If Today . . .

Two different friends made two different posts this morning about dear friends of theirs that passed away.

Both ladies are in their 40’s.

I am 48 . . . and couldn’t help but think how quickly our life could be over.

I am thankful for life today.

From the moment we are born we are one breath closer to death – one breath closer to facing our Creator.

Do you know Him?

Do you know Him more than just a word that follows another four letter word?

Do you know Him more than slang . . you know . . . the big guy upstairs?

Do you know Him – personally and intimately . . . as Lord?

Life truly is a vapor.

We can plan and anticipate but we never know when we will take our last breath.

Just last week the headlines were all focused on a sports hero that died while the others that perished in the same tragedy barely made the news . . . each life lost was a tragedy and painful to the loved ones left behind.

No one in that helicopter or family left at home anticipated the events of the day.

I wonder if they would have done things differently had they known their lives were coming to a fatal end that day or were they living their life to the fullest of their abilities given by the Lord?

That’s a tough question for anyone – one I have to ask forgiveness from often for not seizing the moments. But it’s one we must look at and self evaluate.

If you don’t know Jesus as your Lord and Savior I want to invite you to Him today.

The scriptures say in Romans 10:9 & 10 if you confess with your moth, “Jesus is Lord” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. One believes with the heart, resulting in righteousness, and one confesses with the mouth, resulting in salvation.

Do you believe that?

If you don’t you can know Him – invite Him in to your heart today.

I’d love to hear from you and help you in this decision. Feel free to message me if you’ve made this decision or need help with it.

Lord God, it is my heart’s desire to hear you say, “well done good and faithful servant” at the appointed time I stand before you. I don’t want to waste a single moment you’ve given me. Quicken me to seize the moments you place in front of me. Use me . . . today . . . to make an impact on the lives you need me to touch. Thank you for pulling me out of the pit of despair. Thank you for accepting me and loving me exactly like I was and exactly like I am but thank you, also for continuing to grow me into your image. Forgive me when I fall short and look the other way. Use my pain and mistakes as stepping stones and for your glory. I pray for those that don’t know you and may be reading this. Bring them to a saving knowledge of you. Show them today you are with them and can use their life for your glory. Amen.
