You send that helping hand, that encouraging word, and give hope for a brightener tomorrow.
Thank you Lord for the care and fellowship you are to me.
As I write the final chapter of my life, keep me close to you and do not allow me to become self-centred. Take control in all of those areas my body can no longer find strength to function. Let others see your strength and the grace you have given me in my lifetime.
In your time, let me come home. In eagerness, I await the new body you have for me. Oh that I might praise you eternally
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
