I’m in my thirties. I have a good palate but I’m not very fond of creamy cakes for some reasons. I’m not that ‘old’ to write my thoughts about life. But there are certain things I’d been through, which make me write this piece. By the way, today’s my birthday!
From my near death experience to having a glimpse of Heaven, life here on earth is as good as it gets. My life, we usually called it, was not really in my hands. In the hands of God, who created me, I will return in His time. And for that, the way of life and the way back to Him were clearly stated. Life’s like an infatuation.
In that few seconds, what I treasured and my cherished moments will vanished in thin air. However, I should not be mistaken for this; life should be lived to its fullest but there would be judgment on our life after death.
Life is like sequences of forming a circle. It is God who formed or created us. Here, King David wrote our beginning:
For (God) You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
In between, while living our life here on earth, there is one important thing we should not missed. Sciences and their innovations or inventions are meant to help live our life easier. Every effort was put to re-discover or research about the great work of God. In the midst of all this, there is a certain way that will lead back us to God. Have a look at this:
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
If we accept Him that means we go through the right way. Victory over death we’ll proclaimed, as He did. If there is no hope of life after death, for me, I don’t find it worth suffering each day. Let’s read here again that:
…We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed—in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
That is the day eagerly awaited by the believers. We can be one of them.
Now if you see, life is like a circle: We were formed by God, we lived here on earth, and going back to Him is inevitable.
Many times, I know, God doesn’t make sense. Probably, when my desires are not met by Him in the way I wanted it to be. Human wants are unlimited, and we knew it. I hope we’ve been through that hard times but it doesn’t lasts forever. Hang in there and wait for Him. One after another, we will be delivered. Not necessarily in the way we wanted, but it will be in His ways.
Read: Psalms 139:13, John 14:6, 1 Cor. 15:51-52.
