What If "What If" Happens?

In making plans for our lives, we try to prepare for "what if." What if this happens or that happens? We never really think it will happen, but what if?  What if the thing that you fear the most happened?  What if "what if" really happened?

Sometimes we are totally blindsided by events.  Some things we cannot prepare for. We might have insurance, 401k's etc. to help prepare for some things, but who can prepare loss of possessions from a tornado, or the physical ravages of a chronic or terminal illness, or loss of limbs in war or accident, or the emotional damage resulting from a death of a spouse or child or something unimaginable?

"What if" happened to Job when he lost all his riches, possessions, businesses, children within a day, and then lost his health (be sure to read the last chapter of Job for the end of the story).

"For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me." Job 3:25 

Some people fear death more than anything.  It is their "what if." What if death came to your door today?  Are you ready? "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23 

"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. " Romans 10:13
