BFS Assignment #107 -- When There's No Tomorrow (Mercury)

Please listen to the song. Imagine you’re standing before God. There’s no Tomorrow, you can’t go back and finish up what you had planned on getting to sometime in the future. What was that thing that you planned on getting to, that thing that now, you’re standing before God and thinking “I wish I had gotten to that…”

Assignment: We only have today. Should God take you today, have you accomplished everything that you wanted to, needed to. Have you said all the things that needed to be said? Let’s have no regrets, let’s make sure we get to those things, so that when we’re standing before the Lord, the only thing we need to do is to worship him.. and not regret not getting to that thing on our to do list. Stop - go take care of that thing…. then, come tell us what you choose to share. Don’t embarrass yourself or any of your loved ones.

That song is one of my favorites...you can tell because I even have it on my song list over to the right. And -- you know, it's so true that we often don't take the time to do those things that we really should.

This is a tough post...it really makes you sit and think. I know I have done and said some things in my life that were wrong. I try not to look at them as regrets but as a learning/life lesson. You see, it is every decision I have made, whether right or wrong, that has shaped me into the person I am today. Am I perfect? No, none of us are. But -- I wouldn't go back and change anything. Life is a lesson that we learn every day, and I'm so thankful that God takes the time to use everything I do and say to teach me more about Him and His glory.

The verse that is on my mind right now is 1 Peter 1:16b -- "Be holy, for I am holy." I am trying to be a better person and cherish every person and relationship in my life. We are not guaranteed tomorrow, so we need to do today what we may not get to do tomorrow.

Speaking of tomorrow, when I think of tomorrow, the main thing I picture is my children. Brian and I have been blessed with two precious boys. Caleb is 5, and Micah will soon be 8 months old. You see, they are the ones who will go on to share God's love with everyone once their daddy and I am gone (that's not a thought I want to think about right now, but it's a given at some point). So, Brian and I want to grow them up to be Godly men and help them develop a relationship with their Savior. We pray that God will use them to further His Kingdom and work.

So, here's a picture of my tomorrow:

I posted a pic of the kids too. They are our future and we need to do what we can to ensure we show them the Lord. Love your background choice...I have it on one of my blogs too!

Sherrie, what handsome young men you've been blessed with.. May Adonai guide you as you raise Mighty Men for His Kingdom.

I've got 5 boys.. I know the joy. I have a little lady too, and she is COMPLETELY different.

Just wait until the day Kaleb becomes your chauffeur (I love having a chauffeur, and it's in my future for the next few years.. my oldest just turned 16, my next will get his learners in the spring - it's only the first few times out that are hairy, then they get the hang of it.) Oh and I love that they fix my van too! I've had a few flats in the last year or so.. and I've kept my hands clean of the situation.. I just get out of the van and walk away, and they hop out and get the job done!

Boys are great!
