In this life, God has given me more than enough time to plan ahead and to make use of my time wisely. I’m now 21 years old and the years have passed by and my chances and choices have bubbled up in those 21 long years. I have been living on Earth for quite some time now. When I get to heaven, I’ll be sure to ask God questions and I’ll be sure to talk with Him and tell Him my story about life if He wants me to. But there’s something I would never want to tell God, or even mention in front of Him.
“I thought we had more time.”
I watched 2012 and heard this phrase from Adrian Helmsley when he was analyzing how soon the Earth would reshape itself. It made me think. What if that was me? The Earth will surely come to pass as it is prophesied in the bible – and I would surely come to pass. My time on Earth is temporary and slowly fading away. Every second, I die. Am I using those seconds to give life?
Jesus said that His coming would be unexpected “Behold, I am coming quickly.” I do not know the day or hour when my master will come. But when He does, I want to be prepared – glad of His coming. I do not want to be regretful and say, “I thought, we had more time.”
My mission is to change lives. My calling – to change the world. I am God’s son, a prince of His realm. I am called to go and preach His word. I HAVE TIME NOW. I’m going to do everything I can so that I can tell God, “I did my job, I made use of my time, My Lord, I am victorious in the battle you sent me to fight.”
