Each year on the 17th day of August, I inevitably turn a year older.
I’m not bitter about it because I’m graced with the opportunity to glean
more wisdom, create more memories, and mentally write my own
personal book of, “life’s do’s and dont’s”.
Moreover, I am annually reminded that my time here on Earth is dwindling
away and that is out of my control.
This isn’t some cheesy reminder to, “cherish each moment”.
While that sentiment is precious and rings true, the purpose
of my words in this case is to serve as an urgent warning.
Time. Isn’t. Ours.
God has gifted us with just enough to fulfill the purpose He’s
created for us in our own personal, “book of life”.
Our time is to be used meticulously to serve our Heavenly Father who
controls the firmament and the Earth and also store up blessings
for our eternal home with Him.
We should love relentlessly and serve one another in obedience
We should constantly check our hearts posture to ensure it’s alignment
Do not squander your mist of life on things that will cushion your earthly
existence but cause your eternal one to lack the gifts God so desperately
wants to adorn you in.
