Many people avoid talking about death. It’s been on my mind lately. Not in a fearful manner. Nor am I depressed and want to die either. I lost my mom last year…she was 90 years old. I’m 49 and I think…Wow! She lived 41 years older than me. My dad died at the age of 53 when I was 15 years old. I wonder, will I live a few more years and die young like my dad, or will I live 40 years more like my mom…? I live each day as it comes not thinking of tomorrow. I don’t plan what I’m going to do next year. I do wish and pray that great things happen, but nobody knows the future. Only God. He is the only one who knows when my life on earth will end. I might even die tonight after publishing this blog. Or I might wake up tomorrow to go to work and chat with my friends and family again. Now, since I don’t know when will I die, I do wonder where my eternal life will continue. Does anyone else think about that? Or just me?
I look around, and I look at my friends, my family, everything that’s going around the world. How people are getting brainwashed with lies. How others are pursuing to gain more money. How others use drugs and alcohol to forget their suffering. But once it passes, they wake up in reality and see that nothing has changed. I’ve seen people being falsely accused and having to plead guilty just to be free and be able to stay away from those who accused him/her. I’ve seen how people say ridiculous things to their brothers and sisters, just to see their reactions, or to see if they fail and do wrong, instead of praying for them so they can be directed by God to the right direction. I have seen how the flesh gets so weak , it makes me feel so dirty before God, so unworthy, that it’s hard to fellowship and talk to the saints in church, who I know talk about me and maybe criticize my faults and decisions I make in my life. But, I don’t judge them. I just pray that they may learn to love, forgive, forget and accept me for who I am, just like God. Only God can judge us.
I learned to enjoy life. Be funny. Make others laugh and remember me as a happy man. I love to see everyone smile. All I ever wanted in my life was to have my own family. To see my babies grow up, go to school, go to college, get their own job, a car and buy their own home, so they can get married and have kids. I tried 3 times and struck out. I’ve been alone for 4 years and all I can say is, that even though I have made the same mistakes 3 times, I have learned a lot. I accepted my failures in life and I am trying to do right. Now, my goal is to be ready for when I die, I can wake up in Heaven. I really don’t want to wake up in Hell. Those places are real. And it’s for eternity. We’re here temporary. The way we live here, will be the way we will live in eternity. The beginning of wisdom is to fear God. Fear God and you will make it to Heaven. Do whatever you want or do the devil’s will and you are guaranteed to wake up in a bad horror movie, but worse, because it’s unending. Eternal. Read the Bible. Believe in Christ. It’s the only way. Don’t believe or rely nor depend on anybody. Depend on God. He is the only one who knows what you need and believe me, He always provides.
I may have struck out in my life. But I keep going. While I am alive. I will keep fighting. Trying to be the best I can be. I love when the Bible says: Love one another. It’s my motto. I nickname myself as The Legend. Because once you know me, you will never forget me. Think about your life. If you don’t believe in Heaven nor Hell, just think. What will happen when I die? Everything goes black and that’s it? Really? Ever since I was a little boy, I always felt there is a God who created us for a purpose. Ask Him. God! What is your purpose in my life? Do you want to be happy always? Do you want to feel joy always? Seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you. It’s not easy. Because the evil one doesn’t want you to be happy nor make it to Heaven. So, what are you gonna do about it? What do you think about life and death now?
It doesn’t matter what you think! What matters is that you believe in The King of kings and Lord of lords to be saved. His name is Jesus Christ. He is the way, the truth and the life. And no one can see The Father but through Him. When you like this blog, you will be added to my prayers. May God bless you. Live your life, but put your life in God’s hands and you will be blessed and ready for your last day. OH! Before I forget. Christ is coming soon. We must be ready for that also. Because we don’t know when He’s coming, nor when we will die. Be ready. Be safe and be blessed.
