Every morning as I drive to school I pass this field. As the seasons have changed I have watched it go from a field of green, green trees and grass to a field of freshly cut hay now lying in round bales to collect for winter feed for someone’s livestock.
It’s oh so fall-ish. I love it!
Especially as the early morning mist or fog rolls in to cover it before the sun warms it, and it disappears.
Looking out over it reminded me of the bible verse about how brief our lives actually are. How we have no knowledge or control of when they will end.
That got me thinking.
Am I content with my life as I am living it today? If I had the foreknowledge to know when my limited time were to draw to an end would I be doing the same things I am doing now? Or would I be doing something different?
How about you?
Let’s not walk around in a fog, but live deliberately with a purpose. It’s God’s plan for us. Contrary to popular belief, our lives were not created with the sole purpose of being spent totally on ourselves, fulfilling only our own selfish desires.
Let’s all turn on our fog lights and look more clearly ahead to the path before us God has planned. Let’s live our lives more deliberately to their fullest today for we know not what tomorrow will bring.
How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog–it’s here a little while, then it’s gone.
Love and laughter,
