The older I get, the more I realize that time goes quickly and that I’ve probably been alive longer than I will live. That thought spurs me to rethink my life and the way I’ve been living. For all these years I have been taking advantage of time, not realizing that time is precious and we shouldn’t waste it. Our flesh is finite, we’re not going to live forever in this state of being. I’ve made some changes that will give my flesh the best life possible and to help me to stop striving. You have a choice, either build on a future that is sure or continue to strive for the fleshly life that is not promised. What is sure? The word of the Lord! Build your hope on the promises of God. We are like grass or the flowers of the field, one breath from the Almighty and we are gone! This flesh is only temporary, we won’t live in it forever. Build your hope on nothing less than Jesus. Decide today to concentrate on your infinite life.
The grass withers, the flower fades when the breath of the LORD blows on it; surely the people are grass. The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever. Isaiah 40:7-8
