Our days are numbered in God’s timeline.
We don’t know how long, where or when, but we will all die.
There is no question about it. We have no control over it.
Consider these days He has given us as a time of grace,
A time to realize all the wrongs we have done
and to appreciate the gift of God’s sweet mercy.
For some it is a lifelong relationship where growth continues.
For some it happens after they’ve hit rock bottom,
For some it is revealed right before they take their last breath,
For others it is never realized.
But as it was with a condemned criminal on the cross next to Jesus,
The mercy of our dying Savior Is still available.
Our seconds, minutes and hours must become consumed with Him.
His message is satisfying food for those starving for it.
His Word can heal wounded spirits and renew hope.
His use of ordinary people to do extraordinary things is evidence.
His love endures forever!
These numbered days should be filled with thanksgiving and praise
To our God and King.
It is with Him that we can look ahead with anticipation
To life eternal, where time no longer exists,
Where death has been conquered and true life begins.
