I shared this with someone I used to know, a while back. I was trying to explain how precious the moment was, how we miss the good stuff, and how drastically things could quickly change. So take to heart.......It’s REAL.
Heading home from Piedmont last night, I stopped for my daily food intake. I had went to visit a friend who turned drastically, deathly ill, in the blink of an eye honestly. While sitting in this drive through, my mind sorta went back a few years ago.
I will absolutely never ever forget a few years back the conversations I had, with a friend concerning life. Talked about living, we talked about dying.
Man we talked about pretty much everything in between too.
She had lost a buncha weight, ended up at Dairy Queen to “celebrate” with family, now she was obviously being funny, but truth is, while everyone else had the good stuff, she had a glass of water.
Very short time later.......massive heart attack, died instantly. Just like that, her life here on earth was over with. I’ll never forget that, and I can’t see a DQ sign, and not think about her, or the lessons I learned that day, as I stood and preached that funeral.
As I sit this morning, wiping the sleep out of my eyes, contemplating life, and all the what if’s of it........So much I want to do, to fill up that empty cup. Still gotta itch I wanna scratch, few empty places in that bucket. But the list is getting shorter, I’ll say that. Sometimes we all are guilty of looking to far down the road, when we truly just need to focus on “the now”.
Sometimes we overthink things, instead of just rolling with it. Some of my best rides in life on this ole Harley was when I just took off. No plan, no agenda, no direction, I just went.
Goes against everything this world tells us as far as planning ahead, planning for all the “what if’s”.
Listen man...........plan, and focus all you want, but when it’s time for you to leave Mother Earth, that’s it, it’s all over here. Plan for eternity, get that relationship with CHRIST right first, that’s the important stuff.
Listen, I’m a little chubby, but I’m gonna eat the ice cream, and I’m gonna enjoy it. And like me, love me, or whatever you want, but physically fit people get dead too, and don’t fool yourself in saying they live longer, car wrecks kill many.
This ain’t our home, it’s all temporary, ain’t none of us getting outta here alive. Seek the LORD and his direction for you, honor HIM, and enjoy the life GOD's given you, for in the blink of an eye it can, and it will be gone.
So maybe today pause for a moment, and rethink a few things. Think about the direction you are heading, and those around you. Learning from the past is ok, just don’t get hung up there.
Don’t miss a opportunity to love, and be loved. Life is a precious thing, and those moments ya just can’t explain ? They sometimes don’t come around twice.......just saying.
So do with it what you will, but for me ? I ain’t gonna eat the whole cake, but I’m gonna have a blame slice, bank on that mr.
Happy Full Throttle Tuesday
Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.
