Life is short, guys

We never know when our time on this earth is up, only the Father knows. Earlier today, my friend and I went to an accident site, where one of her friends died. And it struck me that the victim of the crash could have easily been me or my friend and that experience made me realize how short this life really is.  Now I hate to think about death and dying, but the message needS to be out there.

Life is too short everyone, we don’t know when our time has reached its limit. There is no way to know when we are going to die. Maybe if the doctors give us 3 months, but still God is the ONLY one who truly knows.

The only thing we can do while we wait to join the party up in Heaven, is follow Jesus’ commands stated in John 13:34-35

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

He says love one another as He has loved us. How does he love us? Unconditional love. Love that no matter what happens He always loves us.  Christ loved us so much that he died for us.

“‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”” John 10:27b

We need to show that kind of love to our neighbors. Who are our neighbors? I would say that our neighbor is anyone we come in contact with. Even though we might strongly dislike them, the same Savior died for them, the same God created them in his image.  So, I leave you with three simple words

Love one another.

Strong Enough by Matthew West

“You must
You must think I’m strong
To give me what I’m going through

Well, forgive me
Forgive me if I’m wrong
But this looks like more than I can do
On my own

I know I’m not strong enough to be
everything that I’m supposed to be
I give up
I’m not strong enough
Hands of mercy won’t you cover me
Lord right now I’m asking you to be
Strong enough
Strong enough
For the both of us

Well, maybe
Maybe that’s the point
To reach the point of giving up

Cause when I’m finally
Finally at rock bottom
Well, that’s when I start looking up
And reaching out

I know I’m not strong enough to be
Everything that I’m supposed to be
I give up
I’m not strong enough
Hands of mercy won’t you cover me
Lord right now I’m asking you to be
Strong enough
Strong enough

Cause I’m broken
Down to nothing
But I’m still holding on to the one thing
You are God
and you are strong
When I am weak

I can do all things
Through Christ who gives me strength
And I don’t have to be
Strong enough
Strong enough

I can do all things
Through Christ who gives me strength
And I don’t have to be
Strong enough
Strong enough

Oh, yeah

I know I’m not strong enough to be
Everything that I’m supposed to be
I give up
I’m not strong enough
Hands of mercy won’t you cover me
Lord right now I’m asking you to be
Strong enough
Strong enough
Strong enough”

Need a daily reminder I am NOT strong enough, but “I can do ALL things through Christ, who gives me strength.”-Philippians 4:13
