I devoted myself to study and to explore by wisdom all that is done under heaven. What a heavy burden God has laid on men! I have seen all the things that are done under the sun; all of them are meaningless, a chasing after the wind.
We only have today. Should God take you today, have you accomplished everything that you wanted to, needed to. Have you said all the things that needed to be said? Let’s have no regrets, let’s make sure we get to those things, so that when we’re standing before the Lord, the only thing we need to do is to worship him.. and not regret not getting to that thing on our to do list. Stop – go take care of that thing…. then, come tell us what you choose to share. Don’t embarrass yourself or any of your loved ones.
There are many things I would like to do before I meet God face to face, but there is one thing that I would really like to see done before that time comes. I want to see all my family come to Him. This is an ongoing process. I pray daily for those whom I am pretty sure don’t know His love and mercy. I speak of His grace at every opportunity. I try not to push, but there are some days when I feel an urgency to know of their salvation. I understand that only He knows the heart but it is so hard to think that when I leave this earth I may never see those I have loved for so long. I know that His Spirit is at work and that all I can to do is speak the Truth. He will do the rest.
Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
