This morning when I was taking my walk, I noticed an increasing number of colored leaves on the pavement. They weren't very colorful, but it is still early in the season. As I looked up into the trees, they were still very covered with their leaves, and most of them are still green. I look forward to the trees becoming more colorful and beautiful as the weeks go by. Unfortunately, too soon they will all be void of their leaves, and winter will be upon us.
This reminds me of my life, and maybe yours. Having recently lost my Dad, I have come to the realization that life can be too short. Now that both of my parents are gone, I have the feeling that I am next! I hear that this is common with others who don't have their parents with them anymore, so I'm not alone.
But, then I wonder, am I making the most of the days that God is giving me? Am I doing what really matters? What is my legacy? Is there still time to make a difference and imprint on this world?
Have I reached out to others? Have I shown them love? Have I given up my time to give to someone else who needed me? Or have I lived my life to meet my own desires?
There is still time. There is still time to love others with the love that Jesus has shown me. There is still time to share the hope that I have of an eternal life with Him. There is still time to love Him. With all my heart. And all my being. There is still time to know more about the One who loved me first.
I pray that in the days that God gives me, that I will glorify Him. That others will be able to see the outpouring of His Spirit in me. That even though the days may get troubling, I will still exhibit His supernatural peace, for He will always be with me.
There is still time...
