I've heard it said that our lives are only to be lived until our purpose is carried out and that's been a comfort in times of fearing a premature death. How about when someone feels they've accomplished all they ever were going to and can see no future opportunities to be of service and only become a burden to others that increases as time goes on? What if 'the miracle' already happened and there is nothing conceivable to look forward to?
I understand God is the ultimate decider of how many breaths each living thing gets. The existential crisis has passed, pro tempore, but I'm curious about others' thoughts on it
