With you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light. Psalm 36:8 NKJV
From where you sit, life stretches out further than the eye can see, You have so many hopes, so many dreams, so many things you want to do and accomplish. You’re so eager to get started, it’s hard not to wish away the present. You want to be finished with school, be out on your own, get your career rolling, and maybe start a family. It seems forever before life gets going for real. For some people, that constant sense of waiting makes them feel that they’re just killing time. When you have that attitude, there’s little urgency motivating you to get serious about living for God.
You have to remember, however, that this earthly life is only the very beginning of your real life, your whole life. You are going to live forever. Even if your earthly life lasts a hundred years, it will still seem only a blink in the vast sweep of your eternal life.
But what an important blink it is! The decisions you make in this life will echo throughout eternity. It’s vitally important that you invest the years and days and minutes you’re given in such a way that they’ll pay off in eternity. Are the things take up your time and energy and resources really going to last? You may feel as if you have nothing but time. You can always get serious later about the things of God, right? No, the time is now. It’s time to get serious about investing your life in what really counts.
If live the life he gave me, God will turn it to his use.
