Now what?

In an instant we were off the highway and into the large ditch median. How could something that seemed to start so quickly then seem to go on forever? As we rolled over again, and again, and again…glass shattering…horrible crunching sounds coming from every direction…my thoughts were not ‘take me home, Lord.’
Oh, it’s much easier to say, ‘I’m ready when you are, God’ until you actually face that moment. Then it’s a bit more…well, a bit more everything. When faced with your own mortality, you become a bit less flippant with your life. No. Knowing that each resounding crunch might be the sound of my husband’s life ending, or the signal of my own death, the terrified words out of my mouth were “Save us, Jesus!”

And He did.

The SUV was totaled. I had to be cut out from the passenger side. We had some scrapes, bruises, and a lot of aches.
We hadn’t hit anyone else. We both walked into our house that very night after a day at the ER.
WALKED.
Praise the Lord!

So.
What now?
God has given me more days. What shall I do with them? If He didn’t have things for me to do, I wouldn’t still be here, right? So, the question is, how do I honor Him with the extra time he has given me. I certainly don’t want to stand before Jesus one day and say, ‘Lord, I had a lot of fun playing games and watching movies,’ do I? How do I not waste any moments? How do I make the best use of each and every day He has so graciously granted? What do I do? How do I live?

Where do I go from here, Lord?


I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should Go: I will counsel you and watch over you. Ps 32:8

You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to Go and bear fruit – fruit that will last. John 15:16

Where can I Go from your Spirit? …your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. Ps 139:7,10

Therefore Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit Mtt 28:19
