Life means losing

Enjoy prosperity while you can, but when hard times strike, realise that both come from God. Remember that nothing is certain in this life (Ecclesiastes 7:14; NLT).

The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised (Job 1:21; NIV).

The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).

**********************************

Lord,

Life means losing,
Bit by bit, 

All we believe to be 
In our domain:

Love, possessions, health,
And independence –

All will be lost,
Till you, alone, remain.
