Your Lifespan


Seasons in Life


For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time, and then vanishes away.

The Apostle James hit the nail on the head with that statement. We are here and then we are gone. Unless we have made a statement of remembrance after three generations we are at best a footnote in history.

It is important how we view our lifespan and the value we place upon it. Whether you have a few days or many years each day deserves to be important enough to be considered special. It is a gift from the Almighty and should be recognized as such.

When you view each day in this manner your life takes on added meaning. Taking on a longer view will diminish the value of each day. Looking forward to a weekend trip can devalue the present day.   The Christian should never be found guilty of doing this but should always keep this in focus;

Psalm 118:24 This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Can you see how each day becomes more important and increases in value when you keep this Psalm in your mind set.  Do not allow problems to overcome our resolve and even in trials and tests we are to keep our positive attitude and not rob GOD of the glory due Him.

Romans 8:31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

2 Kings 6:16"Don't be afraid," the prophet answered. "Those who are with us are more than those who are with them."

Let tomorrow be filled with exaltation to the one and only GOD JEHOVAH for he is worthy to be praised.

Matthew 6:27"Which of you, by being anxious, can add one moment to his lifespan”?

The answer is no one.
Let us not shorten nor waste or devalue any of our days.

  1. I so agree......our society is made of of rushing from thing to thin. People cannot be quiet! Churches cater to stimulated sensationalism and wanderlust. Being still isn't even a consideration....let alone being thankful and savoring one day at a time. Well said!

  3. I couldn't agree more. I've read a quote before that says, "Life is short, no matter how long you live."
    And worrying doesn't add a day in our lives. In fact, it may even shorten it for worrying can cause sickness. Science agrees!
