I recently came across an Instragram post where a young man was killed by someone while sitting in his car. Now this gentleman was well loved by his community. Very positive person, and that breaks my heart. When I see things like this it just continues to confirm life is not promised, no moment is. We live in time where we plan everything if we can't do it today will get it tomorrow. I am guilty as well and never think about if tomorrow does not come for me.. A few things with this.
Do your family and friends know how much you love them? We hold things against people when we are mad at them but in the bigger picture is it worth it. Can you forgive them for what they have done wrong and just enjoy the time you have them in your life. Not saying that you have to like what they did, but forgiveness is so powerful. You need that for yourself as well. Even in the Bible it says Colossians 3:13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the lord forgave you. On this journey of faith our spirit must be balanced and forgiving allows a peace within.
Do you have things in order for your loved ones so that a burden is not placed on them when it is your time? Not saying anything negative, but so many times when our loved ones are taking the next thing we see our Go Funds for help with funeral costs. I know we don't like to think about when the time comes and when we are not here but when God calls us home it's our time. We can go buy the newest Jordans, vacation and whatever your pleasure is but we Do Not have life insurance. Example a 35 year old non smoker would pay in average of $61 per month for $1,000,000. Just an example but I challenge you if you have not already done so look into this for yourself so we can help our family when our time comes. I am guilty as well but I will be checking for myself.
I encourage you to live life to its fullest yes we have responsibilities but enjoy the moments. The moments are not promised. Don't stress, worry, those things are not of the lord!
