My time left on earth may be less now than what I have lived already. There may be less of a future to look forward to than a past to look back on. While that may be a scary thought to some, I have peace for my future. So there is no fear. Yet it is still profound.
I have been asking myself what have I done with what God has given me? To begin with He has given me the truth, the truth that has set me free. Have I shared that truth? Or have I stayed away because of fear of what others think or that they will reject it.
If you alter or obscure the Biblical portrait of God in order to attract converts, you don’t get converts to God, you get converts to an illusion. This is not evangelism, but deception.
– John Piper
As I watched Billy Grahams’ 95th birthday special The Cross, I realized how many he touched because of his love His love for them, and his love for God. I need not fear rejection and fear because God ultimately knows the outcomes of each person’s decisions on this earth. If I love God I will share His message knowing the outcome is not about me. It is all about Him.

How could I not share this truth? Do I really have love if I don’t look into the eyes of another soul created by God and keep silent? There is only one truth. And it will set you free.
Christ died for all men not just the ones you know and like.– Anonymous
I am choosing to change the way I live. To live as if I am dying tomorrow. Truth is, I just may be. We never are guaranteed one more minute. If you were to die tomorrow, did you share the Truth? Or do you even KNOW the Truth? Do you know where you will be going after you die? I used to lie in bed as a little girl and those thoughts would terrify me, but not anymore…
I need to stop living in fear of what others think, and live this ONE life I have been given. I need to follow what is best for my family and to follow God’s leading in every decision. The future in getting shorter and shorter here in earth, and I don’t want regrets. I want to arrive in Glory looking my Savior in the eye knowing I lived a life that was pleasing to Him. I do not live to please man, but to please God.
Too many Christians are no longer fishers of men but keepers of the aquarium.– Paul Harvey
So many people are hurting in this world and living in darkness, and I am not doing anything about it. I must be more intentional. I love more boldly. I must get rid of all that distracts from my purpose, and truly live for Him.
