I have been fortunate to experience many good times in my life. Tonight I had the opportunity to reflect on one honor I received several years ago. As we take time to reflect, we realize that the here and now goes away, often more quickly than we would like. We need to prepare ourselves for something more, something greater!
God has prepared eternity for us. We just have to accept His invitation for forgiveness through His Son. As we join God's family, we can overcome the here and now. Whether we face difficult times or times of joy, we can be assured that what God has in store is far greater than anything we experience on earth. With faith, we can be so much more than the here and now!
Enjoy the here and now, but prepare for much greater things with God for eternity!
Thank You for all that You provide for me here and now. Help me to trust in You for eternity. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
