Each day that we awaken we have the opportunity to appreciate the gift that has been given to us. There are no certainties for today and there are no guarantees for tomorrow. To wake up is a gift from God because we have all done something in the previous day that would merit our total destruction. Sins ultimate payoff is death but God’s mercy gives us life. Just to be able to read these words has afforded you the chance to exclaim how wonderful it is to be here on this side of life and for those of us who are of the household of faith we shout with a voice of victory knowing that our future has been secured by Christ.
