Having had the occasion to face death, I have considered the reality of it and resigned myself to it as long as it is the will of God. Since God has chosen to preserve my life, I accept every day as special, given of God for His purpose to be worked out in my sphere of influence.
Only with the continual work of the Holy Spirit can I accomplish His purpose for me. I realize it is my choice that determines who drives my will.
