A reminder for today
All of us must die eventually. Our lives are like water spilled out on the ground, which cannot be gathered up again. But God does not just sweep life away; instead, he devises ways to bring us back when we have been separated from him. (2 Samuel 14:14)
Absalom avenged his sister Tamar and ran away from Jerusalem. Joab asked a wise woman to speak to King David so that Absalom may return. Her words were so amazing that I just had to stop there for a moment.
She says that everybody dies eventually and that our lives are like water spilled on the ground. This is such an amazing comparison. We all know life is short, but we tend to forget it from time to time. When all is doing well and the worries of life a little less, we seem to forget that all of this is just a mere moment. But as soon as a life is lost we are instantly brought back to reality and we realise once again that our time here are a gift and that every breath we take must be done with gratitude and respect.
My dear friend, life is short and every moment passed is a moment closer to the end. Make sure that you are closer to God with every passing moment and do not stare yourself blind at the good times, but keep an open mind remembering that time does not stop.
So come with me and let us live every moment for God and let us not miss out on the wonderful blessing God has installed for us in the next moment by getting lost in the past. Live my dear friend, live and breathe life into every person and into every passing moment.
Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
