As I drove home Monday listening to the radio(104.1 fm) a song came on that LITERALLY had ALL TYPE of visions running thru my head. AS my mind was RUNNING (You know how visions of things you have done in your past may cross in your mind & you can see it SO CLEAR), I began singing (& I can’t sing) SOOO HARD & LOUD and before I knew it I found myself UGLY CRYING and PRAISING GOD @ THE TOP OF MY LUNGS. I began thanking Him for saving me and not allowing me to go into “TOMORROW” continuing my life of DAILY SIN that I CLEARLY KNEW was SIN (When I TOTALLY gave MY WHOLE SELF 2 HIM). I began thanking Him for saving the lives of so many of my friends (I was calling out names) and I began BEGGING Him to CONTINUE to KEEP US ENCOURAGED to be LIVING EXAMPLES OF HIM & HIS WORD. So that we may be used to DRAW/ATTRACT the lost to TURN from their sins “TODAY” & accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior. I PRAISED GOD for FINALLY ALLOWING ME to KNOW it’s NOT ABOUT ME and that it’s ALL ABOUT HIM & KINGDOM GROWTH.
The song was called “TOMORROW” and yes it’s what we call “old school” music; however, old or new that song SPOKE VOLUMES to me about tomorrow not being promised. It spoke about how “we laugh and play and continue on today” without TOTALLY COMMITTING to Christ as if “TOMORROW” is promised. I will give you an example that plays in my mind DAILY before I end. As some of you know my brother was murdered when he was 19-years old. My brother was my VERY BEST FRIEND and vice versa; therefore, I knew him VERY WELL. He died on the scene (the steps of a church) where he was shot SUDDENLY. However, before his spirit left us the Pastor of that church came out and held him and prayed with him. I saw the Pastor from a far kneeling down with my brother and she told me what she prayed with him but because it was SUDDEN I always think “DID HE REPENT & ASK GOD INTO HIS HEART?” I think “WILL I SEE HIM AGAIN?” and it REALLY BOTHERS me because our time on earth was short-lived so I wish MORE THAN ANYTHING I could see him again. I shared this to say…..
WHY WAIT UNTIL TOMORROW GOD IS HERE TODAY?? WHY PLAY RUSSIAN ROULETTE WITH YOU SOUL?? WHY MAKE YOUR LOVE ONES WONDER IF THEY’LL SEE YOU AGAIN??
Today, be ENCOURAGED to TRULY turn from the sins that YOU KNOW will keep you from entering into ETERNITY. Be ENCOURAGED to KNOW that God NEVER TURNS from us and it’s ALWAYS us TURNING from God. Be ENCOURAGED to STOP giving God our “TOMORROW” when He is here and READY to RECEIVE us “TODAY”. Please click on the link below and I TRULY pray that after listening you will TAKE A FEW MINUTES & repent then give God your “Tomorrow” “Today”.
Proverbs 27:1 Do not boast about tomorrow,
for you do not know what a day may bring.
