This was my original post for January 1st, but it will be the second one for the New Year….
…12 I know how to live humbly, and I know how to abound. I am accustomed to any and every situation—to being filled and being hungry, to having plenty and having need. 13 I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. 14 Nevertheless, you have done well to share in my affliction.…
Paul’s letter to the Philippian Church chapter 4 verses 13-14
It’s New Year’s Eve, as Mary and I sit waiting for our hotel room to be ready, I see people who are also waiting. It looks like some people have been waiting here for a while. They are asleep in corners of the lobby waiting for four o’clock to get here soon.
The way that they are just lying around or sitting doing nothing makes me think about how precious and fast life is.
Time is but a fleeting moment. One minute you are young and viral, ready to take on the world, the next minute you are face to face with your Creator. Not that my life is at its end because I’m still young enough to set a few more life goals. But, one never knows when your time to pass from this life into the next is. The Bible states that tomorrow is not promised to any person.*
Some people live life-like they have a ton of days still and waste the preciousness of it all. When people get to the point that I mention above, you know the point where you’re hitting your late 40s or are in your 50s, you understand. This is the point where some people realize that their lives have passed on by quickly
This is where a good percentage of people go through what people call a mid-life crisis.
This mid-life crisis is something that can be avoided by knowing in what stage or period of time your life is in.
On my next post, I will write about goal setting. How to make sure that what God has placed in your heart is indeed coming from God or if it is just a passing fancy of yours. Hint..read Matthew’s gospel chapter 6 verse 32 and beyond…
