Hey ya’ll it’s Lizzie with Women In The Word. Today our topic is Life Is Short. It says in Psalm 19:20 “Teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”
I thought it was going to be my last day.
Has your life ever flashed in front of your eyes? I vividly remember flying back from a business trip with my best friend Mercedes, and she wasn’t by my side. Our seats were actually pretty far apart, when suddenly the alarm on the plane goes off like I’ve never heard before. I fly quite often and I’ve never heard anything like that in my life. It made the hair on my back stand up. I can’t remember a time in my life when being so frightened, and suddenly my thoughts shift to the worst. This plane is going down and I’m going to die.
And unexpectedly at that very moment I felt in my heart I was going to be ok. I call it an emotionally divine intervention. But friend let me tell you it made me think. My first thoughts were of my husband and family, and of course my salvation or the lack of. You see, I was a lost soul without Jesus. Fast forward the questions keep coming. Should I have loved harder? Should I have been more joyous? Should I have loved life differently? All these questions crossed my mind.
About this very same time the stewardess asked was there a doctor on the plane? Apparently a passenger had stopped breathing. And I think it’s fair to assume that she was probably asking herself the very same questions. Needless to say I pulled myself together and vowed to live life Gods way and to leave Lizzies behind. He will rescue you from the darkness and give you hope for a beautiful future. That will give you happiness only He can give. Are you living Gods way, or your way?
