The year of the selfie went on by like a bubble in a boiling pot….
Time for some Random Newness… whatever that may look like, dare I ask?
If we could turn back time we could change everything, but we can’t. Today is today and tomorrow is another just the same.
I’m not sure my advice on the future is any better than the next guy (and there will be quite a few who will share their thoughts in the next week) but I do know this: as of right now, there is no flux capacitor to turn back time, so we need to make the most of every moment and do the right thing, right now. The pastor at my church makes a relevant point this way: if I look at your past, and I look at the path you’re on now, I can pretty much tell what direction you’re heading in, and what’s in your future. I don’t need to be onboard Doc’s souped-up DeLorean traveling at 1.21 Gigawatts to get a grip. Eternity starts right about now; embrace it, live it, and walk it out. It’s all a part of finishing well. Think of it as the door to eternity opening on the day you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, and turn it all over to Him. This twist on finishing well is a little different from convention. Sort of a fresh, new perspective. It may make flipping over a new calendar seem pretty small, but it will change your attitude on heading home. If you wait to make the decision to finish well until the sky tears open like a curtain you very well may miss the boat, train or spaceship.
Who is wise and understanding among you? By his good conduct let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice. But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace. James 3:13-18
The prospects in eternity are endless…
The Joy of The Journey to Peace, Love and Unity beings now…
