Blink of an Eye

I found out yesterday that a colleague died suddenly.

I knew him well enough and had just seen him a few months back.

When someone dies, I always think about the last conversation I had and if I would have said anything different. In this case I remember hearing about the joy of being a grandfather and being encouraged in life and ministry with words of wisdom from a faithful servant.

I didn’t know him all that well or him, me but everyone he talked to was a friend and he had a way with words and a caring heart.

This song kept popping into my head as my day went on…

“In The Blink Of An Eye”
Mercy Me

You put me here for a reason
You have a mission for me
You knew my name and You called it
Long before I learned to breathe

Sometimes I feel disappointed
By the way I spend my time
How can I further Your kingdom
When I’m so wrapped up in mine

In a Blink of an eye that is when
I’ll be closer to You than I’ve ever been
Time will fly, but until then
I’ll embrace every moment I’m given
There’s a reason I’m alive for a blink of an eye

And though I’m living a good life
Can my life be something great?
I have to answer the question
Before it’s too late

Cause in a Blink of an eye that is when
I’ll be closer to You than I’ve ever been
Time will fly, but until then
I’ll embrace every moment I’m given
There’s a reason I’m alive for a blink of an eye

If I give the very best of me
That becomes my legacy
So tell me what am I waiting for?
What am I waiting for?

In a Blink of an eye that is when
I’ll be closer to You than I’ve ever been
Time will fly, but until then
I’ll embrace every moment I’m given

In a Blink of an eye that is when
I’ll be closer to You than I’ve ever been
Time will fly, but until then
I’ll embrace every moment I’m given
There’s a reason I’m alive for a blink of an eye

“I’ll embrace every moment I’m given.” We ARE here for a reason, to love as we have been loved.

Thanks, Mike, for being a great example of that for me and for so many others.
