Our lungs expand and collapse as the oxygen sustains life in our bodies. We give it no thought. We inhale. We exhale. It is a natural reflex. Absent of trauma or illness, it takes no effort on our part. One day, however, we will exhale, and the air will no longer fill our lungs.
Beautiful sleeping baby
first restful night
quiet morning light
exhausted, he will not wake
One true love
officer at the door
knees hit the floor
A wife- mother- grandmother
family and friends
a full life ends
We cannot know when that last breath will come, whether for ourselves or for those whose lives are precious to us. If we could know, would we live our lives differently? Would we comprehend the finality and feel a sense of urgency to know, and to share, Jesus? How much time would we spend considering eternity?
Hebrews 9:27-28 (MSG) Everyone has to die once, then face the consequences. Christs death was also a one-time event, but it was a sacrifice that took care of sins forever. And so, when he next appears, the outcome for those eager to greet him is, precisely, salvation.
Father in heaven, with each breath, may I feel Your presence. May I grasp the urgency of the world's need to know you. Please give me the words to share Your love with the lost. And help me to be obedient to the leading of Your Spirit.
