It's Not Guaranteed

We all know the one thing that is inevitable-death. Yet how often we live as though we are immune. We live as though tomorrow is guaranteed.

But tomorrow is not guaranteed, nor is making it through today. That is why making the most of each second, minute, hour, is crucial. Being conscious and aware that our life is like a vapor, here today and gone tomorrow, will awaken us to savor each minute God allows us to have. It will shift our focus off of ourselves and onto the things and people that matter the most. Our families, the lost, the widowed, the orphaned, the poor, the least of His.

It will revive us, challenge us, and fill us with thankfulness and joy. Why? Because when we realize at any second it could be over, we become mindful of our blessings. When we realize at any second we could lose someone we love, we become mindful and thankful for them.

Today, spend your minutes being thankful, prayerful and joyful. Ask the Lord to help you be mindful of how you spend your time today.

May we spend more time impacting others for the sake of Christ than we do on serving our flesh.

"How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog-it's here a little while then it's gone." James 4:14
