This morning, for the first time in longer than I can remember, I attended my church's men's Psalms reading at 5:30 a.m. which gathering it holds nearly every Tuesday morning throughout the year aside from major holiday weeks. Not coincidentally, we read that passage at which point I smiled inwardly and later shared the relevance of the passage the day previous with my brothers this morning.
"I will not die, but live, and declare the Lord's works. The Lord has sorely disciplined me, but he has not stricken me physical death."
~ Psalm 118:17-18 (Kimicus ad Absurdum translation)
