"The Wait Of Life"

It often seems the waits of life will forever be.

We wait until our legs are strong, so we can walk and run, and we wait for the morning, so we can see the sun.

We wait for the day that we can start to school and for the day we can learn the golden rule.

We wait for the day that we can have a license to drive, and we wait for the last day of school to arrive, and with a life brand new, we wait for the day to say I do.

We wait for the day our children are grown, to share a life we've barely known, and we wait until we retire, to share the life that we desire.

It often seems the waits of life will forever be, but the weight has been removed from the wait, to set us free.

Christ took the weight of life, so the wait of eternal life has been taken away, and you can now have life abundant today.

2 Corinthians 1 We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain. 2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

I pray that when I leave this earth, that I will have made a difference in someone's life.  We are not put on this earth to merely breathe and exist.  I pray that I have either helped you know or be encouraged to and in Jesus Christ.  I hope to see you when you enter heaven.  I told my wife that as much as we have moved and pastored around this nation, that we'd be fortunate to have a handful at our funeral to help our family celebrate our graduating.   That's not that important.  What is important is how we love one another in this first life.  In this life, I thank you for being able to know you and to have experienced you in my life.  I pray that you will not wait to tell those that you love, that you love and appreciate them. If you know you are lost, you are not under conviction but you are convicted.  Now is the time to ask Jesus Christ into your heart.
