A Sobering Thought

Jan 5, 2009

The other morning I woke up in the mountains & prepared to meet with God for the day when THIS thought hit me…

“This year you’ve been out of high school 20 years!”

Seriously…you could have knocked me over with a feather.  I sat motionless in bed & nearly lost my breath!  I could not shake that thought for the rest of the day; in fact, I have been obsessed with it since.

Twenty years ago…it doesn’t seem like it has been 20 years.  Seriously…time has FLOWN by…I can’t wrap my mind around the fact that I have now lived over 37 years.

AND…in 20 more years I will be staring at 60.  SIXTY!!!  WOW!!!  If the next 20 pass as quickly as the past 20 then 57 will be here before I know it.

Honestly…I’ve been pretty pumped up since I feel the Lord revealed that to me because I honestly think that the next 20 years are going to blow the past 20 years out of the water.  I seriously think that all that has happened in my life so far has merely been a foundation to what God wants to do in my future.

I have NO DESIRE to hit 57 & sit around and talk about what I wish I would have done!  I’ve got one shot at this thing called life, God has given me gifts and resources to steward…and I want to HONOR HIM by living, not merely existing on this planet!

Life happens…and I will either watch it pass by, wishing I could do more…or I will either SEIZE each day like it could be my last and go all out to serve my King!
