Where are you going?
I’ve had so much I’ve wanted to post but so little time to do it! I start class on Monday and I’m so excited to finally start my journey of studying ministry! Tonight as I think about all we’ve been through this week I can’t help but think about my whole life, my senior year, all middle school and high school.. how easy all of that can just end. When I got the phone call about Collier Ann I immediately thought of James 4:14 “..life is like the morning fog- it’s here a little while, then it’s gone.” I think about how 8th grade seems like just yesterday and how finally being family with Collier Ann and Morgan feels like two days ago. Everything just seems so fast and I think about all I haven’t done and all I could have done in all this time of life. That’s satan, he wants us to think about every could, should, and would when God wants us to think about every did, can, and will. One of my favorite quotes is “The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present, and I don’t want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future.” -Aubrey Hepburn. Do what you can right now, make the right decisions right now. Don’t wish for your decisions to be better tomorrow, make the better decisions today. All you have is today. Make it count because life is like a morning fog, we’ve all driven in the fog.. what happens to it, it disappears. It’s here just for a little while, then it’s gone. I’ve heard life described as a play date, our time on Earth is like a quick little play date while God is getting our place ready in Heaven. Our time here compared to our eternity in Heaven is a blink, a fog, a moment.. what’s more important a moment or an eternity?
Where are you going? Your right now determines that. Not your past, not your future. Your right now.
