The Best Insurance


As unpredictable as the weather are the events in our lives;
A cloudless sky today, a raging storm tomorrow;
Sense of stability followed by an overwhelming despair of loss;
From being a self-sufficient house-owner to that of a struggling tenant;
From being filthy rich to being miserably poor;
Being hired one day, then fired the next;
From being healthy to being terminally ill;
Shocking how one can turn from being fully parented to being orphaned in a twinkle of an eye;
Or to become childless in an instant; the examples are endless;
The ups and downs of life are what make life as uncertain as we fear;
No one is immune to the surprises life’s circumstances spring up on us;
These are nothing but tests to rob us of our joy;
Because when your source of joy is stolen;
Your direction depends on wherever the wind blows you;
Like a leaf fallen off its branch; your end…is unknown;

Your joy is safe in the Lord…where no moth or rust can destroy;
Where no thief can find to steal;
Companies promise insurance against life’s eventualities;
But the best insurance one can have is to entrust yourself in Him;
He never fails.
