My heart quickens and so does my breath. My glasses fog up just as I glimpse a restroom sign on the door to my right. I duck in and pull my mask off and gulp in one deep breath, leaning against the wall. I almost entertain the idea of running away from where I’m headed; away from the doctor’s office and the impending procedure with its promised pain. Instead, in that quick moment, I gasp a prayer heavenward and immediately receive a dose of courage. I reset my mask and step out with renewed determination toward that which frightens me.

There is boundless wonder in every quick moment! Please share one of yours in the comments section below

Thinking I was dying when the surgery nurse put the mask on my face in 2007, I thought the next view would be of an angel explaining all those weird prophetic visions of Daniel, Ezekiel, Isaiah, et. al.. Instead I woke up to the beep-beep-beep of a monitor with Recovery Room ceiling tiles overhead. My first thought, “Well, crud, I’m still on earth!” Honest. 😉

I think that would be my first thought too. I am beyond excited to be in Heaven! But I, for one, am glad you’re still here. “To live is Christ, to die is gain.” Phil. 1:21. You are doing a good job of living and representing Christ, my brother!

Like John Newton, “I am not what I ought to be, I am not what I want to be, I am not what I hope to be in another world, but still, I am not what I once used to be, and by the grace of God I am what I am.”
