I let my mind wander back to another time I heard those words. It was such a long time ago and so much had taken place since those days. I wondered what would have happened if my life had not taken this path? But I didn’t like to think about that for too long. I knew that the ‘other life’ would never have happened. God had me in his hands and I’d always been there for as long as I could remember. I had strayed off the path now and then but always came back.
‘Come, let us bow down in worship, let us...’
The pastor continued the reading and for a moment I was brought back to the present. But as he continued my mind wandered back again, over the events of the past 18 years, to a time when I knew God had given me another chance, to a time when he had healed me from an illness that could have taken me away from this life. When, if it had not been for the grace of God, I might not have seen my girls grow up into the beautiful young women that they are today. The thought that I might not have been here for Chrissy who so needed a close bond with her mother brought a lump to my throat and I thanked God silently for giving me life and allowing me the gift of watching my girls become the people they now are.
‘...for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care’.
‘Thank God I am one of those people’ I thought as I turned my concentration to the teaching for today.
Psalm 95:1,6,7 NIV
