Nearly died today

No joke. I nearly died today but God kept me safe.

I usually wear my headphones while walking into my office. Today, for some reason, I had taken them off before I boarded the bus. As I was approaching my office, I heard a rustling sound, I looked up and a giant tree branch fell at my feet. MISSED ME BY XXX MUCH. Drop bears are quite common in Australia. This was a pretty close call, the branch was longer than my torso. Without even being shaken, I moved to shove the branch out of the path and bystanders helped me move this large branch.

I have traded my life- all of it to God. I have surrendered my all, and in return, God has given me a life I am not worthy of. Safety and peace that I could never imagine. And I will continue to trust in Jesus as my Lord and saviour - even if my future appears to be uncertain, even if I cannot see when I will finish my PhD, where I would work after graduation, whether I will actually meet my future partner soon, whether I will have a family of my own. All this, I have surrendered and let go of. For God continues to show me each and everyday that he is faithful. 

Actually, we are faced with these near death experiences all too often. I have the assurance of eternal life- BUT DO YOU? What would happen to you if you died today?
