If Today Was Your Last Day
Most of you probably already know, but there's been this guy that spent all of his life's savings advertising the end of the world, May 21, 2011, and 6:00 PM. True, it's only 5:15 when I post this...but in all other parts of the world, the 6:00 PM time zone has come and gone. Of course, this isn't the only reason I think the world will not end. The Bible says clearly that NO man knows the time - not even the Son of Man. Further more, the world will not end with the church being "raptured" out.
No one knows the hour. It comes "As a thief in the night".
I was talking to dad about it earlier, and he simply said this,
"The world ends when you breathe your last." Very, very true. The world ends, but eternity does not. I was sitting outside this evening on the swing set, going back and forth, back and forth, going over my Bible verses, thinking, and talking to God. My world could very well end today. My world very well almost ended for sure that I know of a couple of days ago. We barely missed being in a head on collision with another truck that was pulling out. And when I say barely, I mean by inches. As I sat there swinging, I was going through a song I heard called "If Today Was Your Last Day" by Nickelback. It's a very good, true song. (Just DON'T listen to any others by that group - I haven't looked into it, but I've seen the title of a few of their songs - and they're NOT good! I think that's practically their only good one!) If today was my last day, I'd want it just like it was today. I'd spend it with my family and my dear friends. That's what I'd do. One of the lines is "would you live each moment like your last". Shouldn't we live everyday like our last? Not let the sun go down on our anger? Remember that our breath is so frail, that at any moment...it could indeed be our last?
This "end of the world" deal was just another foolish thought of man...but it sparked good head conversations within me. I thought about it a lot. If today was my last day, I'd spend it happy. I'd spend it with my family. I'd spend it with my friends. I'd spend it thinking, smiling, and praying. I never know when today will be my last. No one knows. But they should live like it. We don't know when God will call us to Him.
God is absolutely SO amazing. I've had the BEST few days! I was checking how long three weeks will be on my calendar - and they will FLY! I can't believe it's already the end of May... on the 29th, my Big Boy will be a year old! He's growing up! *faint* I'll schedule a post to go out for him... ^.^
If today was my last day...I'd spend it like this. (With the exception of having my friends with me...they weren't here today!)
Delve into your thoughts - how would you live your last day?
