Now That’s Fast!

James 4:14 (NLT)

How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone.”

We spin around the sun on this big blue ball at just over 67,000 miles per hour. Now that is fast! Everything about this life is fast; fast food, fast oil changes, fast cars, fast-acting medicines, fast internet, fast trains, and fast planes. Rush, rush, rush is the beat of our life. I don’t want today’s blog to sound negative. I want it to be a reminder to make every day count. James 4:14 speaks to the temporariness of our lives. We really aren’t promised tomorrow. We only have today.  I was made to realize again, how quickly my life could have ended yesterday on the way to work. My truck began to spin out of control on a sheet of ice. I had about 15 seconds to pray for help. Thank God he answered my quick prayer! I missed every hazard and came to rest in a ditch, unscathed. I quickly assessed my vehicle and then drove out of the ditch. It could have been a very different ending. It reminded me again that as we rush along in this journey that we must make every day count. Make sure your friends and family know how much you care. Leave a legacy of good things. You never know when this fast life will be over. I hope you will make the best of your time.

Bless you today,

Chaplain Charles
