"So take Aaron and his son Eleazar and lead them up Mount Hor. Remove Aaron's clothes from him and put them on his son Eleazar. Aaron will be gathered there; Aaron will die." (Aaron was 123 years old when he died on Mount Hor."(20:26)
Even when we have faith and know without a doubt where one in Christ will go - death is hard......Bittersweet.
The other night as I was falling asleep, I was thinking about the fact I am on the downhill side of life. At times it scares me, how quickly time flies - the years. It motivates me to get my life organized - my home, etc. It gives me a sense of urgency to look/act on opportunities and Divine Appointments He puts before me. I look and see all of the "Moses" He has put into my life and heart, making this climb with me.
I remember in 1989, while living in Kearney, MO, God suddenly weighed upon my heart for days to call my cousin, Cyndi. I hadn't spoken to her in years and although I didn't have her contact information, I had ways of obtaining it.
We discussed in Bible Study last night what tool in His tool box do we think we are. I feel it depends on the season, the job, the need, is what determines the "tool" we are. As I age, I pray I do not ignore His urging and am the whatever and however needed "tool" for Him. I pray I will choose to be His tool to others, so they don't have to climb through this life alone.
Everyone will die.
